Grandchild molester jailed for six years

06/06/2018 Posted by admin

A NORTHERN man who molested three of his own grandchildren has been sentenced to more than six years’ jail for his crimes. The 70-year-old offender, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his victims, pleaded guilty in the Launceston Supreme Court on Tuesday to: •Two counts of indecent assault and one of unlawful oral sexual intercourse with his 14-year-old grandson. •One count of maintaining a sexual relationship with his granddaughter when she was six years old. •One count of oral rape and two counts of indecent assault against his five-year-old grandson. “I regard the crimes as appalling ones,” Chief Justice Ewan Crawford said in handing down his sentence yesterday. “Right-minded persons will find it impossible to understand how a grandfather could treat his little grandchildren in such degrading and perverted ways.” Chief Justice Crawford described the crimes as serious examples of breaches of trust towards children in the offender’s care. “He instructed the children that what they were doing was a secret and that they were not to tell anyone,” he said. “From time to time he offered them treats.” The offender’s behaviour came to light last November when his grandson made some disclosures at school, which led to interviews with the children and the accused. “He made admissions, although he sought to blame the children for what had occurred,” Chief Justice Crawford said. “It is likely that all of the children will suffer significant emotional and psychological injury as a result of what he did.” His wife has stood by him and she too has been ostracised by her children as a consequence of that decision. The offender will not be eligible for parole until he has served six years and three months of his sentence. His name has also been placed on the Community Protection Register and he must comply with the required reporting conditions for six years upon his release.
