PUBLIC AWARENESS = PREVENTION


In Australia the general Public (YOU) are NOT provided with access to Sex Offender Registries by the Federal or State government/s..
Most of you would agree with us that jail is the best place for convicted sex offenders..the FACT is that many live in
unsuspecting communities including near schools/ playgrounds etc..

Its no secret that sex offenders especially paedophiles are likely to re/offend so Public AWARENESS is very IMPORTANT to PREVENTION ??




THE MAKO/Files Online are a FREE PUBLIC SERVICE

The 'MAKO/Files' Online and MAKO/Files Online WTC are Australia's 1st " FREE PUBLIC" Paedophile/Sex offender registries, and collectively list/ name over 2000 offenders nationwide, with more offenders being added on a regular basis.. 98+% of offenders listed in the MAKO/Files Online and MAKO/Files Online- (WTC) have been convicted by a court of law.
(The MAKO/Files Online also lists Child Killers and individuals convicted of other forms of child abuse/NOT only child sexual abuse)

A typical Online MAKO/File (offenders file) may include the offenders name,age(2008),photo where possible,occupation,offence-s committed,sentence received by the court, and last known location-
(last known location is taken from time of offenders offence/sentence,unless otherwise stated).

AWARENESS = PREVENTION..
Not only can the MAKO/Files online be used by the Australian PUBLIC to better protect themselves and their CHILDREN/ families from proven sex offenders, they have many other benefits, including..

DETERRING some offenders = yet another form of prevention..

+ being a useful resource for Australian and overseas Companies-businesses-organisations to assist with screening potential employees/volunteers etc..
+ a useful resource for media outlets/journalists/Investigators/researchers etc..
+ a useful method of constantly lobbying Australian Government/s and politicians to do more to protect the PUBLIC from sexual predators.
"Tougher sentencing for offenders,greater government funding for prevention/better victim assistance and public sex offender registries would be a good foundation to work from."

"PLEASE NOTE - This is NOT a complete list of Australian convicted sex offenders"..

"Salesian priest jailed for less than a year over sex abuse of student" (22-8-2011)
A Salesian priest who sexually abused a pupil at a Sunbury Catholic boarding school will serve just nine months in jail. Judge Tim Wood told Michael Aulsebrook, 55, today he had committed a serious breach of trust when he groomed and then abused a 12-year-old boy at Rupertswood Salesian College in 1983. In his sentence the judge revealed that in 1993 a complaint of the sex abuse of another child was made against Aulsebrook and he received counselling from his order but no criminal prosecution. The Salesians then appointed Aulsebrook to the post of principal of St Mark's College in Port Pirie, South Australia, a post he held for nine years. Judge Wood said when the victim went to Rupertswood his mother introduced him to Brother Michael, a decision that later made her feel guilty. Aulsebrook groomed the boy by buying him treats from the tuck shop and over the next seven months took him into his room next to the dorm and sexually abused him. He would make the victim sit on his knee, put his hands down his pants and fondle his penis and testicles and lay on top of him on the bed. Judge Wood said the 12-year-old knew nothing about sex and was confused at the molestation. Aulsebrook pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent assault and two of the charges were representative of a number of incidents. In his County Court sentence Judge Wood said Aulsebrook told the boy "It's okay, it's a secret'' and "don't worry''. Aulsebrook remained a friends with his victim's family, attended his wedding and the funeral of his brother. The judge said the victim had a nervous breakdown in 2000 and said he had been molested but his family did not believe him at first. Judge Wood said Aulsebrook was remorseful and felt a deep sense of shame at his “flawed morals”. He jailed him for a total of two years but suspended 15 months of the sentence for two years.

"Pedophile priest Michael Glennon dies" (1-1-2014)
Notorious pedophile Catholic priest Michael Charles Glennon has died in prison. Corrections Victoria spokesman Mario Xuereb confirmed on Wednesday that Glennon, 69, died overnight of natural causes at the Hopkins Correctional Centre in Ararat. Glennon was serving a 14-and-a-half year sentence with a 10-year minimum for child sex offences. In 2003, a court heard that he faced 30 charges for molestation against four victims between 1983 and 1991. Most of the offences were committed at youth camps held at Karaglen, a rural property at Lancefield, north of Melbourne, which Glennon helped operate. The former priest was convicted of sexually abusing 15 children between 1974 and 1991, mostly at Karaglen. Broken Rites, victim support group researcher, Dr Bernard Barrett said the Glennon case is of Australia-wide significance. "Until Glennon was first jailed in 1978, abusive priests seemed to be immune from prosecution," Mr Barrett said. He said Glennon's 1978 jailing prompted his victims and other victims of clergy abuse to come forward. "The children in Glennon's court cases were not his only victims, they were merely those who eventually spoke to the police," Mr Barrett said. "The world will never know exactly how many children Father Glennon abused. Even Glennon himself would have lost count of the real number." Taking to Twitter, broadcaster Derryn Hinch tweeted: "Good News to start 2014. Just heard evil paedophile priest Michael Glennon is dead. Died where he belonged: in jail. Victims rejoice." Hinch spent 12 days in jail in 1987 and was fined $15,000 for contempt of court after he revealed Glennon's 1978 sex conviction while a trial was pending.

