In 2010, Andrews was the Australian Democrats candidate in the seat of Sturt, SA. He withdrew from the federal election after admitting to a Channel 7 news reporter that he had been convicted of trying to procure a child for sex over the internet.

Bond imposed over internet sex bid

Posted Mon Jun 29, 2009 6:17pm AEST

A disabled man who tried to arrange sexual contact with teenage boys on the internet has been given a good behaviour bond.

Darren James Andrews, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of communicating to make a child amenable to sexual activity.

The District Court in Adelaide heard he advertised on a dating website, clearly seeking meetings with boys for sexual purposes.

He arranged two meetings – one with a boy, 15, and the other with a police officer posing as a boy, but did not turn up to either.

The court heard Andrews suffers from a physical disability and learning disabilities and lives with his mother.

The judge suspended his six-month non-parole term and put him on a three-year good behaviour bond.
