Child safety please help protect our children

This is a must read all this information is crucial for the safety of our children

At 01 February 2011 there were 12,478 registered offenders across Australia.

Dear Friend 

I really appreciated the opportunity to express the importance of child safety. Especially with what I have had to deal with personally with having nowhere to turn to protect my son from a person who had a position of power in the community and as a result had to send my child away for his own protection; as well as listening to a lot of other victims of clergy crimes which are not being heard..............(needs to be addressed) I was informed to go to the Melbourne Response for assistance when this priest who had an obsession for my son. I was told that they would assist me in protecting my son, and making the priest answerable for his inappropriate actions.

But this was not the case as O’Callaghan was in hospital awaiting surgery.  (24/Oct/06) I begged him to put me in contact with someone that could address my concerns, due to the importance of the complaint. Mr O’Callaghan claimed there was no one else that he was the omega with a chuckle, and asked me to tell him what was wrong. I proceeded to do this hoping he would place someone else to view the case. But after two days of trying to tell O’Callaghan the importance of the case he came back with a letter he started to read to me that he was going to send to the offending Priest.

The shock of this I stopped him demanding he listen to me as I proceeded to tell him of the sickening txt messages again and the fact the priest threatened me. So I sent my son away, to the priest telling me he would stage a breakdown at mass. I informed two parishioners this was going to occur but I sent my son away without the priest knowing anyway. My son did not turn up for Alter service the last Sunday so the Priest started the mass and then started crying asking Parishioners to pray for him as he was not coping; I was really stressing and demanding O’Callaghan to hear me, he told me he would think about it as we were interrupted by a doctor that entered his room and I was told he would ring back.

The anxiety the fear the horror that he was not taking me seriously; next minute I know I have this priest ringing me begging for help that he had just received a phone call from O’Callaghan’s office and how a parishioner had reported him for indecent conduct!??! I told the priest I was busy that I couldn’t talk. The Priest kept ringing begging me to help him as I kept making excuses hoping he would go away, but after the fourth call I firmly told the priest I cannot help YOU; and asked him not to ring back. Horrified and angry that O’Callaghan had put me in this Position I rang his office demanding answers why no one was listening to me and why the hell is this priest ringing me to help him.

The lady working in the office said she would tell O’Callaghan and ask him to ring me. Well he did ring me asking me to repeat the priests breakdown; as I told him again the priest threatened to do this as he wouldn’t cope without my son and he would go on sick leave till my son returned which scared me because he could follow my son as he was obsessed with him. After this O’Callaghan informed me he would ask the priest to leave Healesville within the next couple of hours pending an investigation.

That he would send Sue Sharkey to visit me and gave me her contact details and asked me to ring her and set up an appointment. Which I did, our first meeting which took place at the RACV country club….

They took all the details lined up a meeting to talk to my son and then withheld the information he disclosed for 3-4 months as I persisted to enquire as to what was happening but got nowhere, they put no duty of care in place for my son and ignored to inform me of all the information, stalling till O’Callaghan was back at work 4 months later when he finally started to address the complaint, sending Sue too inform me of what my son disclosed and said that O’Callaghan would deal with it now his first letter outlining the complaint was finally sent to Priest.

O’Callaghan finally writing to the Priest on the 6th/2/07 asking him to reply, I rang O’Callaghan as to what was going on and why the Police were not involved to be informed by him. I was not allowed to ring him anymore and everything had to be put in writing. That he was allowing the Priest the opportunity to reply to the complaint, Instead this Priest set out to slander my name and tell of all the details of the case to the Parishioners and asking them to sign affidavits, in support of him as well as admitting to the allegations to the Parishioners. (Despite the fact he had a meeting with Archbishop Hart on the 8/Nov/06 and confirmed his sick leave officially started on the 25th/Oct/06 and agreed he would absent himself totally from Healesville) One day after my complaint to O’Callaghan