"Priests prepare to be called up for inquiry" (18-11-2012)
The church organisation that ran Burnie's Marist Regional College when students were sexually abused is preparing to be called before the royal commission, the head of the Marist Fathers has said. "I'm expecting the royal commission to be held all over Australia, and that when the Tasmanian part of it is held there will be a requirement for the Marist Fathers to participate," Marist provincial Paul Cooney said. "Certainly, we will participate in any way that we are asked to." Two Marist priests who taught at the school around the 1970s were charged in 2004 with sexually abusing students in their rooms at the school. Both men were convicted and have served time in jail. In 2008, unordained trainee priest Paul Ronald Goldsmith, a volunteer sports coach at the college in the 1970s, was convicted of molesting about 20 boys.

Offence/Other: Edward Mamo - Catholic brother/ Former bus driver and hockey coach at Hamilton’s Monivae College in regional Victoria - Pleaded guilty to 7 charges of unlawful and indecent assault with a child under 16.. He was in his 30s when he abused his young victims (boarders/students) at the college between 1976 and 1988.

Molester motivated by discipline, court told (20-2-2013)
A catholic brother who molested young boarders at a regional Victorian college has told a court he was motivated by a need to discipline them. Edward Mamo, 68, was not a teacher at Hamilton’s Monivae College, but as a bus driver and hockey coach had direct involvement with students. The County Court heard today that almost all of Mamo’s victims were being disciplined at the time they were molested. In one incident Mamo had ordered a young student to the college laundry for punishment and, after belting him with a strap, fondled his genitals. On another occasion a student who had “been giving cheek” during a school trip was held back on the bus by Mamo and molested. Mamo has pleaded guilty to seven charges of unlawful and indecent assault with a child under 16. He was in his 30s when he abused his young victims between 1976 and 1988. Defence counsel Peta Murphy, for Mamo, said her client didn’t dispute the sexual element of the offending. “But his motivation, in his mind at the time, was discipline,” Ms Murphy said. The claim was rejected by Judge Julian Leckie, who said Mamo had used discipline “as a guide to then indulge a sexual interest he had”. “He was indulging some perverted sexual abuse on his part,” he said. Judge Leckie said their might have been a “minor infraction” by Mamo’s young victims but said there was no evidence they had ever done anything “major”. “There may have been some justification for punishing the student. He then used that opportunity to indulge (his) sexual interest by making the boy take his pants down, his underpants down, bending him over and then strapping him.” Crown prosecutor Kieran Gilligan called for a jail term of up to four years because of Mamo’s “gross breach of trust (and) cynical exploitation of (his victims) for his sexual gratification”. “They were students at the college, and soft targets in that respect,” he said. Mamo was released on bail and will be sentenced on Friday.

Offence/Other: Matthew David O'Meara - Four counts of possessing child pornography.. O'Meara was the chaplain of the elite Anglican girl's college, "Mount Lawley's Perth College", after relocating from Melbourne in January 2010.

