Victim says don't let him out

The last victim of a serial sex offender sentenced this week for breaching a Department of Justice supervision order says the system failed to protect her.
Gary Collingwood, a registered sex offender for life, breached the conditions of a supervision order when he violently raped Karen at knife point in Kangaroo Flat earlier this year.
Collingwood was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet as part of his order when he committed the crime.
He was sentenced by Judge Maidment in July to 13 years and six months’ imprisonment, with a minimum term of 10 years for the rape, and pleaded guilty in the County Court in November to four charges of breaching the supervision order.
Judge Meryl Sexton yesterday said Collingwood breached the conditions when he raped Karen at knifepoint, threatened to kill her, taped her wrists and ankles, blindfolded her and gagged her.
In 2001, Collingwood was sentenced to 13 years 6 months’ imprisonment for a number of offences in Western Australia, including eight charges of rape and three charges of indecent assault against a woman.
On being granted parole, Collingwood came to Victoria and was subject to a supervision order.
Collingwood breached the order by twice consuming alcohol, leaving his home after a curfew and raping Karen.
He was this week sentenced to four years three months’ imprisonment with three years and 10 months of the sentence to be served cumulatively on the sentence imposed in July. Judge Sexton set a new non-parole period of 13 years and six months.
Karen, who until recently wanted to be known as Sarah but has chosen to use her Christian name to give strength to other victims, believes the punishment does not reflect the concerns held about Collingwood's release into the community.
"People like him shouldn't be released,'' she said.
"What's the point of the supervision order, when they get only one month or two months for breaches which lead them to do the things they do?
"This is why conditions on these orders, to minimise the risk. It means nothing, yet this has destroyed my life and the poor woman in Western Australia.
"I hope he never comes out - I feel physically sick that one day he will get out. He will kill his next victim.''

EARLIER: A serial sex offender who committed his last violent rape while under a Department of Justice supervision order has been given four months' jail for failing to comply - most of which will be served with his current sentence for his latest crime.
In the County Court Friday afternoon, Judge Meryl Sexton sentenced Gary Collingwood to four years three months’ imprisonment for breaching the order when he violently raped a woman, with a new non-parole period set of 13 years and 6 months.
Collingwood breached the conditions of a supervision order when he violently raped a woman at knife point in Kangaroo Flat earlier this year.
He was sentenced by Judge Maidment in July to 13 years 6 months’ imprisonment, with a minimum term of 10 years, for the rape.
The Bendigo Advertiser revealed in July that Collingwood was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet as part of his order when he committed the crime.
He pleaded guilty in the County Court in November to four charges of breaching the supervision order.
Crown prosecutor Peter Rose said Collingwood breached the order by committing a relevant offence in Victoria - the charges of rape, false imprisonment and threat to kill last January.
Mr Rose told Judge Sexton Collingwood was a registered sex offender for life with an extensive history of sexual and violent offending that includes multiple convictions for rape.

'Horrific' rapist Gary John Collingwood faces life in prison

A rapist jailed this year for more than 13 years for "horrific" repeat crimes committed six months after his release from prison may now die behind bars.
Gary John Collingwood, 47, was jailed in Western Australia in 2001 for multiple sex, violence and threat offences against a woman, and last year was put on a 12-year supervision order by a Victorian judge.
Under the order made that July, Collingwood was subjected to 20 conditions that included not reoffending, being subject to a curfew and not drinking alcohol.
But in his Kangaroo Flat unit on January 12 this year he raped a woman at knife point, in "frightening and aggressive" circumstances, who he had met through a dating website, while wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet as part of his order.
Gary John Collingwood
Crown prosecutor Peter Rose, SC, revealed that in a legal first, one of the charges has been subject to a "direct indictment", which meant that instead of Collingwood facing a maximum term of two years, it attracted a maximum of five years jail.
Until now, all breaches of such orders have been heard summarily before a judge, with the consent of the secretary of the Department of Justice, with the two-year maximum term.
In his opening, Mr Rose said Collingwood had breached the order by committing a relevant offence in Victoria - the charges of rape, false imprisonment and threat to kill last January - and by consuming alcohol and disobeying a curfew the previous November and December.
Mr Rose told Judge Sexton that Collingwood was a registered sex offender for life with an extensive history of sexual and violent offending that includes multiple convictions for rape.
He described Collingwood's most recent offending as "among the worst" and of a "fairly horrific type", with the protection of the community "paramount".
"The community will need to be protected from this man for a long time to come," he submitted.
Defence lawyer Katherine Napier conceded that community protection was paramount, but told Judge Sexton the central issue was the ultimate length of the sentence.
Ms Napier said Collingwood was a "man full of deep shame and regret" who "does not want to continue to hurt people" but was "struggling to understand why he has continued to offend in this manner".
She referred to his "horrific childhood", which a psychologist reported on in evidence at Collingwood's plea hearing for the offences in January, and who had diagnosed a borderline personality disorder.
Ms Napier also noted her client's early guilty pleas, and that his remorse was evidenced by an overdose of pills he took at the crime scene before he repeated "oh, f---, what have I done?"
Ms Napier said it was "not difficult to contend" that her client "may never be paroled".
Judge Sexton will sentence Collingwood on December 13.

