Sex Fiend Too Close
A convicted sex offender is living metres from a primary school in suburban
Melbourne - with the consent of the State Government.
Robin James Sadedin,
39, was last month found guilty of possessing more than
5000 pornographic images of children.
Almost all were of naked pre-pubescent schoolgirls.
Parents of children at Sherbourne Primary are furious authorities and the school's
hierarchy failed to tell them Sadedin lived so close.
Sadedin, a former child protection worker for the Department of Human Services, left
the government post in disgrace when the child porn was found on his home computer and digital camera.
It contained explicit images of school-aged girls exposing their genitalia.
Briar Hill mother Samantha Dukes said she was "disgusted and appalled" Sadedin
was allowed so close to the school.
"What is to say he won't start taking pictures of our children?" she said. "How can
someone like that live so close to a school?"
Sadedin, who was living near a kindergarten when he was arrested, then pleaded guilty
to knowingly possessing child pornography and producing child pornography.
He was sentenced to six months' jail, suspended for a year, and placed on a two-year community-based order.
Sadedin yesterday defended his right to live near a school.
"The community has absolutely nothing to fear from me living here," he said.
Sadedin described his child porn actions as a "bad choice" and said he was
undergoing psychiatric treatment.
A Department of Justice spokeswoman confirmed the Government knew where Sadedin was
living. She said he was required to regularly report to police.
