Offence/Other: Marc Bruce Tally. Convicted Sex Offender- Pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court to one charge of attempting to change his name as a reportable offender.

News (30-7-2012)- "Sex offender tried to change name"
A convicted sex offender has faced court after trying to change his surname without the consent of the Police Commissioner. Marc Bruce Tally, 28, of Bundaberg West, pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday to one charge of attempting to change his name as a reportable offender. Police prosecutor Senior Constable Fiona Ward said Tally became a reportable offender under the Child Protection Act last year after being convicted of having a consensual relationship with a girl under the age of consent. Snr Const Ward said Tally had been issued with and signed two sets of paperwork concerning his rights and obligations as a reportable offender, which were also explained to him - one of those being that he had to seek consent from the Commissioner before trying to change his name. But earlier this year, Tally made an application to the New South Wales Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to have his surname changed to Taliana. "The defendant said he was not intentionally deceiving anyone," Snr Const Glover said. "He said he was looking at moving to New South Wales to start a new job and he wanted to start under a new name. "The offence itself is quite a significant breach." Lawyer Warren Highland said his client was not aware he had to ask the Commissioner's permission to change his name and only found out when the registry told him. Mr Highland said Tally then contacted the Bundaberg Police Station to ask how to go about seeking permission. "My client prior to this matter has complied in every respect in relation to his obligations under the act," he said. "The name Taliana was a family name ... so it's not simply a name he's picked out of the air." Mr Highland said his client planned to move interstate because he had been offered a job as the assistant manager of a bowling alley. "He wanted to change back to the original family name and wanted to move on," he said. The court heard Tally was subject to a suspended sentence at the time of the offence. Magistrate Jennifer Batts adjourned the sentence to August 13 so she could take into consideration the transcript from Tally's original sentence that landed him on the reportable offender list.

"Bike path rapist Phillip Taupin jailed for nine years over attacks on 10 females in Melbourne's north" (11-9-2013)
A violent rapist who terrorised and attacked 10 females in Melbourne?s northern suburbs has been hit with a nine-year prison sentence. Phillip Taupin, 32, stalked his victims on bike paths and parkland through the Darebin, Reservoir and Coburg areas in 2011, 2012 and January this year, indecently assaulting women and girls as young as 15, the County Court heard today. Several victims were pushed to the ground and sexually assaulted or molested by Taupin, who on occasions rode a small motorbike around the females and wore a full-face helmet to hide his identity. In August 2011, armed with a pair of broken scissors which he held to one victim’s throat, Taupin subjected a young woman to a protracted and violent rape in which the female feared for her safety and felt compelled to comply with his demands, the court was told. Judge Meryl Sexton described the sex attacks as repulsive, cowardly and predatory acts in public places. "It remains every woman’s greatest fear that she may be attacked by a stranger while alone," she said. "General deterrence is of considerable importance in a case such as this. "By my sentence of you, I must seek to deter other men who think that they can prey upon women for their sexual gratification as if they had a right to do so." Judge Sexton said Taupin’s explanation to police after his arrest that he was lonely was “pathetic”. She applauded the courage of the female victims who spoke out about the abuse and fought Taupin during the assaults, saying they were not powerless and the court had heard their voices. In imposing a slightly higher sentence than that sought by prosecutors, Judge Sexton said Taupin had been identified as having a sexual deviancy with a high-to-moderate risk of reoffending and he would require a sex offenders treatment program while in custody. Judge Sexton sentenced Taupin to a maximum of nine years and three months jail with a minimum of seven years. Prosecutors had sought a range of seven to nine years. Taupin, who was unemployed at the time of the assaults, pleaded guilty to one charge of rape, nine charges of indecent assault, recklessly causing injury, assault and making a threat.

"Rape victim tells court: I felt like a hunted animal" - (22-7-2013)
A woman has told a court she "felt like an animal being hunted" after she was savagely raped on a bike path in Melbourne's north. Phillip Taupin, 33, pleaded guilty today to nine charges of indecent assault, making threats to inflict serious injury, rape, recklessly causing serious injury and common law assault. The County Court heard he would circle many of his victims - some as young as 15 - on his dirt bike on bike paths, preying on them before attacking the females. His first victim was walking in Lalor after finishing work late at night and he followed her from the train station. With a hood covering Taupin's face, he put a pair of scissors at her throat and said, "Don't say a word" as they began to wrestle and fell to the ground. The victim used all her wavering strength to fight off her attacker before being raped. In her victim impact statement read to court, the woman said she now felt self blame, worthlessness, guilt and had considered ending her life. "At the time I felt like an animal being hunted," she said. "I was savagely attacked, violated, poked and probed like an object that was used abused and thrown away like I was nothing. "My confidence of safety in the world has been significantly impacted. "Reliving and recalling all the details of the night where pieces of me were shattered and left scattered burden my spirit." The court was told that in December last year Taupin attacked a woman after she finished exercising on an oval in Mill Park. She was able to break free after hitting him in the testicles. In another eight attacks Taupin would ride his dirt bike around his victims on bike paths in Lalor, Thomastown, Reservoir, Fawkner and Coburg. He slapped some on the buttocks, grabbed one victim from behind and grabbed the thigh of a 15-year-old girl and then slapped the buttocks of her friend as the pair walked back from a milk bar. Taupin remains in custody and returns to court on August 15, when his plea hearing continues.