"Former Perth College chaplain Matthew David O'Meara jailed for 15 months" (21-3-2013)
A former Perth College chaplain has been sentenced to 15 months imprisonment after being found guilty of possessing child pornography. A District Court jury found Matthew David O’Meara guilty on Monday, following his three week trial over four counts of possessing child pornography after USBs were found containing photos and videos of young girls on them at Perth College in August 2010. In sentencing, Judge Ronald Birmingham said O'Meara's offending "struck at the very heart of the trust" imposed on him by Perth College when they employed him as head chaplain at the all-girls school. "They were entitled to expect more from you," he said. Almost 450 images were found in O'Meara's possession on the two thumb drives and deleted from his home computer, including images and movies of young girls performing sexual acts. Judge Birmingham said the evidence left no doubt O'Meara "had a tendency or a sexual interest in young girls." He said O'Meara had hid behind a mask to friends and family and insistence that others were responsible for the images on the thumb drives showed he had "no remorse." "That you fall from such a height is largely the result of a self-inflicted wound," he said. Despite the guilty verdict, O'Meara maintains his innocence and outside court his lawyers said he would be considering an appeal against the conviction. Defence counsel Laurie Levy told Judge Birmingham during his submissions that in the two years and seven months since his client was charged, O'Meara had become "professionally and financially ruined." He also said O'Meara's job prospects were non-existent because for more than 14 years he had worked as a teacher and a chaplain. Th Anglican Church has revoked his pastoral licence. This evening his wife Karina, parents and sister expressed their ongoing support for him. "We all believe that he has suffered a terrible injustice, a brutal injustice and we have to do what we can to regroup," Mrs O'Meara told reporters outside court. O'Meara was sentenced to six months imprisonment for counts one and four and nine months for counts two and three. However Judge Birmingham said count two was to be the head sentence, with counts one and three to be served concurrently and count four to be served accumulative, totalling 15 months. O'Meara will be eligible for parole after seven and a half months.

"Jail term for priest" (12-5-2011)
Former Mackay priest Kevin Phillips has been sentenced to 15 months' jail after he pleaded guilty to sex offences against a 16-year-old boy at a NSW boarding school in 1990. Phillips was sentenced on April 21 this year in the NSW District Court; however, the Daily Mercury can now reveal his identity after a suppression order preventing its release was lifted. Judge Penelope Hock had placed a non-publication order in respect to naming Phillips, but ordered it to be lifted at the conclusion of the trial of Peter Dwyer, a former headmaster at the same boarding school. On Monday, Dwyer was cleared of charges relating to alleged assaults against students at St Stanislaus College in Bathurst between 1977 and 1992. Dwyer had pleaded not guilty to 10 offences, including indecent assault and having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16. Phillips was a member of the Vincentian community at St Stanislaus Catholic College in 1990 as well as a part-time teacher and sports coach. He was practising as a priest in Mackay when the charges against him were laid. He was a priest at four Mackay district Catholic churches including St Patrick's, St Mary's, St Francis Xavier and St Michael's in Sarina. He also served as a priest in Walkerston. On December 3 last year in the NSW District Court, Phillips pleaded guilty to four counts of gross indecency with the boy between May and December 1990. The agreed facts were that Phillips was assigned in April 1990 to be the boy's mentor for evening prayer sessions. The abuse began when Phillips allowed the boy and a friend to drink whisky in his room. He exposed himself and performed a sexual act in the presence of the boys. On an evening that May, the boy went to Phillips' room where he read from a sex eduction book and asked the boy about his sexual experience. “Thereafter, the complainant visited the offender's room several times each week,” the facts to the court stated. In an incident in June, the priest and boy conducted sexual acts on each other. On the first three counts of gross indecency, Phillips was sentenced to a concurrent term of imprisonment of nine months, ending on January 20, 2012. Judge Hock said no non-parole periods were set as it would serve no useful purpose. On the final charge, Phillips was sentenced to nine months imprisonment beginning on October 21 and ending on July 20, 2012 with a non-parole period of three months. Upon his release, Phillips can return to Queensland if he chooses after Ms Hock ordered that his parole not be subject to supervision.

Offence/Other: Terrence Melville Pidoto - Catholic Priest/ Scouts (Former Regional Chaplain)..11 charges including rape and indecently assaulting a child under 16.

"Pedophile priest Terrence Melville Pidoto refused appeal request" (27-6-2009)
A priest jailed for more than seven years for raping and sexually abusing four boys has been refused leave to appeal his convictions. A Victorian County Court jury in 2007 found Catholic priest Terrence Melville Pidoto guilty of 11 charges including rape and indecently assaulting a child under 16. He was jailed later that year for seven years and three months, and ordered to serve a minimum of five years before being eligible for parole. Today, the Court of Appeal refused him leave to appeal his convictions. His lawyers had argued the judge made errors during his trial. But Justices Peter Buchanan, Frank Vincent and Julie Dodds-Streeton said the trial judge had acted appropriately. “We are far from persuaded that any of the verdicts could be regarded as unreasonable,'' they said in their judgment. Pidoto was ordained in 1971 aged 26 and began his sordid sex activity just a year later, the jury heard during his trial. They heard he took one 14-year-old boy to the Corpus Christi seminary, in Melbourne's east, where he raped and abused him on several occasions between 1972 and 1973. Assaults on two 15-year-old boys occurred at St Clare's Catholic parish in Box Hill in 1978 and 1979, while Pidoto was an assistant parish priest.
A 12-year-old boy became Pidoto's fourth victim after the priest officiated at the boy's sister's wedding. Pidoto had denied all charges.

