Tickler Jailed

BENDIGO'S Toe Tickler was yesterday jailed for at least two- and-a-half years by a Bendigo judge who revealed the criminal had little empathy for his victims and could not understand why police had locked him up. Clinton Kirkbride pleaded guilty in the Bendigo County Court on Tuesday to two counts of aggravated burglary. Evidence was given that late at night he entered the bedrooms of young children.
The Bendigo man had been found guilty in 1996 of similar offences against 18 victims, but was released from custody to serve his sentence in the community.
Outside the court the parents of Kirkbride's latest victims labelled the man as evil, saying they were relieved he had been locked up.
"At least he has been put away for a period of time. "The community is safe (for a while); he will keep reoffending," the families said.
"(The sentence) is never enough, but it was longer than we were expecting."
Yesterday Judge Graham Anderson quoted extensively from a psychological report prepared a fortnight ago.
The report stated Kirkbride was "puzzled why he was incarcerated for the offences" and "tended to attribute contributory negligence to the victims".
The psychologist found Kirkbride's empathy for the victims was superficial and his remorse was principally on account of his detection.
In interviews with police, when be finally confessed to the two break-ins. Kirkbride said he only wanted to touch the children "like a parent would". "I love lads." he told police- "I'd like to have my own. I'm just lonely."
Judge Anderson said that before the December incident, Kirkbride drove around the city after a function involving the Victory Christian Centre Church he belonged to.
He was disturbed in his victim's back yard by a barking dog, but returned later to enter the home through the laundry.
Before the first incident in February, Kirkbride had met the victim's family through the church and had even dropped something off at the home on an earlier occasion.
When he was disturbed, Kirkbride was seen kneeling by the bedside of the sleeping 13-year- old boy.
"I had no intention to harm anybody," Kirkbride told police.
"I have this loneliness, wanting to have my own family.
"For some reason I don't think God is going to bless me with my own family.
"I just wanted to touch them like a parent would touch their face and stroke their hair.
"It was never my intention for them to wake up , I wanted them to be peaceful and sleep and not wake up."
Psychological assessments of Kirkbride, completed for the 1996 court appearance, said the man had a form of sexual deviation and fixation involving specific inanimate objects non-sexual parts of the body.
The expert found Kirkbride was unable to control his unusual sexual fantasies and the impulse to act on them.
A second report stated KirItbride sought intimacy from partners who posed no risk of harm to himself, the judge saying a sleeping child epitomised that closeness.
Kirkbride was ordered to serve four-and-a-half years' jail, with a non-parole period of two-and-a- half years.