Offence/Other: Serial paedophile/ Graham Taylor-Formerly of Britain. Convicted of 8 child sex offences. Repeatedly abused 4 young boys over a 14 yr period.

New (21-5-2012)- "Boy-sex man can become citizen"- A confessed serial pedophile from Britain, who repeatedly abused four young boys over a 14-year period, has been cleared for Australian citizenship after a tribunal ruled he was of "good character". The decision was made despite an intelligence report from Washington indicating his credit card, full name, address, phone number and email were used to purchase child pornography over the internet between December 2003 and March 2004. Graham Ernest Taylor's application for citizenship was opposed on character grounds, given his 1996 convictions for eight counts of sexually abusing children aged about 11. Taylor lives on a disability pension in Gunnedah, northern NSW. He appealed against the department's character assessment to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, saying he had completed rehabilitation programs in jail and saw a psychiatrist for 18 months after his release in 1999. The tribunal heard the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the US had alerted the Australian Federal Police that Taylor's personal details had been used to purchase child pornography over a four-month period. NSW police sought a warrant to search Taylor's home in 2005, but the magistrate declined their request and the investigation was dropped. In his reasons of February 2, AAT deputy president Robin Handley wrote: "Mr Taylor's reputation will probably be forever tainted by the moral opprobrium with which his misconduct is rightly viewed. However . . . I am satisfied that he has reformed and . . . should now be regarded as of good character." Immigration Minister Chris Bowen's office said that the minister was "disappointed" by the tribunal's decision and had "sought further advice on potential options".

He sexually assaulted her in a vacant house 200 metres away. Taylor was found guilty after a three-day trial in Perth and is due to be sentenced in July. The incident sparked anger from child welfare groups and has led to the Western Australian Government indicating it would review the criteria used to grant bail.

News (2-6-2012)- "Accused cop biter is refused bail"-
A MAN accused of biting a police officer at Ipswich Hospital on Wednesday night had to be dragged from the dock at court on Thursday after he was refused bail. Matthew David Taylor, 34, a reportable sex offender, is accused of biting and punching two officers after allegedly getting into a fight at the hospital. As officers tried to arrest Taylor, he allegedly struck out at one of the officers in the face. The other officer attempted to restrain Taylor, but was allegedly bitten on the arm and his left hand, which drew blood and will result in the officer having a disease test. Taylor's defence applied for bail and said he would be contesting the charges but police prosecutors opposed bail as Taylor had a history for failing to appear in court and failing to comply with his duties to report as a sex offender. When Magistrate Hayden Stjernqvist refused bail, Taylor started arguing and became hostile. He was handcuffed by a police officer and court house security provided extra assistance. His case will next be mentioned on June 20.

"Ex- lecturer's porn shame" (17-3-2012)
Former university lecturer Frank Tesoriero devoted much of his life to helping the disadvantaged. Yet for years, he contributed to the degradation of children by downloading and sharing child pornography. Tesoriero - a former associate professor at the University of SA and Flinders University - was arrested in April last year and pleaded guilty in the District Court to aggravated possession and dissemination of child pornography, which attracts a maximum 10-year prison term. The court heard this week that Tesoriero had taken part in online sex chat rooms and had been downloading child pornography undetected "for years". Tesoriero, of Parkside, left his position at UniSA several years ago and retired from Flinders University in August last year. A Flinders spokesman said the university was unaware of the Tesoriero's pornography charges until contacted by the Sunday Mail and it immediately terminated any association with him. Tesoriero's former UniSA profile - removed from its website on Friday - said he had overseen numerous programs to help the disadvantaged and mentally ill. Tesoriero, 62, told Judge David Lovell he realised his offending was "repugnant" and "morally wrong". The judge remanded Tesoriero on bail so he can continue counselling before he decides whether the sentence should be suspended in September. Read more.