M/F

Age: 69 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced to 9 yrs jail - 5 yrs non parole/ will be eligible for parole in November 2015..Full sentence to expire on November 29, 2019.

Offence/Other: Brian Spillane - Former Catholic priest - Convicted of 8 charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16, and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more.. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales.

"Priest 'a violent bully and coward'" (20-4-2012)
The former priest Brian Spillane has been sentenced to nine years' imprisonment for a series of sexual assaults on young girls - attacks described as "serious, planned and callous" by Judge Michael Finnane of the NSW District Court. "The offender used his position as a priest to gain access to the homes in which each of his victims lived," said the judge. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held." The assaults began in the late 1970s when Spillane was on the staff of St Stanislaus College, a boys' boarding school in Bathurst. They continued when he became a parish priest in Sydney. He later returned to St Stanislaus as school chaplain. Spillane, 69, continues to deny all the charges that have been brought against him, not only those involving these young girls but some 100 charges he has yet to face relating to assaults on boys at the school. A heavy-set redhead, Spillane trained for the priesthood in the Vincentian Order and was sent to teach at St Stanislaus in the late 1960s. At his trial he described himself as a modern priest - joyful and enthusiastic, a hugger and kisser, a man at ease with families and their children. In the late 1970s, he ingratiated himself into a family with boys at the school and abused their sister, then aged 11. "This was the conduct of a violent bully and coward, done without regard to the effect it would have on the young girl," Judge Finnane said at sentencing. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest, and was a major breach of trust." The Vincentians posted Spillane to Sydney in the late 1970s and for a time he was acting parish priest at St Anthony's Marsfield. There he befriended another devout Catholic family and, under the guise of hearing their daughters' bedtime prayers, abused both for more than a year. The judge called this: "Predatory and a major abuse of trust." One of those victims, known as Miss M, told the court of the devastating impact on her life of Spillane's abuse: of guilt, panic, mistrust, anger, depression, estrangement, drinking, drugs, loss of interest in study and, now, fearfulness for her daughter. She said: "It changed my fate and all that I wanted to be." In those years in Sydney, Spillane also assaulted and wrote love letters to a 16-year-old student at a western suburbs Catholic school. Judge Finnane called the assault "predatory and heartless" and the letters "maudlin, full of false piety and completely inappropriate". Spillane left the priesthood in 2004 and a son was born after his marriage that year. The first complaints about him were made to Bathurst police three years later. He was charged in 2008 and convicted by a District Court jury in 2010. Sentencing was delayed until yesterday by the defence solicitor Greg Walsh attempting to have his old friend Judge Finnane disqualify himself from this and any future proceedings involving Spillane. Mr Walsh claimed that after the swearing-in of a new District Court judge in March last year, Judge Finnane remarked over a cup of tea that paedophiles were "all guilty" and "should be put on an island and starved to death". Judge Finnane denied saying those words and declined to disqualify himself. The dispute reached the NSW Court of Appeal in November and the decision upholding the judge's right to sit was delivered a fortnight ago. The court found the words, if uttered, might have been incautious but couldn't be taken seriously and would not be regarded by a fair-minded bystander as prejudging the former priest's position. Lawyers estimate about $700,000 has been spent on the former priest's defence so far. But who is footing that bill is a mystery. A spokeswoman for the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal Pell, says it is not the church. The Vincentian Order has refused to take the Herald's calls. At Spillane's sentencing, Judge Finnane spoke of receiving glowing testimonials to his good character. But, he added, "it has also to be said that he used his eminence in the community and his role as a priest to gain access to his victims and to carry out sexual offences on them." Miss M sobbed with relief when the judge sent her abuser to prison for nine years with a non-parole period of five.

