Updated 10 Mar 2009, 12:35pm

An Adelaide court has heard that a rapist subjected two Riverland women to a terrifying and horrific ordeal.

Trevor William Wilson, 27, had pleaded guilty to serious criminal trespass and rape.

District Court judge Steven Millsteed said Wilson broke into the women’s house at Berri in December 2005 and raped them at knifepoint.

Judge Millsteed sentenced Wilson to 10 years in jail, backdated to February last year.

He will be eligible for parole in 2014.

Child rapists get more jail

TWO Aboriginal men sentenced for horrific sex crimes against a baby and a toddler have been given longer jail sentences following prosecution appeals.

Gerhardt Max Inkamala, 21, convicted of digital rape of a seven-month-old at Hermannsburg in the Northern Territory in 2003, had his sentence more than doubled to nine years.

Inkamala took the girl, from her bedroom while her carers slept, and inflicted life-threatening injuries.

Inkamala was 18 at the time of the offence, of below average intelligence and had drug and alcohol problems. He resisted returning her after assaulting her. He had tried to steal the girl earlier.

Chief Justice Brian Martin said there was no suggestion that the crime was in any way related to traditional Aboriginal law or culture.”

Last month, Justice Martin said he had made a mistake in sentencing an Aboriginal elder to just one month’s jail for having anal sex with a 14-year-old girl and bashing her with a boomerang, saying he placed too much emphasis on Aboriginal customary law.

The prosecution appealed against Inkamala’s original sentence of four years and also against the partial restoration of an earlier sentence for rape that had been suspended after six months.

Morgan Jabanardi Riley, 27, who was sentenced for the digital, anal and vaginal rape of a two-year old girl in Tennant Creek in November 2004, also received an increased sentence yesterday.

The Court of Criminal Appeal extended his original sentence of six years to eight years.

Riley’s victim lived in an Aboriginal community at Tennant Creek and was playing in her front yard when he took her away to the bush and raped her. The toddler had been wearing a pink T-shirt and a nappy.

Riley had just woken from a drunken sleep after drinking two 700-millilitre bottles of port with his father.

Riley, who pleaded guilty, caused significant injury to the child.

Justice Martin said that if it had been the first hearing, and not an appeal, he would have regarded a sentence of 12 years as appropriate for the rape.