News (6-2-2012)- "Child sex offender jailed again"- Raymond Tetley is a registered child sex offender who has been jailed - again - for failing to report a change of residential address to police. Tetley, a 41-year-old concreter, has now been convicted seven times since 2005 for failing to comply with his reporting conditions. The known sex offender was jailed for eight months in December 2009 for his sixth offence. Now he is back in jail for another offence. Tetley was convicted of a child sex offence in 2000 and was sent to jail. When he was released in September 2005 he was given a notice to report annually to police until 2020. Under the conditions of the Australian National Child (Sex) Offenders Registry, known as ANCOR, a registered offender has numerous obligations to report details such as a change of address, a change of employer, any changes in their physical appearance, the details of any vehicles they own or use, even the clubs of which they become members. The Mackay Magistrate's Court heard on Friday that Tetley went to a South Mackay residence on January 19 looking for his former female partner, was told to leave by the occupants and was then involved in an altercation with two brothers who both suffered minor injuries. One of them fought him off with a walking stick. Police later located Tetley behind a hotel in River St. Inquiries revealed he had no residential address. He had left his Bakers Creek caravan last October without notifying police and then had lived at Alligator Creek for several months without telling authorities.

Offence/Other: Brendan Thomas - pleaded guilty to 10 charges of being involved in an indecent act with a child under the age of 16.
Pleaded guilty to possessing of child pornography

News (17-6-2011)- "Paedophile spared: No extra jail time for 161 child pornography images"-
A Red Cliffs man already serving prison time for child sex offences has been spared further time behind bars despite pleading guilty to possession of child pornography in the Mildura Magistrates’ Court. Brendon James Thomas downloaded more than 150 images of child pornography in a three-week period in 2009 and also secretly filmed a nine-year-old girl while she dried her naked body with a towel. Thomas had earlier pleaded guilty in a County Court hearing to 10 charges of being involved in an indecent act with a child under the age of 16 and was last month sentenced to three years and nine months in prison with a minimum term before parole of 15 months. This week he was sentenced to a further 10 months’ imprisonment, to be served concurrently with the earlier sentence; his release date will remain in August next year. The court was this week told the child pornography allegations were initially linked with the sex offence charges but subsequently became separated as a matter of legal process. Police prosecutor Senior Constable Tansley Hill said police raided Thomas’ Red Cliffs house in April last year and seized computer equipment containing 161 images of child pornography. Sen-Constable Hill said the images included mostly category one images but also category four – the worst there is. The prosecutor said the images were downloaded by Thomas between May 24 and June 16, 2009 and copied two months later to a disc which has never been recovered. Sen-Constable Hill said Thomas refused to be interviewed by police about secretly filming a nine-year-old girl drying herself with a towel. Defence counsel Florian Andrighetto said the pornography charges came to light with other matters for which he had already been sentenced. In seeking a custodial term to be served concurrently with his existing penalty, Mr Andrighetto said his client was undertaking an accounting course while in prison and would have a job to go to when released. However, Sen-Constable Hill said that while there was no prosecution objection to concurrency, the “very serious matters” warranted a clear message that offences of that nature against innocent and defenceless children would not be tolerated.

Age: 62yrs old (2010)
Sentence: Sentenced to 2yrs jail around 1996. In Jan 2010 Thomas- deemed to dangerous to be released- is to be kept in jail for another 18 months.

"Prison for paedophile" (24-9-2011)
A Wodonga man who indecently touched an eight-year-old girl and had 750 pornographic images on his laptop computer was yesterday jailed for eight months. Judge Marilyn Harbison said when sentencing Geoffrey Norman Thomas, 46, that his offending has had a profound impact on the victim and her parents. Victim impact statements had been tendered from them expressing their feelings over what happened. Thomas, a part-time spray painter, was described by Judge Harbison as an alcoholic who was drunk when the offences were committed. A forfeiture order was made relating to Thomas’ computer which had the images. Judge Harbison imposed an overall sentence of 14 months with a non-parole period of eight months. She said without a guilty plea Thomas would have received a 30-month jail term and 18 months to serve. He appeared for sentence after last month pleading guilty to an indecent act with a child under 16 and possessing child pornography.
Judge Harbison had previously been told Thomas became friends with a North East family in 2007 regularly visiting their farm and playing with their children. One of the children, a girl, 8, said Thomas touched her inappropriately three times between January 1 and May 1, 2009. The first time Thomas took the girl behind a shed and when she was seated on his lap, he lifted her skirt and had touched her genitals before the girl tried to pull away and ran off. In the second incident, Thomas touched the girl through her underwear and only stopped when her father had come out of the house to find her. The father was told by his daughter on January 6 last year about the incidents and reported them to police the following day. When interviewed by police on January 8, Thomas said he had been tickling the girl. Her skirt rode up, her underwear was partly down and “for some stupid reason I touched her vagina”. Police found his laptop contained many child pornography images. Thomas told police that he had been visiting pornographic websites for a year. He had saved images but believed that there were few of children under 10.