"Priest jailed 5 years for sex assaults on young girls" (19-4-2012)
A former Catholic priest has been jailed for at least five years for sexually abusing girls as young as eight. Brian Spillane, 69, was convicted today of eight charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16 and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales. In sentencing Spillane, Judge Michael Finnane called each assault "serious, planned and callous". He said Spillane's position as a priest and his "standing in the community" allowed him to gain access to the homes of his victims, many of whom came from devout Catholic families. Some of the offences occurred when Spillane was alone with his victims in their bedrooms for night-time prayers. One happened in a car after he'd said mass at a memorial service. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held," Judge Finnane told Sydney's Downing Centre District Court. "The victims in this trial were all girls to whom he got access when he was conducting parish missions or ... when he was visiting a country town. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest and was a major breach of trust." The judge said Spillane had shown no remorse and no contrition for his offending "which means that there can be little hope of rehabilitation". But he noted Spillane's age and said in all other respects the former priest had lived a "blameless life". Taking into account time already served, Spillane will be eligible for parole in November 2015. His sentence will expire on November 29, 2019.

"Royal commission into child sexual abuse: Paedophile offered to organise funeral for victim who committed suicide" (16-6-2014)
A serial paedophile offered to organise the funeral for one of his victims after the man committed suicide, a child sex abuse royal commission has heard. In 1989, the man known as ADO killed himself after claiming he had been sexually abused by Marist Brother Gregory Sutton in the 1970s. ADO was about nine years old at the time of the abuse and was attending a school in north Queensland. Principal Brother John Holdsworth told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that ADO's father contacted him shortly after the suicide. He said the father wanted to get in touch with Brother Sutton about the allegations. "I was quite shocked because Brother Sutton had offered to organise the funeral," Brother Holdsworth told the hearing in Canberra. Read more.

A former Hunter Valley church worker has had his sentence doubled for sexually abusing 20 boys.

Age: 69 yrs old (2012)
Sentence: Sentenced to 9 yrs jail - 5 yrs non parole/ will be eligible for parole in November 2015..full sentence to expire on November 29, 2019.

Offence/Other: Brian Spillane/ Former Catholic priest - Convicted of 8 charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16, and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more.. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales.

"Priest 'a violent bully and coward'" (20-4-2012)
The former priest Brian Spillane has been sentenced to nine years' imprisonment for a series of sexual assaults on young girls - attacks described as "serious, planned and callous" by Judge Michael Finnane of the NSW District Court. "The offender used his position as a priest to gain access to the homes in which each of his victims lived," said the judge. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held." The assaults began in the late 1970s when Spillane was on the staff of St Stanislaus College, a boys' boarding school in Bathurst. They continued when he became a parish priest in Sydney. He later returned to St Stanislaus as school chaplain. Spillane, 69, continues to deny all the charges that have been brought against him, not only those involving these young girls but some 100 charges he has yet to face relating to assaults on boys at the school. A heavy-set redhead, Spillane trained for the priesthood in the Vincentian Order and was sent to teach at St Stanislaus in the late 1960s. At his trial he described himself as a modern priest - joyful and enthusiastic, a hugger and kisser, a man at ease with families and their children. In the late 1970s, he ingratiated himself into a family with boys at the school and abused their sister, then aged 11. "This was the conduct of a violent bully and coward, done without regard to the effect it would have on the young girl," Judge Finnane said at sentencing. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest, and was a major breach of trust." The Vincentians posted Spillane to Sydney in the late 1970s and for a time he was acting parish priest at St Anthony's Marsfield. There he befriended another devout Catholic family and, under the guise of hearing their daughters' bedtime prayers, abused both for more than a year. The judge called this: "Predatory and a major abuse of trust." One of those victims, known as Miss M, told the court of the devastating impact on her life of Spillane's abuse: of guilt, panic, mistrust, anger, depression, estrangement, drinking, drugs, loss of interest in study and, now, fearfulness for her daughter. She said: "It changed my fate and all that I wanted to be." In those years in Sydney, Spillane also assaulted and wrote love letters to a 16-year-old student at a western suburbs Catholic school. Judge Finnane called the assault "predatory and heartless" and the letters "maudlin, full of false piety and completely inappropriate". Spillane left the priesthood in 2004 and a son was born after his marriage that year. The first complaints about him were made to Bathurst police three years later. He was charged in 2008 and convicted by a District Court jury in 2010. Sentencing was delayed until yesterday by the defence solicitor Greg Walsh attempting to have his old friend Judge Finnane disqualify himself from this and any future proceedings involving Spillane. Mr Walsh claimed that after the swearing-in of a new District Court judge in March last year, Judge Finnane remarked over a cup of tea that paedophiles were "all guilty" and "should be put on an island and starved to death". Judge Finnane denied saying those words and declined to disqualify himself. The dispute reached the NSW Court of Appeal in November and the decision upholding the judge's right to sit was delivered a fortnight ago. The court found the words, if uttered, might have been incautious but couldn't be taken seriously and would not be regarded by a fair-minded bystander as prejudging the former priest's position. Lawyers estimate about $700,000 has been spent on the former priest's defence so far. But who is footing that bill is a mystery. A spokeswoman for the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal Pell, says it is not the church. The Vincentian Order has refused to take the Herald's calls. At Spillane's sentencing, Judge Finnane spoke of receiving glowing testimonials to his good character. But, he added, "it has also to be said that he used his eminence in the community and his role as a priest to gain access to his victims and to carry out sexual offences on them." Miss M sobbed with relief when the judge sent her abuser to prison for nine years with a non-parole period of five.