Sex predator 'was a ticking time bomb'

A violent sex predator released from prison on a government supervision order continually breached the conditions without any punishment in the weeks before raping another woman.
Gary John Collingwood, exposed by the Sunday Herald Sun last week, broke the terms of his order at least eight times with no consequence, it can now be revealed.
Incident reports for each breach were flagged with the Adult Parole Board and Secretary of the Department of Justice.
But instead of hauling him before the courts or even sending him back to a residential facility for serious sex offenders, Collingwood's blatant disregard for the law was simply ignored.
Days later he tied up and raped a Victorian woman at knifepoint at his Kangaroo Flat unit.
Victim Karen Harrison, 40, has bravely waived her right to anonymity and will consult with Shine Lawyers about possible legal action.
"I want authorities to realise I am a real person who has been let down by judicial system failures," Ms Harrison said about wanting to reveal her identity.
"I think they see the fake name of 'Sarah' or 'Jane' and in their heads want to believe it's a fake person talking about a fake crime.
It's not. I'm living a nightmare and if only they took action when he breached his order the first, second, third or even eighth time, I would not have been raped.
"He was a ticking time bomb and despite warning after warning, they did nothing."
The latest parole bungle follows revelations in the Herald Sun that parolee Jason John Dinsley, who pleaded guilty on Thursday to murdering Ballarat mother Sharon Siermans in April, had failed a drug test several days earlier.
But he remained at liberty to kill Ms Siermans. His parole was not cancelled until two days after the murder.
The board has failed to answer questions about bungles that have allowed parolees to murder at least a dozen Victorians.

PROFILES: Killers on parole

CAFFERKEY CASE: Sarah didn't stand a chance against Hunter

RUDD CASE: Devries guilty of murder, manslaughter

BIZARRE MURDER: Plea to Parole Board over identity killer

WICKING CASE: Killer told triple-0 operators pleas were 'a mistake'

MEAGHER CASE: Bayley on parole when Jill was murdered

CAMPAIGN: Accused was rapist on parole

The Sunday Herald Sun can now reveal Collingwood spent only a short amount of time at Corella Place, a residential facility for serious sex offenders, before being allowed to live with a woman heavily pregnant to an ex-cell mate of his.
It is understood she moved out after a series of drunken violent incidents.
Collingwood, 46, then breached the supervision order eight times over Christmas and New Year by drinking heavily, taking drugs and not adhering to a curfew.
But still no action was taken and on January 12, Ms Harrison was raped.
Ms Harrison is convinced he will strike again and "his next victim, will be a dead victim".
Ms Harrison said she wants to take legal action because the State Government had been "incompetent".
"What I've learned this week has sickened me to the pit of my stomach," she said.
"You put your faith in the justice system, trust that it runs to protect innocent people but I feel I was sacrificed, my life destroyed, before they took any action against this monster.
"And not once has anyone said sorry or explained what they did do to protect me.
"I want these questions answered. I feel I am owed that, at least."

Questions The Parole Board Failed To Answer
Did the board act correctly in its management of Adrian Bayley?
Did the board act correctly in its management of Jason Dinsley?
Should the board have acted differently?
Can Victorians be confident the board has learned anything from their cases?
Why has the board said nothing in its defence since Bayley was convicted?
Will the board apologise to the families of the Victorians murdered by parolees?

