Coach jailed for sex with teenager
A prominent Victorian basketball coach who pleaded guilty to sex offences against a teenage girl he coached was sentenced yesterday to a maximum of two years' jail.
Stephen William Barr, 43, of Boronia, had pleaded guilty in the County Court to four counts of sexual penetration of a 16 or 17-year-old under his care, supervision or authority.
In sentencing, Judge Elizabeth Curtain said Barr's rehabilitation was under way, but said she believed a prison term was necessary as a deterrent.
"Your breach of trust is a serious one," she said. "Parents let their children engage in such sporting pursuits in the knowledge that it will be an enjoyable experience. They do not expect the child to be abused by the people put in charge of them."
Judge Curtain sentenced Barr to two years' jail, with 21 months partially suspended.
The court heard that Barr's relationship with the girl had included driving her to training and allowing her to use his home computer for school work, which sometimes included staying the night.
The girl's mother was so thankful for Barr's help that she wrote him a poem of gratitude.
The sexual offences began when the girl was 16, and took place between February 1, 1997, and June 30, 1997. After the first incident, Barr told the girl that what had happened was illegal and they would both "go down" if she told anyone.
Barr was general manager of the Dandenong Basketball Association and a coach and manager at Basketball Victoria. He was in charge of an intensive training program for elite juniors, and coached the under-16 girls' state basketball team.
Judge Curtain said she had taken into account character references, including one from former Basketball Victoria general manager and Melbourne Tigers coach Lindsay Gaze, who had described Barr as "a man of character of the highest order".