"Priest jailed 5 years for sex assaults on young girls" (19-4-2012)
A former Catholic priest has been jailed for at least five years for sexually abusing girls as young as eight. Brian Spillane, 69, was convicted today of eight charges of indecent assault on a female younger than 16 and one count of indecently assaulting a female aged 16 years or more. The charges relate to abuses during the 1970s and 1980s when Spillane was a priest working in both Sydney and country areas of New South Wales. In sentencing Spillane, Judge Michael Finnane called each assault "serious, planned and callous". He said Spillane's position as a priest and his "standing in the community" allowed him to gain access to the homes of his victims, many of whom came from devout Catholic families. Some of the offences occurred when Spillane was alone with his victims in their bedrooms for night-time prayers. One happened in a car after he'd said mass at a memorial service. "He was very trusted and the parents of each of the victims readily gave him access to their daughters because of that trust and the esteem in which he was held," Judge Finnane told Sydney's Downing Centre District Court. "The victims in this trial were all girls to whom he got access when he was conducting parish missions or ... when he was visiting a country town. "It was sexual abuse carried out by a trusted priest and was a major breach of trust." The judge said Spillane had shown no remorse and no contrition for his offending "which means that there can be little hope of rehabilitation". But he noted Spillane's age and said in all other respects the former priest had lived a "blameless life". Taking into account time already served, Spillane will be eligible for parole in November 2015. His sentence will expire on November 29, 2019.

"Royal commission into child sexual abuse: Paedophile offered to organise funeral for victim who committed suicide" (16-6-2014)
A serial paedophile offered to organise the funeral for one of his victims after the man committed suicide, a child sex abuse royal commission has heard. In 1989, the man known as ADO killed himself after claiming he had been sexually abused by Marist Brother Gregory Sutton in the 1970s. ADO was about nine years old at the time of the abuse and was attending a school in north Queensland. Principal Brother John Holdsworth told the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that ADO's father contacted him shortly after the suicide. He said the father wanted to get in touch with Brother Sutton about the allegations. "I was quite shocked because Brother Sutton had offered to organise the funeral," Brother Holdsworth told the hearing in Canberra. Read more.

"Jail term for priest" (12-5-2011)
Former Mackay priest Kevin Phillips has been sentenced to 15 months' jail after he pleaded guilty to sex offences against a 16-year-old boy at a NSW boarding school in 1990. Phillips was sentenced on April 21 this year in the NSW District Court; however, the Daily Mercury can now reveal his identity after a suppression order preventing its release was lifted. Judge Penelope Hock had placed a non-publication order in respect to naming Phillips, but ordered it to be lifted at the conclusion of the trial of Peter Dwyer, a former headmaster at the same boarding school. On Monday, Dwyer was cleared of charges relating to alleged assaults against students at St Stanislaus College in Bathurst between 1977 and 1992. Dwyer had pleaded not guilty to 10 offences, including indecent assault and having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16. Phillips was a member of the Vincentian community at St Stanislaus Catholic College in 1990 as well as a part-time teacher and sports coach. He was practising as a priest in Mackay when the charges against him were laid. He was a priest at four Mackay district Catholic churches including St Patrick's, St Mary's, St Francis Xavier and St Michael's in Sarina. He also served as a priest in Walkerston. On December 3 last year in the NSW District Court, Phillips pleaded guilty to four counts of gross indecency with the boy between May and December 1990. The agreed facts were that Phillips was assigned in April 1990 to be the boy's mentor for evening prayer sessions. The abuse began when Phillips allowed the boy and a friend to drink whisky in his room. He exposed himself and performed a sexual act in the presence of the boys. On an evening that May, the boy went to Phillips' room where he read from a sex eduction book and asked the boy about his sexual experience. “Thereafter, the complainant visited the offender's room several times each week,” the facts to the court stated. In an incident in June, the priest and boy conducted sexual acts on each other. On the first three counts of gross indecency, Phillips was sentenced to a concurrent term of imprisonment of nine months, ending on January 20, 2012. Judge Hock said no non-parole periods were set as it would serve no useful purpose. On the final charge, Phillips was sentenced to nine months imprisonment beginning on October 21 and ending on July 20, 2012 with a non-parole period of three months. Upon his release, Phillips can return to Queensland if he chooses after Ms Hock ordered that his parole not be subject to supervision.

