Senior Victorian cop charged with rape

    A SENIOR officer in the Victorian police force has been charged with rape.

    On Thursday afternoon, Victoria Police released a statement confirming the arrest.

    “A police member has been charged with sexual offences following an investigation by Professional Standards Command,” said police.

    “The Senior Constable from Eastern Region has been charged on summons with rape and sexual assault offences.”

    The Eastern Region covers the eastern portion of the state as well as north eastern Melbourne.

    The man is expected to appear at court at a later date.

    He is currently suspended with pay, police said.

    When they are suspended with pay and later on it is proven the allegations are true, I think they should be required to pay back the pay! It's taxpayers' money!

    I absolutely agree with this... and I think in the case of all Govt funded jobs they ought to have pay back their wages as well, from the date of the crime -- if the crime is against the public they are meant to be serving and protecting.

    This includes teachers who have sex with their students, firemen committing felonies, etc. Why should we all pay those wages, when they're harming us?

    He's not the only cop who's been arrested for rape here, in the past decade..


    pedo and drug dealer,, sheesh...


    A POLICE officer, whose case caused outrage when he was charged with raping a young girl but wasn’t arrested, walked free again yesterday.

    The senior constable, who cannot be named because of a suppression order made by the court, has been allowed to remain at large in the community after officers at his station issued him with a future court attendance notice instead of arresting him in April.

    He faces a potential life sentence after being charged with aggravated sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10 and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

    The senior constable was granted bail at the court yesterday and the case adjourned until August 13.

    The case was criticised because the officer’s police colleagues issued a future court attendance notice with strict conditions, including an apprehended violence order protecting his alleged victim, instead of arresting him.

    That is despite the sex charge carrying a maximum penalty of life imprisonment and the assault allegation five years in jail.

    The man continued to work as a police officer while being investigated after the complaints were made in October, 2013 following the alleged offences earlier that year.

    He was only formally suspended from his policing duties, with pay, two months ago.

    This article has apparently been pulled from public view.... thank goodness for Wayback Machine. anyway... another monster in uniform gets an easy ride... but then, pedo crimes here often don't get heavy sentences. Really makes a person wonder how high up the corruption really goes.

    A former Victorian policeman has been sentenced to more than four years in prison after pleading guilty to producing child pornography by exploiting his own granddaughter.

    The veteran officer, who worked in a family violence unit, took several photographs of his granddaughter's genitals as she slept.

    The photos were transmitted to other paedophiles who communicated in forums on the dark web and traded sickening images of child abuse and bestiality.

    During one conversation in 2012, the former policeman encouraged another man to have sex with an eight-year-old child.

    In another online exchange, he spoke explicitly about wanting to sexually assault his grand-daughter and make her pregnant.

    The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons and was given a pseudonym in court, also discussed his desire to rape a 14-year-old boy.

    But in 2013, he communicated with a man who was the target of a broader investigation by Queensland Police's Argos taskforce, which has earned a reputation for dismantling child-exploitation rings around the globe and apprehending some of the world's most notorious paedophiles.

    In May 2016, Victoria Police officers searched the man's home and seized a laptop computer, two portable hard drives and a mobile phone.

    Investigators found 25 images of child pornography on the man's phone, including one involving a sex act between a child and an animal.

    He resigned from the force in November 2016.

    In September last year, he pleaded guilty in the County Court to state and Commonwealth offences for producing child pornography, using a carriage device to transmit child pornography and possession of child pornography.

    County Court judge Jane Campton described the man's conduct as "deplorable and unforgivable".

    "It is an aggravating feature of your offending that you used your own granddaughter to produce child pornography. ... In performing this despicable act, you took advantage of a vulnerable young child, and betrayed the trust she would have placed in you as a grandfather," Judge Campton said.

    "I have also taken into account that your offending occurred when you were a member of the police posted at the family violence unit. Your level of insight in the harm caused by this offending should have been high."

    Judge Campton sentenced the man to four years and six months imprisonment on the Commonwealth charges with a non-parole period of three years. He was also handed a 30-month sentence on the state charges, with a non-parole period of 18 months

    Between 1 January 2004 and 30 June 2014 searches of Victoria Police, OPI and IBAC databases identified a total of 114 recorded complaints alleging forms of predatory behaviour. A total of 142 individual victimisations were identified from these complaints.

    For each of the 142 alleged victimisations, a primary allegation type was assessed.

    The most common allegation types assessed were ‘Improper Behaviour’, ‘Use Position’ and ‘Sex Offence’. ‘Improper Behaviour’ typically related to incidents where a police officer allegedly made lewd and suggestive unwanted remarks of a sexual nature to a vulnerable person. ‘Use Position’ typically related to incidents where a police officer allegedly used their position to proposition, commence or attempt to commence an intimate relationship with a vulnerable person. ‘Sex Offence’ typically related to alleged sex crimes (offences contained within the Crimes Act 1958) including rape, indecent assault and sexual acts with minors committed by police officers against vulnerable persons. Analysis of the complaint data revealed:

    • all but one of the officers identified as alleged perpetrators of predatory behaviour were male • with one exception, all victims of alleged predatory behaviour were female • officers identified as alleged perpetrators had on average 13 years of service at the time of receiving a complaint of predatory behaviour

    • approximately one-third of identified officers were subject to two or more separate allegations of predatory behaviour. A number of these officers were still employed by Victoria Police at the time of drafting this report

    • officers identified as alleged repeat perpetrators (with two or more separate allegations) accounted for nearly half of all recorded allegations

    • officers from rural locations were over-represented as alleged perpetrators of predatory behaviour4, although officers from metropolitan locations still represented the majority of alleged perpetrators

    • victims of domestic and family violence were the most common victims of alleged predatory behaviour. Persons with mental health issues, minors, victims of other crimes and sex workers were also common victims of alleged predatory behaviour

    • statistically, complaints about predatory behaviour were twice as likely to be substantiated than other complaints against police.

    My mother was a vulnerable, very mentally ill woman who was preyed on by not one, but TWO police officers (whom I was encouraged to call 'uncle', as was the custom here back then, for a mother's boyfriend). Both married, both carried on affairs with my mother... and three children (my siblings) were the result. Both refused to take responsibility for these children, and while my mother suffered paranoia, I tend to think there was a good reason she lived in terror for many years after these relationships ended.

    As we (the kids) were subjected to sexual abuse during this time, I ----want to know--- the names of these cop rapists, especially that pedo... we victims should have the right to the names of ALL predators!
