SA man jailed for abusing girls on his trips to South-East Asia

Australian court imposes a sentence of more than nine years on Adelaide man who sexually assaulted girls during regular overseas trips.

An Adelaide man who sexually abused several young girls in Cambodia and kept a collection of child abuse material was sentenced to nine years and six months’ imprisonment by the Adelaide District Court yesterday (17 September).

The 47-year-old had pleaded guilty last year to 12 offences after an extensive investigation by the South Australia Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team – known as SA JACET – which included comparing his features to those of a man abusing girls in videos posted online.

SA JACET launched an investigation in early 2019 after information was received from Queensland Police about comments on a child abuse website that were suspected to have been posted by someone in South Australia.