"Salesian priest jailed for less than a year over sex abuse of student" (22-8-2011)
A Salesian priest who sexually abused a pupil at a Sunbury Catholic boarding school will serve just nine months in jail. Judge Tim Wood told Michael Aulsebrook, 55, today he had committed a serious breach of trust when he groomed and then abused a 12-year-old boy at Rupertswood Salesian College in 1983. In his sentence the judge revealed that in 1993 a complaint of the sex abuse of another child was made against Aulsebrook and he received counselling from his order but no criminal prosecution. The Salesians then appointed Aulsebrook to the post of principal of St Mark's College in Port Pirie, South Australia, a post he held for nine years. Judge Wood said when the victim went to Rupertswood his mother introduced him to Brother Michael, a decision that later made her feel guilty. Aulsebrook groomed the boy by buying him treats from the tuck shop and over the next seven months took him into his room next to the dorm and sexually abused him. He would make the victim sit on his knee, put his hands down his pants and fondle his penis and testicles and lay on top of him on the bed. Judge Wood said the 12-year-old knew nothing about sex and was confused at the molestation. Aulsebrook pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent assault and two of the charges were representative of a number of incidents. In his County Court sentence Judge Wood said Aulsebrook told the boy "It's okay, it's a secret'' and "don't worry''. Aulsebrook remained a friends with his victim's family, attended his wedding and the funeral of his brother. The judge said the victim had a nervous breakdown in 2000 and said he had been molested but his family did not believe him at first. Judge Wood said Aulsebrook was remorseful and felt a deep sense of shame at his “flawed morals”. He jailed him for a total of two years but suspended 15 months of the sentence for two years.

"Pedophile priest Michael Glennon dies" (1-1-2014)
Notorious pedophile Catholic priest Michael Charles Glennon has died in prison. Corrections Victoria spokesman Mario Xuereb confirmed on Wednesday that Glennon, 69, died overnight of natural causes at the Hopkins Correctional Centre in Ararat. Glennon was serving a 14-and-a-half year sentence with a 10-year minimum for child sex offences. In 2003, a court heard that he faced 30 charges for molestation against four victims between 1983 and 1991. Most of the offences were committed at youth camps held at Karaglen, a rural property at Lancefield, north of Melbourne, which Glennon helped operate. The former priest was convicted of sexually abusing 15 children between 1974 and 1991, mostly at Karaglen. Broken Rites, victim support group researcher, Dr Bernard Barrett said the Glennon case is of Australia-wide significance. "Until Glennon was first jailed in 1978, abusive priests seemed to be immune from prosecution," Mr Barrett said. He said Glennon's 1978 jailing prompted his victims and other victims of clergy abuse to come forward. "The children in Glennon's court cases were not his only victims, they were merely those who eventually spoke to the police," Mr Barrett said. "The world will never know exactly how many children Father Glennon abused. Even Glennon himself would have lost count of the real number." Taking to Twitter, broadcaster Derryn Hinch tweeted: "Good News to start 2014. Just heard evil paedophile priest Michael Glennon is dead. Died where he belonged: in jail. Victims rejoice." Hinch spent 12 days in jail in 1987 and was fined $15,000 for contempt of court after he revealed Glennon's 1978 sex conviction while a trial was pending.

Offence/Other: Edward Mamo - Catholic brother/ Former bus driver and hockey coach at Hamilton’s Monivae College in regional Victoria..pleaded guilty to 7 charges of unlawful and indecent assault with a child under 16.. He was in his 30s when he abused his young victims (boarders/students) at the college between 1976 and 1988.

