Adelaide online predator jailed


November 14, 2014, 4:25 pm

An Adelaide man who groomed a 14-year-old girl for a sexual relationship through an online game has been jailed.

Roy Jonas drove from his home in Adelaide to Melbourne to meet the girl after exchanging intimate details with her online.

The pair engaged in sexual acts in the 41-year-old’s car and in a hotel room during the trip in May 2013.

The pair maintained their sexual relationship for two months, the Victorian County Court heard.

Judge Mark Dean said Jonas took advantage of the girl’s troubled past to strike up a sexual relationship with her.

“You were significantly older than her, and were aware that she was vulnerable and confused,” he told Jonas on Friday.

“You were also aware that she had a disrupted home life and did not have the support of her parents.”

Jonas pleaded guilty to committing an indecent act with a child under 16 and two counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16.

Judge Dean sentenced him to three-and-a-half years in prison, of which he must serve two years before becoming eligible for parole.

‘Bored’ mechanic convicted over child porn

Christine Kellett | December 21, 2007 – 2:37PM

A Brisbane mechanic downloaded dozens of videos of children having sex with eachother because he was “bored”, a court has heard.

Mark Lewis of the south-western suburb of Springfields Lakes was caught with 179 lewd images and videos on his home computer following a raid by police on April 7 this year.

The 37-year-old’s private collection included 90 videos and 36 shared Internet files showing children as young as 10 being raped by adults and eachother.

He pleaded guilty in Brisbane’s district court today to one count of possessing child exploitation material, but walked out a free man after Judge Kerry O’brien wholly suspended a six month jail term.

Lewis’s defence counsel Stephen Kissick argued his client worked 10 hours per day, six days per week and took drugs which lowered his inhibitions.

In a recorded police interview, Lewis admitted he watched the child abuse for sexual gratification and had been doing so for some time.

“I don’t know,  I just get bored,” Lewis told investigators.

“It’s sheer boredom sometimes.”

Although there was no suggestion that Lewis was a risk to children or has distributed the material to others, Judge O’Brien said his taste for ‘”disgusting” child pornography inevitably resulted in abuse of young victims.

“This conduct contributes in some manner to the exploitation of children which the community sees as abhorrent,” Judge O’Brien said.

Lewis was released on a 12-month good behaviour bond.