"'Tighten sex offender laws'" (8-4-2008)

"Tagged sex offender back in prison" (13-7-2007)
A dangerous sex offender who was allegedly caught smoking cannabis and drinking alcohol during a night out with another serial rapist has been ordered back behind bars. Trevor Toms, 42, was fitted with an electronic tag to monitor his movements following his release from prison last November over three rapes he committed in North Queensland in 1986. Corrective Services officers allegedly spotted Toms in a car with sexual sadist and convicted pedophile Robert John Fardon about 11.30pm on Wednesday, in contravention of Toms' 10pm curfew. The pair were questioned about their activities but are said to have lied about where they had been. Police were later granted search warrants to arrest the pair on suspicion that they had breached the conditions of strict supervision orders imposed following their release from jail. Toms has served a 22-year sentence for the 1986 rapes, all committed in the space of five weeks. Fardon was first jailed in 1978 for raping a 12 year-old girl and bashing her 15 year-old sister with a gun. He was released on parole in 1988, but just 20 days later raped an sodomised another woman in a vicious attack. He left prison in October last year after a failed bid by the State Government to have him permanently detained. Both men are now believed to be living in government housing inside prison grounds at Wacol, west of Brisbane. A Supreme Court judge this afternoon granted an application by Queensland Attorney General Kerry Shine to have Toms put back in jail while investigators compile evidence in the case against him. If successful, he could be subjected to a fresh supervision order or detained indefinitely. Toms, who sat in the prisoner's dock for the brief hearing, is facing charges of breaching his supervision order by failing to abstain from alcohol, using illicit drugs, namely cannabis, and failing to comply with his 10pm to 6am nightly curfew. He will undergo psychiatric examination and be held until July 23, when the matter is expected to be finalised Fardon, 58, who is charged with failing to abstain from violations of the law and failing to respond truthfully to inquiries about his whereabouts, is expected to be dealt with later today.

News (1-11-2011)- "Rapist tried dating victims"
A deluded sex fiend who tried to persuade victims to go on dates after he raped and sexually abused them was warned yesterday he risked spending a large part of his life in jail. Judge Gabriele Cannon told Tovia Tovia that a psychologist found he had "an elevated risk of re-offending" and the judge believed his chances of rehabilitation to be "bleak". She jailed him in the County Court for 14 years and set a minimum term of 8 1/2 years. Judge Cannon said that Tovia was on parole for another sex attack when he broke into the home of a 22-year-old woman in Melbourne's northwestern suburbs and subjected her to an ordeal that lasted several hours. Despite her tears and pleading Tovia raped the terrified stranger three times at knifepoint, while her 15-year-old sister slept in a nearby room. As she begged him to stop Judge Cannon said Tovia told her she could have his baby and added "It's not like I'm hurting you or anything". After the ordeal was over he asked the victim for her phone number, invited her to a party and a family dinner, left voicemail messages including one that asked if she would let him in if he returned. Judge Cannon said Tovia was deluded and his conduct was "chilling, disturbing and repugnant" and had a devastating effect on the woman who had to give up her job and risked having her car repossessed. Tovia, 26, a New Zealander born in Samoa, pleaded guilty to three counts of rape, one of attempted rape and one of aggravated burglary committed after he broke in to the victim's house through a bathroom window in November 2010. Judge Cannon said at the time Tovia was on parole, having served 18 months of a 39-month term for aggravated burglary and two counts of indecent assault. In that attack in June 2007 Tovia entered the unlocked back door of a woman's house and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint while her three-year-old son slept next door. The next day Tovia returned to her house hoping to persuade the woman to go on a date with him and he was arrested. Judge Cannon said Tovia had a serious drinking problem but her focus had to be on protecting the community rather than his rehabilitation. Tovia, who has been classified as a lifelong serious sexual offender, has to serve the unexpired portion of his sentence for the attack on his first victim before the latest sentence commences.

