Piano teacher jailed for systematic sex abuse

A Sydney music teacher who subjected three of his young male students to systematic sexual abuse over many years has been sentenced to at least 12 years in jail.
In handing down the sentence, the judge described Neal Richard Winter 's criminality as "enormous".
Winter was found guilty of sexually abusing three boys over a decade from 1992.
One victim was aged 12 when the abuse began, while the other two were 14.
In the New South Wales District Court, judge Peter Berman said Winter had shown no remorse whatsoever for his crimes and had made it clear he did not care about the harm he had caused his victims.
He said Winter had ingratiated himself with the boy's families through the local church.
He sentenced Winter to a maximum 16 years in jail, with a non-parole period of 12 years.
Outside the court, the mother of one victim said she was disappointed with the sentence.
Winter will be aged around 60 when due for release.

Piano teacher molested boy after classes, court hears

The boy's first recollection of his piano teacher's alleged sexual abuse was when classes were switched to a Saturday and his mother no longer waited because Neal Richard Winter would drive his pupil home.
Winter massaged the boy on the back and neck as he lay face down on the couch, eventually masturbating him, a court heard.
They would regularly spend the day together on those Saturdays in 1992 and the boy developed a "relationship" with his teacher, sometimes even staying overnight, he told the NSW District Court.
Winter, whom the boy's mother had met at the University of Western Sydney, has pleaded not guilty to 32 charges of child sex abuse involving three pupils he taught privately at his various Sydney homes.
The man, now 28, was the first to give evidence. He told the court how Winter, 48, took him to the movies, to play squash, and of the time they slept in his bed after seeing Godspell at the Opera House. He was "very tired" after the show and did not respond when Winter kissed him.
"He was telling me like words to the effect of that it's a two-sided relationship - I need to make an effort," he told the court. "I said like in a sense I apologised for what I was doing and also I didn't - I told him that it wasn't my intention to be rude."
They then engaged in mutual masturbation, he said. Winter also visited him when he was sick in bed and performed sexual acts with him while his mother was home, he said.
His teacher also took him on a trip to Canberra, where they shared a bed at the house of a friend of Winter. On the way back to Sydney they masturbated each other while he drove, he said.
The second complainant to give evidence said he met Winter at an Anglican Church camp at Gilbulla, near Campbelltown, in March, 1993. Winter had offered the boy, then 12, piano lessons in exchange for mowing his lawn.
From the first lesson the two had a sexual encounter that began with massaging, he said. It began with mutual masturbation but developed into homosexual intercourse, the court heard.
Winter would pick him up after school and take him to games arcades in Bankstown with other boys, the boy said.
The trial continues.
