Daniel McQuilton: I’ve had enough jail

24 Apr 2014, midnight

A SUPERVISED sex offender who removed his electronic tracking device told Corrective Services staff “I’m not going back to jail” when they urged him to hand himself in.

Corrective Services was able to make contact with Daniel Anthony McQuilton after he removed the monitoring device in central Sydney last Wednesday, triggering an alarm.

He admitted to them that he had removed the device.

When staff encouraged him to return he told them: “It is not living on this order and I’m not doing it any more. I’ve had enough.”

McQuilton, who is classified a high-risk sex offender, later car-jacked a woman in Bondi Junction and fled in her stolen Mitsubishi Lancer to Wodonga, where he lost control of the car and hit a tree in London Road in the early hours of Good Friday.

Soon after he handed himself in to police at Wodonga.

McQuilton did not apply for bail when he appeared in Albury Local Court yesterday after his extradition from Victoria to NSW on Tuesday.

He entered guilty pleas to three counts of failing to comply with a supervision order, assault with intent to take a motor vehicle, not giving details to owner of damaged property and failing to stop when pursued by police.

He is yet to enter a plea to a charge of unlicensed driving.

McQuilton was jailed in 2009 for three years over the sexual assault and bashing of a Wodonga dancer in Young Street, Albury, in 2008.

In January, the Supreme Court placed him on an extended supervision order for two years and six months, requiring him to wear the tracking device.

Magistrate Tony Murray adjourned the matters for sentencing in Sydney on June 11.

He ordered a psychiatric assessment of McQuilton.

Guilty plea for sex attack accused

Posted 25 Nov 2008, 11:14am

A man has pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault after a dance student was attacked in Albury in July.

Daniel Anthony McQuilton, 21, of Tangambalanga, has appeared in the Albury Local Court.

A statement tendered to the court alleges McQuilton approached a woman from behind as she went to her car in the Crisp Street car park and grabbed her by the face, saying he was not going to hurt her.

It said the woman struggled and McQuilton punched her once to the head area and then sexually assaulted her.

The statement alleges the woman fell to the ground and McQuilton kneed her once in the face before she ran away. McQuilton turned himself in to police five days later.

The statement says he later expressed remorse and said it was a spur of the moment decision resulting from a frustration with women.

He has been remanded in custody and will return to court in February.

The Court of Criminal Appeal has dismissed an appeal by Joseph Rosenburg against his convictions and sentence for three counts of sexual intercourse without consent and three of indecent assault, arising out of a single incident in Hyde Park. The Court found that the verdicts of guilty were well and truly open on the evidence and there was no error in sentencing.



Hyde Park rapist Joseph Stephen Rosenburg sentenced to 11 years’ jail

  • June 19, 2015 6:34PM

A MAN who raped a drunk teenager in Sydney’s Hyde Park has been sentenced to a maximum of 11 years for the “predatory” attack.

Joseph Stephen Rosenburg exhaled deeply after the sentence was handed down but said nothing.

The 52-year-old was found guilty in February of three counts of sexual intercourse without consent and three charges of indecent assault against the 18-year-old woman in August 2013.

Rosenburg indecently assaulted the heavily intoxicated teen outside Starbucks in the CBD before following her into the city park and forcing her to perform oral and anal sex.

During the attack, he told the teen “I’m not going to kill you if you go with it”.

Afterwards, the hysterical teenager called a friend to pick her up, saying, “he has hurt me, he has hurt me. He raped me, he raped me”.

When the friend found her outside St James railway station, she was curled up in a ball, her make-up was smeared all over her face and there were scratches high up on her legs.

In sentencing him in the Downing Centre District Court on Friday, Judge Stephen Hanley said the teen had continually told Rosenburg throughout the attack, “Please don’t do this”, but he carried on saying, “Shh”.

“He was motivated by his own sexual gratification and had no regard of the discomfort and humiliation experienced by his victim,” Judge Hanley said.

“I am satisfied his behaviour was predatory.”

He said Rosenburg had shown “no contrition at all” and seemed to hold his victim responsible.

Rosenburg, who represented himself in the sentencing proceedings, made a number of bizarre claims on Friday, including that he was as “traumatised” as his victim, and that she should have told him to “f*** off” if she wasn’t consenting.

He was sentenced to at least eight years and three months’ jail and will be eligible for parole in June 2022.

It comes after his disturbing criminal history was revealed in court documents this week.

In February 1993, when he was 29, Rosenburg crawled through a window of a Crows Nest home in Sydney’s north and into the bed of a five-year-old girl.