News (19-10-2002)- "Child killer could be released in seven years"
One of NSW's most notorious killers could walk free from jail in seven years after a judge yesterday redetermined his life sentence. Neville Raymond Towner, 36, has served 13 years over the sexual assault and murder of four-year-old Lauren Hickson at Emu Plains, in western Sydney, on May 17, 1989. Justice Greg James yesterday redetermined his life sentence, setting a minimum 20-year term, making Towner eligible for parole in 2009. Justice James told the NSW Supreme Court that Towner should have the prospect of release. "Although this crime was horrible, its seriousness, having regard to the views of the trial judges, was not such as to require [Towner] never be released," he said. A family friend and babysitter, Towner, then aged 23, bashed Lauren over the head with a rock to stop her screaming as he was raping her. He then drowned her in the Nepean River. Last Friday would have been Lauren's 18th birthday. A psychiatrist told the court Towner accepted responsibility for his crime and its enormity but had actively sought to forget it. The Crown had argued that his inability to recall the detail of Lauren's ordeal showed he did not fully acknowledge his guilt. Lauren's mother, Jurina Hickson, said child killers should "rot in jail". "I'm scared, I'm scared for my family. He's going to come after us ... we've heard that's why he's desperate to get out," Mrs Hickson said. Towner was jailed under a previous sentencing act in which the worst category of murder attracted a mandatory life sentence. Under the "truth in sentencing" legislation of 1989, some prisoners won the right to have their sentences redetermined.

News (21-9-2004)-
A Convicted rapist who fled Melbourne without serving his sentence has finally been arrested after living openly in Hobart for six months. Timothy Trethewie walked free from the County Court in April on a six-month intensive corrections order, but almost immediately breached the strict conditions by leaving Victoria. Although a warrant was issued for his arrest, Trethewie did not live like a fugitive in his home town. Instead of looking over his shoulder, he made no attempt to hide and claimed the dole at his local Centrelink office. But within three days of the Herald Sun contacting the Corrections Department and Victoria Police, a detective was sent to Tasmania to arrest Trethewie and bring him back to Melbourne. His victim, Carole (not her real name), was angry her attacker was not jailed and furious he fled. Carole said she was told it was unlikely Trethewie, 36, would be extradited back to Victoria because he did not receive a jail term. "I find it very strange that they suddenly get their bums into gear after I spoke to the media about my case," she said. She believes the rape was treated less seriously because her attacker was a former boyfriend. Trethewie pleaded guilty to rape in April and County Court Judge Jane Campton sentenced him. The maximum penalty for rape is 25 years. After evading jail, Trethewie attended just one ICO appointment and was reported for breaching the conditions of his ICO. Carole is distraught and disappointed with the legal system. "I've lost all faith in the legal system, the courts, the police . . ." she said. "I was always under the impression rape is a very, very serious thing. If you commit a crime like that you go to prison." - Herald Sun

News (18-8-2011)- "Former teacher and coach gets suspended jail term for enticing girls to send sex photos"
A former high school teacher and prominent athletics coach has avoided jail despite enticing two promising 15-year-old athletes to send him sexually provocative photos of themselves via the internet or mobile phone. Former Sarina State High School teacher David Trudgian, 40, was sentenced to a wholly suspended 18-month jail term after pleading guilty in the Brisbane District Court to five charges, including using the internet to procure the two elite child athletes to perform sex acts. The court was told the then central Queensland-based teacher and respected athletics coach met the girls, who attended a separate high school in another northern area, during a series of elite athletic tournaments between October and December 2007. Prosecutor Dennis Kinsella said Trudgian, then aged 37, was a prominent sprint coach who began giving the pair advice after tournaments in Townsville and at Brisbane's state and Sydney's national athletic championships. He said while Trudgian did not coach the girls, he offered to give them advice to help them fulfil their sporting aspirations. However, the court was told that relationship soured when internet and mobile phone text message communications spiralled downward from "innocent through to flirtation to sexually explicit." Mr Kinsella said Trudgian sent the girls a total of 2384 mobile phone text messages - including requests they pose nude and send him naked photographs of themselves between September 30, 2007, and February 1, 2008. He said Trudgian received 11 images - deemed to be child exploitation - from the girls, and that all of them could be found "intact" or recovered after being deleted from the teacher's phone or computer. The court was told police found the offensive images after searching his home after one of the girl's revealed what happened to one of her school teachers. Mr Kinsella said Trudgian moved to live in Melbourne in the wake of the police investigation. Trudgian originally pleaded guilty in early July to two counts of using a carriage service, meaning the internet or phone, to procure a child under 16 to perform a sexual act, two counts of making child exploitation material and one count of possessing child exploitation material. Barrister Dan O'Gorman, SC, for Trudgian, said both his client's teaching and coaching careers were ruined as a result of these offences and that Trudgian was now engaged as a full-time house dad to his one-year-old daughter. He said Trudgian and his heavily pregnant wife continue to live in Melbourne and are expecting the birth of their second child in two months. "What he (Trudgian) engaged in (with these girls) was stupid flirting that got out of control," Mr O'Gorman said. Judge Hugh Botting, in sentencing Trudgian, said: "These are ... serious offences and have had serious consequences for these two girls." "It is difficult to understand ... why you committed these offences." Judge Botting ordered Trudgian's prison term be wholly suspended for three years.

