Court Rejects Bid To Extend Paedophile's Jail Term

The Court of Criminal Appeal in South Australia has rejected a bid by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to extend the jail term for a 27-year-old paedophile.
Derek Lee Cambridge is serving a 10 year prison term for the systematic sexual abuse of young boys he had befriended at suburban playgrounds.
Cambridge, who videotaped his crimes for his own sexual gratification, received a non-parole period of four-and-a-half years.
The DPP applied for leave to appeal the sentence on the grounds that it was "manifestly inadequate".
Justice John Perry said he believed the sentence was too low and would have extended the non-parole period from four-and-a-half years to six-and-a-half years.
However, Justice Ann Vanstone and Chief Justice John Doyle said while they believed the non-parole period was low it could not be considered "manifestly inadequate".
The sentence stands.

I Feel Betrayed. He Will Offend Again....
FACE to face with the man who sexually abused their sons, "Mary" and "Melissa" resisted the urge to take the law into their own hands.
Having chased down and caught Derek Lee Mason Cambridge, the women and their husbands handed him over to the police, placing their faith in the justice system.
That faith, however, was "betrayed" yesterday, when the Court of Criminal Appeal refused to increase Cambridge's 10-year sentence. "We only handed him over in such good condition because we thought that justice would be done," Mary said outside court.
"Obviously, we were wrong."
Melissa said the refusal had left her feeling "nauseated".
"I absolutely feel betrayed - in fact, betrayed is putting it quite mildly," she said.
"There is no way this guy feels remorse for what he has done .., the only thing that he's upset about is that he got caught and is out of action for a while."
Cambridge, of Kurralta Park, pleaded guilty to committing 18 sex offences against four boys, including Mary and Melissa's sons.
The seven-year-olds were lured into a creek bed by Cambridge, who offered them money before assaulting and videotaping them.
He was arrested after the boys recognised him in a park near their homes, and their families chased him down, Cambridge's 4-year non- parole period prompted a Crown appeal on the grounds it was manifestly inadequate, and could affect future sex offence sentences.
In a 2-1 decision yesterday, Chief Justice John Doyle and Justice Ann Vanstone agreed Cambridge's imprisonment was merciful, but "not so low" as to be inadequate.
Justice John Perry, dissenting, said the non-parole period should have been increased to six years.
Mary said the majority ruling only increased her family's pain.
"The question remains, what is too low? What is an appropriate punishment for taking the innocence of four young boys?" she said.
"I'm so angry, so disgusted ... we all know he will do it again, and I feel sorry for the next person who has to deal with him. Maybe then he'll be dealt with more strongly."
Melissa said the sentence felt "more like a countdown" to Cambridge's release.
"Fear for our son's safety will be with me for the rest of my life. How do I know that, one day, he won't be walking down the street?" she said.
"Imagine the urges that will build up in him while he is locked away ... he will offend again, that is something I will bet on."
