Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on the 3rd of September that 28% of paedophiles convicted of federal laws do not go to jail so the government is introducing mandatory sentencing laws. The minimum inference that can be drawn is that Australian judges and magistrates are running a paedophile protection racket.
If 28% of paedophiles convicted of federal laws aren’t going to jail what is the real number of paedophiles that are knowingly being let off in Australia when state laws are added? 40%? 50%?
The judges that let paedophiles off are deliberately and knowingly breaking the law as they know they should be sending the paedophiles to jail. So why aren’t the judges sending the paedophiles to jail? Without a doubt, some judges are paedophiles themselves and some would be taking bribes. Whatever the case it needs investigating by authorities in a major way and this website has been shining a light on the issue for a long time.

Mandatory jail sentences for child sex offenders

Minister for Home Affairs
Paedophiles would face mandatory jail sentences and the most serious offenders could be jailed for life under sweeping changes to Federal sentencing laws to be introduced to Parliament next week.
The Crimes Legislation Amendment (Sexual Crimes Against Children and Community Protection Measures) Bill 2019 will also make it harder for serious offenders to get bail, while repeat offenders will have to stay in prison for longer.
The Bill reflects the Morrison Government’s commitment to keeping Australians safe and creates new offences to capture evolving forms of child exploitation such as being the administrator of a website that functions for the purpose of distributing child abuse material.
Attorney-General Christian Porter said 28 percent of child sex offenders convicted of federal offences in 2018-19 did not spend one day in jail – a statistic totally out of step with community expectations.
“It simply beggars belief that nearly a third of all child sex offenders who were sentenced last year were not required to spend a single day behind bars, despite the devastating and life-long impacts that their crimes have on their young victims and their families,” the Attorney-General said.
“And when jail terms were handed out, the average length of time that offenders spent in custody was just 18 months.
“The changes being introduced by the Morrison Government will ensure that a jail term becomes the starting point for all child sex offenders, while maximum penalties will also be increased to better reflect the gravity of these types of crimes, including a new life term for the worst offenders.” Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton said the Australian Federal Police received almost 18,000 reports of child exploitation involving Australian children or Australian child sex offenders last year, which was almost double the number from the previous year.
“Sentences need to reflect community expectations and act as a significant deterrent to others, which is why these sorts of despicable crimes must result in significant penalties, not simply a slap on the wrist which is often the case,” Mr Dutton said.
“Our Government is at war with these predators and all those who would seek to do harm to children.
“The message we are sending to paedophiles is that it won’t matter how good their lawyer is, a prison cell will be waiting for them when they are convicted. This is what the community expects and this what the Morrison Government intends to deliver.
“I would urge the Labor Party, who failed to support these reforms in the last Parliament, to listen to the Australian People and put community safety first when it comes time to vote on this Bill.” The Bill complements a broad package of reforms already introduced by the Coalition during the last Parliament, which strengthened laws relating to child sexual abuse and created new protections for the community.
This included tough new measures to stop child sex offenders from travelling overseas to abuse children and the introduction of Carly’s law, which targets online predators who use the internet to prepare or plan to sexually abuse children.
The new Bill will vastly improve justice outcomes and community safety through:
- Mandatory minimum sentences for serious child sex offences and for recidivist offenders
- A presumption against bail for serious and repeat offenders to keep them off the streets
- Increased maximum penalties across the spectrum of child sex offences, including up to life imprisonment for the most serious offences
- Presumptions in favour of cumulative sentences and actual imprisonment
- Ensuring that all sex offenders, upon release from custody, are adequately supervised and subject to appropriate rehabilitative conditions
- Preventing courts from discounting sentences on the basis of good character where this is used to facilitate the crime.
The Bill will be introduced to Parliament next Wednesday. (Click to see on the Attorney-Generals website)
On the 3rd of September 2019 Prime Minister Scott Morrison tweeted: “28% of child sex offenders sentenced in Australia last year did not serve one day in jail. That’s just not OK, not even close. These offenders are the lowest of the low & we’re going to ensure they go to jail with new mandatory sentencing laws.” and in the same Tweet Scott Morrison posted the below video:
Hypocrisy by Prime Minister Scott Morrison
Scott Morrison is talking tough on jailing paedophiles, yet he is good friends with Hillsong Church Pastor Brian Houston who, as I reported in July, is currently under investigation by the NSW Police for concealing his father raping children.
I wrote on the 13th of July 2019:
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife were on stage leading prayers in front of 21,000 people on Tuesday night (9/7/19) with the Hillsong Church’s Brian Houston who is still under investigation by the NSW police for concealing the sexual abuse of children by his father Frank Houston.
In 2014 while giving evidence at The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse Brian Houston admitted he knew his father had abused children and he had failed to report it to the police so it is not a fact that is in dispute or a fact that Scott Morrison wouldn’t know.
