Rehab Effort Helps Sex Offender

A Western Australian man who sexually abused a young girl has received a shorter than usual jail term because of his attempts to rehabilitate himself.
In the South Australian District Court today, David Edison Knight was jailed for at least five years.
Knight, 44, of Port Kennedy, admitted his offending to his wife last year.
Last month, he pleaded guilty to three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse – two counts relating to when the victim was under 12 – one count of committing an act of gross indecency and one count of indecent assault.
The offences occurred in SA between 1995 and 2000, when the victim was aged between seven and 13.
Judge Jeffrey Anderson today said the charges were representative of a series of offences which occurred on a weekly basis for many years.peWithin a week of admitting the offences, Knight started therapy with a psychologist.
"You have satisfactorily completed lengthy and rigorous counselling sessions from that time to the present," Judge Anderson said.
"You have been reassessed after 12 months and have voluntarily attended a fortnightly follow-up group.
"It is apparent ... from the contents of the psychological report that you understand that you have been responsible for a gross breach of trust."
Judge Anderson said he would have imposed a jail term of 13 years if Knight had not pleaded guilty.
Instead, he sentenced Knight to nine years and nine months imprisonment, with a non-parole period of five years and four months.
"I am influenced by the opinion of your treating psychologist that, because of the early way in which you sought treatment and the realistic way you so approached it, recognising and facing up to your failings, it is unlikely that you will reoffend or present a continuing risk to the community upon your release from prison," Judge Anderson said.
"Because of this, I shall fix a shorter than usual non-parole period."
