Sex Predator Fights To Stay In New Zealand

AN Australian jailed for having sex with under-age girls says he deserves a second chance in New Zealand.
Tennis coach Robert Scott Antolik, 32, was served with a deportation order last week after a year in prison for buying sex from girls as young as 13.
Antolik was described by prosecutors as "nothing short of a predator of obviously troubled young women", but maintains he thought he was acting within the law.
He plans to appeal against the deportation order in an effort to stay in New Zealand.
"I love New Zealand and I thought maybe in the end it would be a nice place to settle down, but I want to travel as well," Antolik said.
"I would have to be a ratbag to want to reoffend, and I'm not going to reoffend in any way. I think everyone deserves a second chance, don't they?"
He admitted that during his 3 1/2 years in Christchurch he went looking to buy sex in the city, and eventually became "addicted".
He said he believed the girls he was buying sex from were 16, and he was oblivious to the requirement of the new Prostitution Reform Act.
"I didn't know they had to be 18,. I thought once they can have sex (at 16), they are legal."
He maintains he never had sex with the 13-year-old.
After Antolik's release, the Minister of Immigration and Immigration Service came under fire for failing to deport him before he could return to New Zealand society.
New Zealand First MP Ron Mark said New Zealand already had enough "homegrown crims" without importing them.