Serial rapist strikes months after prison release

A violent serial sex attacker raped a woman just months after being freed from prison on a government supervision order, the Sunday Herald Sun can exclusively reveal.
Authorities said Gary John Barker, who changed his surname to Collingwood after his beloved football team, had an "abysmally poor" chance at rehabilitation and was a "serious high-risk" of reoffending.
But he was released with an electronic ankle bracelet and just five months later he brutally raped a Victorian woman.
The Sunday Herald Sun can exclusively reveal the evil predator has an extensive sexual and violent criminal history dating back to 1984.
His latest victim, 40, who can only be identified as "Ms H", wants to know; Why was he ever allowed out to strike again?
"How many sex offences does he have to commit before they lock him up for good?" she asked.
"They say he is at high risk of offending and then they let him loose with next-to-no scrutiny. The justice system recognised the danger, then just let him free to do it again.
"I am a victim now. My life is destroyed because the system puts the rights of criminals before that of innocent people," she said.
Collingwood, 46, has offended while on parole and committed serious offences across New South Wales and Western Australia, before targeting Ms H in Victoria this year.
After several spells in prison, depraved Collingwood held a woman captive at knifepoint and subjected her to violent sexual assaults over 24 hours in 2000.
Psychologist Dr Sid Srna said Collingwood "scored very highly on the dangerousness scale" and "presents a constant danger to the community."
He added: "It is likely that his dangerousness is to increase with time and the crimes to become gradually more serious."
Collingwood faced 26 charges and was jailed for 13 years and six months for the offences in Western Australia but served only nine years before his release in April 2010.
He was not given an indefinite sentence, or even a non-parole period, as it was deemed he could undertake counselling and psychiatric treatment in prison, which he had previously refused to do.
As Collingwood left prison, he was arrested and extradited to Victoria for breaching parole here on October 4, 1996.
He was ordered to serve the remaining time on the previous sentence of two years, three months and 19 days and freed on August 9 last year with the condition he wore a monitoring bracelet and had a curfew.
But just five months later, Collingwood savagely raped Ms H in his Kangaroo Flat unit.
The pair met on an online dating site, with Ms H savagely attacked the first time they met in person.
Judge Richard Maidment, sentencing Collingwood, said the ordeal was "frightening and aggressive."
"Your victim has suffered great trauma ... she will continue to suffer profoundly, emotionally, psychiatrically.
"I cannot look upon your prospects of rehabilitation at this stage as anything other than poor."
But Collingwood was amazingly given a minimum sentence of just 10 years.
"I'm the one living with a life sentence, while he could be free again aged 56," Ms H said. "I have lost everything I believe in. I have lost my independence. I have no control over my life. I'm on edge constantly and have nightmares when I do finally get to sleep. I have felt ashamed and embarrassed and contemplated suicide, but now I'm ready to stand up for myself."
Judge Maidment said he did not impose a "disproportionately high sentence" because it is thought, again, Collingwood could be rehabilitated in prison.
"He will be back on the street and his next victim will be a dead victim," Ms H said.
On Friday the Sunday Herald Sun had to overturn a suppression order granting Collingwood anonymity.
Judge Meryl Sexton, who made the order in July last year, said it was in place to reduce the chance of Collingwood re-offending. Corrections Minister Edward O'Donohue defended the use of supervision orders.
"I extend my sympathies to the victim in this case. It is understandable that she is seeking answers," Mr O'Donohue said.
"These are the toughest possible sanctions available to the government in monitoring offenders who have already done their time." Ms H said that was not good enough.
"He raped me while wearing the tag and at his home before the curfew. If he had been locked up, I wouldn't have been a victim. If they let him out again, they are letting him free to rape or kill another innocent victim. It's as simple as that."

Man, under state government supervision, violently rapes woman

A serious sex offender sent back to jail this week was under a state government supervision order and wearing an electronic ankle bracelet when he held a knife to his latest victim and violently raped her.
Gary Collingwood was under an order which monitors criminals who have completed their sentences but are still considered a risk to the community.
The Department of Justice can apply to the court for supervision orders and ask for conditions.
This includes curfews, electronic monitoring devices, alcohol and drug bans and exclusions from certain areas if a person remains a threat.
But Collingwood’s victim has demanded to know why a person with a history of violent and sexual crimes, dating back to 1984, was allowed to walk free from a Western Australian jail in August last year.
She believes a person deemed dangerous enough to be monitored should never be released into the community.
Sarah (not her real name) was raped in January after meeting Collingwood online two months earlier.
He held a knife to Sarah’s face, tied electrical tape around her hands and legs and stuffed her mouth with a stocking while raping her.
She believes that based on his history and poor chance of rehabilitation, Collingwood should never have been set free – or given access to the internet.
She said this allowed him to prey on innocent women.
“This rapist was out (of prison) in August and raped me in January, he had me targeted from November,’’ she said. “He will be out when he is 57 or 60, and he will do it again.
“His only punishment is he can’t walk out of a gate now for 13 years. I’m punished for life.
“The sentence is almost the same as the last time he did it. Where’s the justice in that?”
Corrections Minister Edward O’Donohue said the government was limited in how it could supervise those who had served sentences imposed by the courts.
“Supervision orders let us go as far as we can in supervising offenders who have done their time without breaching the constitution,’’ he said. “I have enormous sympathy for the victim in this case.
“But we are constitutionally limited in what we can do to restrict people who have already served the sentence the court has given them.”