"Abuse claim against Geelong Grammar" (3-7-2011)
An exclusive Victorian school faces a damages claim over the alleged sexual molestation of a student more than 20 years ago. A former schoolboy has launched County Court action seeking exemplary damages against Geelong Grammar School. In a claim lodged with the court, the victim (whom the Sunday Herald Sun has decided not to name) claims to have been molested in 1989 by Philip Trutmann, who allegedly was a boarding house assistant at the Grammar's Highton, Geelong, campus at the time of the alleged offence. The court document claimed the school was responsible for the actions of the alleged attacker and when told of the alleged offences, failed to support or rehabilitate the victim. Mr Trutmann has not yet filed a defence to the claim and could not be contacted. A Geelong Grammar spokesman said no one was available to comment.

"Ex-Geelong Grammar staffer gets 6½ years" (14-12-2005)
A former Geelong Grammar staff member who sexually abused more than 40 male students between 1985 and 1995 was sentenced to 6½ years' jail yesterday. Phillipe Trutmann, 44, of Lal Lal, will serve at least 3½ years before he is eligible for parole and will be listed on a sexual offenders register for the next 15 years. In the Geelong County Court yesterday Judge John Smallwood said Trutmann was a "serious sexual offender" whose crimes against eight to 13-year-old boys ranged "over a very long period when clearly you knew it was wrong". "These took place against very young, totally defenceless children," Judge Smallwood said.

Offence/Other: Ian Wayne Tucker/ former Victorian school teacher. Was a member of internet paedophile ring. had more than 16,000 sexually explicit pictures and pornographic videos of young children on his computer when it was seized by police.

News (1-6-2009)- "Pedophile jail terms 'too light'" Australia's child pornography laws have been shown to be lenient, with US members of an internet pedophile ring jailed for life while its Townsville-based co-founder launches an appeal against his non-parole sentence of 32 months. Former Australia Post human resources regional manager Derek Richard Mara, 30, will next month fight to have his commonwealth jail term cut after he was convicted as one of the four founding members of the internet's oldest known pedophile ring, The Group, which financed made-to-order abuse movies and picture shoots of children, some just a few months old. Mara - who carried the moniker of "Tech" - provided computer expertise to encrypt and hide hundreds of thousands of files of the material sold and shared around the world. An investigation led by Queensland's Taskforce Argos and involving Interpol and the FBI infiltrated the ring in 2006, and last year arrested 22 core members and identified another 2500 customers of child-sex websites in 20 countries. More than 40 children identified in the images were rescued from abuse during the investigation. In recent months, The Australian has found that most of the 12 Americans convicted for their involvement in The Group have been sentenced to more than 30 years in jail for offences similar to those that Mara pleaded guilty to last year. Five Americans were given life, and another was sentenced to 70 years after he was also convicted of abusing a child and recording it on film. Other members of The Group, convicted in Europe, have received sentences of up to life in prison. Mara - who was also charged with indecent treatment of a child - was sentenced to six years in jail, with a non-parole period of 32 months after pleading guilty to three counts of sending and receiving pedophile images. It is believed to be the longest sentence given under commonwealth law for the offence, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years for producing, possessing or supplying child pornography. Child welfare expert Chris Goddard, who heads Monash University's Child Abuse Prevention Research Australia, said the states and commonwealth were lenient on those who traded in pedophile material. "Child abuse sentencing in Australia is soft in comparison with the rest of the world," Professor Goddard said. "The sentencing does not reflect the seriousness of the crime or the damage done. "One of the problems is the language - we call it child pornography, which gives a sense of consent. But these offenders are hiring people to grossly exploit and commit criminal acts against children. "We need to review the inadequate sentencing provisions." One other Australian, former Victorian schoolteacher Ian Wayne Tucker, 51, who was convicted as a member of The Group, was sentenced to 15months in jail. He had more than 16,000 sexually explicit pictures and pornographic videos of young children on his computer when it was seized by police.

Offence/Other: Ronald Tuckwell- Paedophile. Repeat Offender.