He exposed himself and performed oral sex on her, saying “I’ll come back tomorrow and I’ll bring you some lollies”.

He was also jailed in 2007 after attacking his sister’s partner with a metal bar on Christmas Day 2006, fracturing his face. Rosenburg has indicated he will appeal his conviction over the Hyde Park assault.

Man found guilty of Hyde Park teen rape


A man accused of raping a drunk teenager in Sydney’s Hyde Park while saying “I’m not going to kill you if you go with it”, has been found guilty of six sex offences.

It took just over an hour of deliberations for the jury in Joseph Stephen Rosenburg’s trial to find him guilty of three counts of sexual intercourse without consent and three charges of indecent assault.

After the jury had delivered their verdict and left the court, Rosenburg claimed he had been “scammed”.

During his trial, the District Court heard the 18-year-old girl, who cannot be named, had been out with friends at a bar in Oxford Street on August 29, 2013.

Heavily intoxicated, she eventually left in a taxi with an unknown man who, after she was sick, left her on the side of the road.

She said in the early hours of August 30, as she lay down next to a building opposite Hyde Park in Sydney’s city centre, Rosenburg went up to her and put his hand up her dress.

In a bid to escape the 51-year-old, she said she went into the park and lay down near a tree.

Rosenburg followed her and began touching her, saying, “I’m not going to kill you if you go with it.”

The court heard that as she pleaded with him to stop, he forced her to perform oral and anal sex.

Afterwards, the teenager called a friend to pick her up, saying, “He has hurt me, he has hurt me. He raped me, he raped me.”

The friend said when she found her outside St James Station, the 18-year-old was curled up in a ball.

“Her make-up was smeared all over her face. There were scratches high up on her legs,” the friend said.

“When she saw me she cried and grabbed my arm and didn’t want to let go.”

Rosenburg will be sentenced in April.

Baseball scout in breach of child protection register

Article from: Daily Telegraph

HE BILLS himself as “the Jerry Maguire of Australian baseball”, a talent scout recruiting for the American major leagues.

But Trevor Jarrett has a conviction for possessing child pornography and, as a registered offender under child protection laws, failed to tell police he was working with children.

He claimed he was retired but police discovered Jarrett owned and ran BJS Player Management, which caters to teenage baseball players aiming for the big league. It came to light after he was stopped while driving with a 17-year-old aspiring baseball player in the car.

When Jarrett, 63, faced Downing Centre Local Court yesterday he pleaded guilty to three charges, including providing false information about his registration on the Child Protection Register.

Numerous recruitment letters sent to parents or their children – members of the NSW Junior Baseball League or AA League – were found on his laptop, court papers revealed.

“I am the most experienced baseball agent in Australia,” Jarrett wrote. “I take . . . a ‘holistic’ approach to being an agent – I am concerned for the overall well-being of my players. I become their manager; their confidant; their friend.”

The former Australian Baseball Federation president boasts as clients five of the seven Australians currently in the major leagues.

He has coached junior state teams, managed several Australian youth teams and as a past chairman of selectors is responsible for developing youth baseball in Australia.

In April 2005, Jarrett was given a suspended nine-month jail term for possessing child pornography and put on a good behaviour bond.

He will face sentencing in April.

Child porn conviction in baseball agent’s past

HE CALLS himself the “Jerry Maguire of Australian baseball” and the sport’s most experienced Australian agent.

His sales pitch to young male clients promises a chance at winning lucrative overseas contracts playing in professional leagues, telling them his management is “an opportunity you don’t want to miss”.

But what Trevor Lindsay Jarrett has not told potential recruits and their parents is that he was convicted in 2005 of possessing child pornography.

Until 30 days ago, when the police came calling, the Australian Baseball Federation was also unaware of his past.

The federation, of which Jarrett, 63, is a lifetime member, also did not know his name was on the Child Protection Registry or that he was required to report regularly to Kings Cross police.

Yesterday in the Downing Centre Local Court, Jarrett pleaded guilty to providing false or misleading information when he told police he was unemployed and had no affiliation with any club or organisation in which children take part. He pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to comply with reporting obligations under child protection laws.

Jarrett, of East Sydney, came to the attention of police when they stopped a car he was travelling in on the F3 at Ourimbah. The 17-year-old driver said Jarrett was helping him sign a contract in the US to play in the pro baseball league.

Jarrett was given a nine-month suspended sentence for possessing child pornography.

The magistrate, Antony Townsden, ordered Jarrett undergo a psychiatric assessment before sentencing on April 3.
