Seven years' jail for raping youth

A Melbourne man who robbed, bashed and raped 19-year-old youth at knifepoint has been jailed for 7- years.
The Victorian County Court was told Michael Scott Wald, 22, held a knife to the teenager's throat as he raped him twice over four hours.
Wald, formerly of Seaford, ambushed his victim as he walked home from a night out in bayside Frankston in March last year, the court was told.
He stole the younger man's mobile phone and assaulted him, bashing his head into a tree, street poles and a shop window before taking him to a park and raping him.
Wald then forced the man to call his girlfriend, trying to get him to entice her to come out so the defendant could watch the pair have sex.
The court was told Wald then apologised to his victim and gave him $20 for a taxi home.
Wald told the 19-year-old he wished he had never met him and that he had not deserved the attack.
He said: "I get like this when I'm drunk".
Judge John Barnett said the attack was "cruelly committed and worthy of severe punishment".
Wald - who was 21 at the time of the offences - earlier pleaded guilty to two counts of rape and one count each of armed robbery, false imprisonment and assault.
He was sentenced to a jail term of seven years and six months with a non-parole period of five years and six months.

Man jailed for rape at knife-point

A 22-year-old man has been jailed in Victoria for bashing and raping a man at Frankston in the state's south in March last year.
Michael Scott Wald of Seaford was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years' jail after pleading guilty to the attack on a 19-year-old man.
The County Court heard Wald approached the victim with a knife, stole his mobile phone and rammed his head into poles and a shop window.
He then raped him twice at knife-point.
In sentencing, Judge Barnett acknowledged that Wald had shown remorse, had limited intellectual abilities and had been under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
But he said the crimes were cruel and worthy of severe punishment.
Outside court, the victim said he was disappointed by the sentence.
Wald will be eligible for parole in four-and-a-half years.

Drug rapist jailed

A chronic ice user who kidnapped and assaulted a teenager before raping him at knifepoint, will spend at least 5 1/2 years behind bars.
Michael Scott Wald, 22, was fuelled by a volatile mixture of alcohol and the dangerous methamphetamine when he abducted his male victim from Frankston in March last year and raped him twice beside a railway track.
Wald, of Seaford, pleaded guilty to rape, armed robbery, false imprisonment and intentionally causing injury.
The County Court heard Wald had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, and was of low intelligence after a motorcycle crash left him with a brain injury.
Judge John Barnett said Wald, who had convictions for more than 100 offences including theft, armed robbery and assault, had failed to heed previous court warnings over his substance abuse.
The court was told Wald sneaked up behind his teenage victim in Frankston's business district, put a knife to his neck and demanded his mobile phone.
When he tried to flee, Wald marched him through the streets, smashing his head against walls, fire hydrants and windows. He then raped him at knifepoint, telling him he "would not be going home tonight".
When the assault was over, Wald said "I get like this when I'm drunk", and apologised, telling the victim he didn't deserve the attack, the court heard.
Judge Barnett said Wald had shown only limited remorse and his cruel actions had had a devastating effect on the teen: "The community expects such behaviour to be strongly denounced."
He sentenced Wald to 7 1/2 years' jail with a non-parole period of 5 1/2 years, and ordered he be placed on the serious sex offenders registry.