News (2-4-2009)- "Pedophile gets extra jail time"
Former community leader and convicted pedophile Ronald Louis Tuckwell has been ordered to serve another year in jail for sex offences. The sentence, imposed by the Adelaide Magistrates Court today, means Tuckwell will not be eligible for parole until he is 81. Tuckwell, 75, of Hoyleton, pleaded guilty to four counts of indecent assault, all against different victims aged 13 and under between 1960 and 1977. Magistrate Terrence Forrest told the court two of the offences had occurred "within a day or similar short period of the parents of the victim having separated." "Obviously the victims were in a position of considerable vulnerability," Mr Forrest said. "The offending you have engaged in has enourmous effects on its victims." He said Tuckwell had been shamed by the public knowing about his offences. "It has been put that you have suffered the shame and harm of your conduct having been exposed in more recent times." But he said the victim's experiences in re-telling what had happened to them to police officers was stressful. "That you have suffered a degree of harm will be of little comfort for your victims," he told the court. Mr Forrest said Tuckwell had not committed any offence since 1981, and imposed one sentence for the four counts of indecent assault. Tuckwell was sentenced in the District Court in June last year to 10 years in prison with a non-parole period of six years for five counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and four counts of indecent assault in the 1970s and 1980s. Another 12-month sentence with a non-parole period of three months was imposed on Tuckwell in the District Court in November last year for one count of indecent assault in 1961. Magistrate Forrest further extended Tuckwell's jail term by 27 months and ordered his six-year non-parole period be extended by 12 months.

News (18-8-2011)- "Man guilty of Marketown sex attack on 7-year-old"- A sexual predator who molested a seven-year-old girl in a Marketown Shopping Centre toilet block was suspected of carrying out a similar attack weeks earlier, court documents revealed. Police recognised Robert Jason Turnbull immediately when they viewed security camera footage from a nearby shop on February 2, a police statement said. One officer informed his colleagues that Turnbull was a suspect in a similar attack at the Newcastle West shopping centre on January 13, prompting detectives to arrest Turnbull at his Fowler Street, Hamilton South, home within minutes. Turnbull, 38, pleaded guilty in Newcastle Local Court yesterday to two counts of indecent assault and will face Newcastle District Court next week. He has a criminal record for sexual abuse and has been refused bail since his capture, court documents stated. The girl was at the shopping centre with her mother on February 2 when she ran to the toilet block on the Parry Street side of the building. She was in the women's toilets when she noticed Turnbull peering over the toilet door at her and looking at her through a gap between the door and the stall. Turnbull told the girl to let him in because he needed to fix something, but once inside he locked the door and told her to pull her skirt down. She didn't so Turnbull did before assaulting her twice. A witness in the stall beside them became suspicious when she heard Turnbull say, "Be quiet or I'll kill you" and the girl say "I don't like what you're doing to me". The witness said, "What's going on," and then came out of her stall to see the victim standing there upset. She took the girl to her mother and they went to centre management, where police were called. Turnbull denied being at the shopping centre, but police found a matching palm print on one of the toilet doors.

"Predator in jail 'forever'" (19-5-2008)
One of the Territory's worst child "sexual predators'' has been sentenced to an indefinite period of imprisonment. And a Darwin woman who sexually abused a girl -- including on a public park bench -- "in company'' with the man will spend at least five years behind bars. William Gordon Turner had a 30-year history of sex crime when he subjected an 11-year-old girl to four years of sexual abuse. Chief Justice Brian Martin said last Thursday he could not impose a fixed period of 25 years jail, because there was a high risk Turner would still seek out and abuse the "young and vulnerable'' at 77-years-old -- even if he was "physically frail''. "The power to fix an indefinite sentence is an exceptional power and should be exercised only in those cases where it is demonstrably necessary to protect the community from physical harm,'' Chief Justice Martin said.
Unable to read or write, Turner's history of sexual offending dates back to 1973. At 18, he and his 16-year-old brother were convicted of raping two young hitchhikers near Mataranka, leaving them on the side of the road. But in the aftermath of the damage of Cyclone Tracy, he was released in January 1974 due to an "administrative error'' after serving just months of a six-year sentence. In January 1975, the Australian Governor-General reduced his sentence to two years. A year later he committed incest in Mt Isa, and was given 18-months jail. He went to Mataranka upon release in 1977, and after a short stint in jail for assault, he again raped a girl he abducted from the Berrimah Hotel. After his release in 1984, he bashed a 28-year-old woman and had unlawful sexual intercourse with her 11-year-old daughter. He was sentenced to 14 years in 1992, with a non-parole period of eight years, with the judge suppressing his name. Turner began to "pave the way'' to have sex with the 11-year-old Darwin girl, which saw him back in the Supreme Court this year, soon after he met her in February 2002. He bought her expensive presents, before starting to have sex with her in October 2006. He also forced her to watch porn and, when she turned 15, use dildos. Chief Justice Martin said Turner dominated the girl with threats to kill her and her family. "He threatened the child with harm to her and her family.''
In 2006, he introduced Patricia Anne Rayment to the girl. Rayment was 18 years older than the girl when she started sexually abusing her in company with Turner. Chief Justice Martin said Rayment was sexually abused as a child and often referred to Turner as 'Dad'. Turner is now the only prisoner currently serving an indefinite sentence.