Molester motivated by discipline, court told (20-2-2013)
A catholic brother who molested young boarders at a regional Victorian college has told a court he was motivated by a need to discipline them. Edward Mamo, 68, was not a teacher at Hamilton’s Monivae College, but as a bus driver and hockey coach had direct involvement with students. The County Court heard today that almost all of Mamo’s victims were being disciplined at the time they were molested. In one incident Mamo had ordered a young student to the college laundry for punishment and, after belting him with a strap, fondled his genitals. On another occasion a student who had “been giving cheek” during a school trip was held back on the bus by Mamo and molested. Mamo has pleaded guilty to seven charges of unlawful and indecent assault with a child under 16. He was in his 30s when he abused his young victims between 1976 and 1988. Defence counsel Peta Murphy, for Mamo, said her client didn’t dispute the sexual element of the offending. “But his motivation, in his mind at the time, was discipline,” Ms Murphy said. The claim was rejected by Judge Julian Leckie, who said Mamo had used discipline “as a guide to then indulge a sexual interest he had”. “He was indulging some perverted sexual abuse on his part,” he said. Judge Leckie said their might have been a “minor infraction” by Mamo’s young victims but said there was no evidence they had ever done anything “major”. “There may have been some justification for punishing the student. He then used that opportunity to indulge (his) sexual interest by making the boy take his pants down, his underpants down, bending him over and then strapping him.” Crown prosecutor Kieran Gilligan called for a jail term of up to four years because of Mamo’s “gross breach of trust (and) cynical exploitation of (his victims) for his sexual gratification”. “They were students at the college, and soft targets in that respect,” he said. Mamo was released on bail and will be sentenced on Friday.

"Pedophile priest Terrence Melville Pidoto refused appeal request" (27-6-2009)
A priest jailed for more than seven years for raping and sexually abusing four boys has been refused leave to appeal his convictions. A Victorian County Court jury in 2007 found Catholic priest Terrence Melville Pidoto guilty of 11 charges including rape and indecently assaulting a child under 16. He was jailed later that year for seven years and three months, and ordered to serve a minimum of five years before being eligible for parole. Today, the Court of Appeal refused him leave to appeal his convictions. His lawyers had argued the judge made errors during his trial. But Justices Peter Buchanan, Frank Vincent and Julie Dodds-Streeton said the trial judge had acted appropriately. “We are far from persuaded that any of the verdicts could be regarded as unreasonable,'' they said in their judgment. Pidoto was ordained in 1971 aged 26 and began his sordid sex activity just a year later, the jury heard during his trial. They heard he took one 14-year-old boy to the Corpus Christi seminary, in Melbourne's east, where he raped and abused him on several occasions between 1972 and 1973. Assaults on two 15-year-old boys occurred at St Clare's Catholic parish in Box Hill in 1978 and 1979, while Pidoto was an assistant parish priest.
A 12-year-old boy became Pidoto's fourth victim after the priest officiated at the boy's sister's wedding. Pidoto had denied all charges.

"Former Perth College chaplain Matthew David O'Meara jailed for 15 months" (21-3-2013)
A former Perth College chaplain has been sentenced to 15 months imprisonment after being found guilty of possessing child pornography. A District Court jury found Matthew David O’Meara guilty on Monday, following his three week trial over four counts of possessing child pornography after USBs were found containing photos and videos of young girls on them at Perth College in August 2010. In sentencing, Judge Ronald Birmingham said O'Meara's offending "struck at the very heart of the trust" imposed on him by Perth College when they employed him as head chaplain at the all-girls school. "They were entitled to expect more from you," he said. Almost 450 images were found in O'Meara's possession on the two thumb drives and deleted from his home computer, including images and movies of young girls performing sexual acts. Judge Birmingham said the evidence left no doubt O'Meara "had a tendency or a sexual interest in young girls." He said O'Meara had hid behind a mask to friends and family and insistence that others were responsible for the images on the thumb drives showed he had "no remorse." "That you fall from such a height is largely the result of a self-inflicted wound," he said. Despite the guilty verdict, O'Meara maintains his innocence and outside court his lawyers said he would be considering an appeal against the conviction. Defence counsel Laurie Levy told Judge Birmingham during his submissions that in the two years and seven months since his client was charged, O'Meara had become "professionally and financially ruined." He also said O'Meara's job prospects were non-existent because for more than 14 years he had worked as a teacher and a chaplain. Th Anglican Church has revoked his pastoral licence. This evening his wife Karina, parents and sister expressed their ongoing support for him. "We all believe that he has suffered a terrible injustice, a brutal injustice and we have to do what we can to regroup," Mrs O'Meara told reporters outside court. O'Meara was sentenced to six months imprisonment for counts one and four and nine months for counts two and three. However Judge Birmingham said count two was to be the head sentence, with counts one and three to be served concurrently and count four to be served accumulative, totalling 15 months. O'Meara will be eligible for parole after seven and a half months.
