This judge must have come from another state.

A strict Christian from southern Tasmania has been sentenced to two years jail for sexually assaulting his step and biological sons, who were as young as six months old.

 

The man pleaded guilty to maintaining a sexual relationship with a young person, and indecent sexual assault.

 

The Supreme Court in Hobart heard the 37-year-old started abusing his seven-year-old step-son in 2006, and later his own baby boy in 2008, who was aged just 6 months.

 

The father of three continued the abuse until October last year when his step-son began sex education lessons.

The defence lawyer said his client's father was a pastor and the 37-year old's long repressed homosexual thoughts because of his strict Christian upbringing.

 

 

 

I've heard that one before.

Why is it always Clergymen doing this what the hell are they learning is there a special bible that has a different set of Ten Commandments "Thou Shall lay with a Child as if it were a woman." can't say i've seen it that one may explain things tho.

What do they mean by 'strict Christian' though? Was he someone who labelled themselves a 'Christian' yet was very strict at home, like no booze, no smokes, that kind of thing? Cos I'm pretty sure he wasn't 'strictly' (or even loosely by the sound of it) holding to the teachings of Christ.

Surely, this woman must have originally come from tTasmania too?

A SCHOOL house mistress who sexually abused 11- and 12-year-old boys in her care told a psychiatrist that having sex with the children made her feel like "a child, a rock star, a goddess".

 

In the New South Wales District Court in Sydney today, Judge Anthony Garling found the 41-year-old guilty of 21 sex offences against six boys who attended the NSW school where she worked.

Two years doesn't seem long enough to me.

 

It's not.

 

Not by a long shot.

 

Agreed, but the Hard Boys inside lockup will still make it a long two years for him though - they LOVE Rock Spiders...

This really disgusts me.

 

Firstly I'm offended that he would use being gay as a defence, that would be like saying you weren't allowed to keep a pet at home so you turned to beastiality.

 

Secondly, only two years???

People who download child porn can get more than tripple that punishment.

 

What is better, get off over a picture? or get off over a kid? apparently the law thinks the later one.

These quotes taken from the article...

The father of three continued the abuse until October last year when his step-son began sex education lessons.

IMO. The father gets worried about what the boy will divulge in class.

 

He confessed to the abuse and sought help from a sex addiction counsellor in Melbourne and his pastor.

 

The court heard that despite the counselling, the 37-year old relapsed in July this year and after disclosing the abuse to his General Practitioner, authorities were notified.

It doesn't clarify whether he gave the specifics of his criminal abuse of his children to the sex - ed. counsellor. If he did, then both the counsellor and the pastor should be held accountable also.

 

Justice Evans said "if it had not have been for the man's own disclosure, the crimes may still be continuing."

 

He said while the damage of these acts is incalculable, the penalty must not discourage others from speaking out and obtaining treatment

As I said above I believe he only came forward because of what his son might say in class. Seems the father may have been cluey enough to realise he'd be a bit better off

[sentencing-wise] if he admitted his actions.

If the father really cared about his boys, and wife, I mean really cared about anyone other than himself and satisfying his own needs, this particular travesty would not be happening

to his family.

 

edit : For clarity ...thanks LP.

I'm sure there are many people with 'sex addiction' that would never think of abusing kids........especially your own!