"Victim relieved as 'grotesque' paedophile jailed" (30-5-2012)
A paedophile who abused two girls throughout their childhood years has been sentenced to at least 15 years in jail. The sentencing judge has described the man's crimes as "grotesque". The Adelaide District Court heard Phillip Turtur, 64, subjected his young victims to repeated violent rapes during the 1980s and '90s. The first victim was seven when the abuse started and the other was 11 when Turtur first abused her. Judge Geoffrey Muecke said Turtur subjected both to "indescribable horror" during years of abuse. "You abused both of them in a frighteningly callous way," he said. "For five long years she lived in dread, never knowing when you would pounce but expecting it at any time. No child should have to live with this terror hanging over their head. "[The victim] began dissociating with reality because the reality was so horrific and traumatising, at just seven years of age." The first victim, who consented to being identified as Joanne, was once Turtur's niece. Judge Muecke said the abuse had started when her family visited her grandfather's grave. "The family would be at the cemetery for about two hours each Sunday, it seems it also became a tradition for you to sexually abuse Joanne when the family was at the cemetery," he said. "You did that for the next four years, from when Joanne was seven to 11." The judge said the second victim had been abused into her teenage years and was severely affected as a result. The court heard Turtur raped her immediately after she had cut her wrists with a razor blade. Judge Muecke sentenced Turtur to 23 years' jail, with a non-parole period of 15 years. Turtur will be almost 80 before he will be eligible to seek release. Outside court, Joanne said she and the other victim felt relieved after the sentencing. "We as survivors are incredibly relieved that this is over, it has taken a lot of courage and energy to get to this point," she said. "No sentence will take away our pain and suffering but we feel the sentence is some recognition of what we have endured. "I think we both feel that we have achieved justice, definitely." She thanked her supporters during the legal process. "I've had a lot of really good family support, my immediate family and really great friends and I think that's really helped along the way," she said. Joanne said she would now focus on ways to support other abuse victims. "I want other girls who have been in my position, who are out there and wanting to come forward, to come forward because it's a great relief and not to be scared because they will be supported," she said. "The pain and suffering is something that is there, but I'm happy with my life now and this is something I'll never forget."

"'Monster' Phillip Turtur sexually abused girl as her family grieved each week" (3-5-2012)
A "disgusting monster" abused a young girl every Sunday while her family mourned at her grandfather's grave, a court has heard. Yesterday, to the sound of sobbing from supporters in the public gallery, the District Court heard the victim impact statements of those injured by Phillip Turtur's sexual crimes. Turtur, 64, of Salisbury, had pleaded guilty to one count of persistent sexual exploitation of a child, 12 counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and one count of indecent assault. He repeatedly abused two girls, while in a position of trust, between 1982 and 1994. His crimes occurred in various Adelaide suburbs, causing the girls and their families enduring psychological pain.
Yesterday, one victim said she was just seven years old when the abuse began. "You murdered my body and my mind and it was my job as a seven-year-old to hold it together all on my own," she said. "I look upon you as a monster who has shown no remorse; you deserve to be locked in a cell, alone and isolated like I was." But despite her past, the woman proudly told the court she was finally a "confident, happily married woman". "Now the person who has died from me is you; your reign of terror has ended," she said. "My life is empowered by bringing you justice." Martin Kirby, prosecuting, said while that victim's family visited the grave of a loved one every Sunday, Turtur would make arrangements for her to stay with him and he would abuse her. He said that on one occasion Turtur had threatened one of his victims with a butcher's knife to keep his secret. "Mr Turtur produced a sharp knife, I think it was described as a butcher's knife, which he put to the throat of this young victim," Mr Kirby said. "It was a continued threat in the victim's mind of the consequences of complying, of not doing what she was told." Turtur was remanded in custody and will be sentenced this month.