There are many reasons, which I outline below, why Scott Morrison should have never been on stage with paedophile protector Brian Houston who is under investigation by the NSW police. (Click here to read more)
In recent days Scott Morrison has embarrassed himself and Australia when it was revealed that Morrison tried to take Brian Houston to the US and Washington to rub shoulders with President Donald Trump but the Whitehouse refused Brian Houston clearance which was almost certain to be because of the current NSW police investigation.
One of the people who was abused as a child by Brian Houston’s father, Frank Houston, is Brett Sengstock who was abused from the age of Seven. Brian Houston and the Hillsong Church are refusing to pay compensation to victims even though they are meant to and Brett Sengstock, who is also battling cancer, is being forced by Brian Houston to fight every step of the way for compensation. Scott Morrison would have to know this, yet he still is good friends with Brian Houston and helps him promote the Hillsong Church which many regard as nothing more than a money-making scam.
“I have written about Brett Sengstock before and I spoke to him on Sunday and he said in relation to the Scott Morrison / Brain Houston Whitehouse scandal:
“This is an absolute slap in the face to sexual abuse survivors, the survivors who attended the Royal Commission and to the Australian laws. It makes Scott Morrison’s apology to sexual abuse survivors look like it means absolutely nothing. It’s invalid. And Scomo parading around with Brian Houston isn’t a good look. What are Scott Morrison’s people thinking or is there a deeper problem or reason behind all of this? Scott Morrison would be fully aware of the police investigation I’m positive.”
Brett Sengstock is currently raising funds to help with his ongoing legal battles for justice and also to help with his recovery from cancer treatment. He has a crowndfunding page on GoFundMe if you would like to help. (Click here for Brett’s GoFundMe page)
I agree that there should be mandatory sentencing laws for paedophiles but that alone will not solve the problem of paedophiles being let back on the streets by the corrupt judges, prosecutors, and police who are currently letting the paedophiles off without any real punishment. This has been a problem that has been known for years.
I wrote an article titled “Child Abuse Royal Commissioner Justice Peter McClellan outlines failures of judges and prosecutors” in April 2017 and said:
In a speech on the 13th of April 2017 the Chairman of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, The Hon Justice Peter McClellan AM, raised issues regarding the failure of judges and prosecutors to do their jobs properly and therefore fail victims of child sex abuse.
Justice Peter McClellan is also a NSW Supreme Court judge and it is almost unheard of for judges to criticise their fellow judges so it is a big call. And as I have reported in the last few posts it is not just members of the public that are raising issues of judicial failings and corruption. Many members of the legal fraternity are also raising issues themselves as the problem is now out of control. (Click here to read more)
Former police officer Peter Fox, who is a whistleblower on child sex abuse cover-ups in the church and NSW police force, has recently published a book on the subject titled Walking Towards Thunder and he said recently:
“In my book Walking Towards Thunder I explain how NSW Police collaborated with the Catholic Church to implement blind reporting, a controversial clergy abuse protocol, despite legal advice that blind reporting conflicted with the law.” (Click here to see reviews and a description of his book)
The ABC reported: “Blind reporting occurs when an organisation passes on an allegation of child sex abuse, but strips the report of the name of the victim, meaning police are unable to investigate the report.” In NSW it “has potentially allowed hundreds of perpetrators to continue to abuse children.” (Click here to read more)
You don’t have to go any further than what Justice Peter McClellan and Peter Fox have said to know that the problem covers the judges who fail to jail the paedophiles, the prosecutors who fail the victims and the police who fail to investigate and charge paedophiles. It is not a minor problem, it is a protection racket concealing a national epidemic.
Last year I was convicted and sentenced to 18 months jail for calling Justice Clifton Hoeben a paedophile and registrar Christopher Bradford a suspected paedophile and known bribe taker in court on the 3rd of February 2017. Which I deny. It was reduced to 4 months on appeal. I was already in the line of fire of the judges for an email I sent to the Supreme Court outing 15 judges, 2 registrars and 1 magistrate as paedophiles, suspected paedophiles and raising issues of judicial bribery. I published the email and the names of the judges in an article titled “Paedophile priest gets 3 months jail for raping 3 boys by NSW Supreme Court’s Justice Hoeben” (Click here to read the article)
The judges who stitched me up for some jail time because I outed them as paedophiles or suspected paedophiles are some of the same judges who are protecting the paedophiles by not jailing them or giving them very light sentences. I was, in fact, stitched-up for some jail time for exposing them.
Scott Morrison is talking tough on the issue, but he is at best only putting a band aid on the problem if that. The mandatory sentencing laws were meant to have been put before parliament 2 weeks ago but have not been heard of since Scott Morrison’s big announcement on the 3rd of September.
I’ll keep following up on this issue.
