Jailed child molester faces more sex charges after two decades of abuse
24 February 2015
A REMORSELESS child sex predator jailed for molesting nine young students at an exclusive Jewish college is headed back for court.
The man is due back in court next month after being charged by Geelong’s sexual offences unit.
The Herald Sun revealed in August last year that he was being investigated over the alleged assault of a fellow jailmate.
The man was jailed last year for a sickening history of abuse against children at a college in Melbourne’s southeast.
He was employed as a karate instructor and security guard despite rumours he had molested students.
The Royal Commission into child sexual abuse heard earlier this month the rumours of his offending were known by college leaders as early as the 1980s.
Despite the allegations, he was allowed to continue working at the school.
Police launched an investigation into the man following the alleged attack on a teenage prisoner at Marngoneet Correctional Centre, where he is serving an eight-year jail term.
It is understood the man was transferred to the nearby high-security Barwon Prison immediately after the allegations were made last year.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman confirmed a 46-year-old Lara resident had been charged with five counts of indecent assault.
The man’s horrific record of abuse spanned two decades and rocked Melbourne’s tight-knit Chabad community.
He was first found guilty of indecent assault against a minor in 1991 but was again allowed to work at the college.
He was later charged with more than 40 offences spanning the 1980s and ‘90s against children aged seven to 17.
After a jury found him guilty of five charges of rape against one former student, he admitted assaulting another eight complainants.
County Court Judge Peter Wischusen said the man had shown a lack of remorse.