As I was told to stay quiet and not talk to the Parishioners. I later found out this was not the case for the priest as he set out to ruin my reputation by communicating with a lot of parishioner which was occurring to the Priest finally replying months later 3/April/07 to denying all the allegations. As a result of this  O’Callaghan requesting an in-house trial (4/April/07) which Priest was informed he would not receive any criminal charges in this process to both parties(Priest and O’Callaghan) pushing hard for in house trial with confidentiality offered to be put in place to protect all concerned after learning of all the events that had been happening and knowing O’Callaghan offered no safeguards to be implemented for the safety of a child in a court like Process I obtained Legal advice and went to  help …………………

We need the Victoria Government to reviewing sex offences in “Victoria's Crimes Act 1958” with the concept of an offence of grooming implemented.

 We definitely need the “Sex offenders legislation” reviewed and updated

"The purpose of this legislation is to, among other things; require certain offenders who commit sexual offences to keep police informed of their whereabouts and other personal details to reduce the likelihood that they will re-offend, and to facilitate the investigations and prosecution of any future offences that they may commit. The legislation also ensures that registrants cannot work in child related employment." Priest convicted 29th June 2009


I also understand that they are not allowed to loiter around parks or libraries (please correct me if I am wrong)

All the heart ache and frustration to getting my son to be heard and to get this priest on the sex offenders register so he cannot be around children again I was shattered

My argument is why not even within 12 months after Priest was found guilty of indecently assaulting a minor and possession of thousands of pornography pictures and video's. Is this offender allowed to work at a stall in the middle of Chirnside shopping centre?  Not once but twice in the year 2010 (THE STALLS ARE USUALLY SET UP FOR A MONTH OR TWO). I believe this sex offenders register really needs to be reviewed not only are there 100's of children with their families moving through this shopping centre daily but there are also a lot of young teenagers that are vulnerable and alone which are in danger as to the fact they use these shopping centres to hang out especially with the cinema's close by. Because the Priest works there and has no supervision and has his hour lunch break, I see this as a high risk of re-offending again situation. Paedophiles operate in a way that they source out their victims very carefully they are very good at what they do and always find away so they are around children regardless,

  The Judge that presided over my sons case; like I said; I believe the set punishment should be set so it is fair to the victim which I believe was not done; The Priest received 18 months Jail,  suspended for 24 months;to be placed on the sex offenders register and report to the police for15 years; as well as do 50 hours community services and undergo assessment and intervention in consultation with a sex offenders program. (Keep in mind there is no cure for paedophilia)

How can you be found guilty; (the Judge commented that the paedophilia pictures and paedophilia videos were absolutely disgusting) and not receive a jail term. I personally would like him to be under a Judge that sentences punishment fitting for the crime instead of releasing him so he can choose to work in a shopping centre so he can again be around children that are at a vulnerable age of 13; 14 years of age that hangout at a shopping centre. With the work in the stall he is doing and moving from shopping centre to shopping centre throughout Victoria I was informed by one of the employees of this stall their next destination was Ballarat

This is why we need compulsory enforced programs for teacher’s students and parents within all schools in Australia to enforce and help protect our children and help teachers and parents recognise predator behaviour from these predators. That lives among us as their ultimate goal is always to find a position that will allow them to be around children of their preferred choice of age. This Priest age preference or target was13 to 14 year old boy's hence why is he working at a shopping mall where young teenagers hang out is outrages;  no matter what;

  It is up to us to ensure every child has a right to feel safe and be safe. This is why we need good compulsory programs in our schools for teachers; and parents to be taught of predator behaviours and children need to be taught how to keep themselves safe but when they are being groomed and the innocence of the child is used against them all children are vulnerable at one stage or another and it is up to the parents and teachers (adults) to be educated to protect them.


Victoria is the worst state which outlines who is mandated to report. Please help me bring these issues of our legislations which need to be improved. For the safety of our children in Victoria especially when you know how these paedophiles operate. Unfortunately for me I trusted a Church that wanted to keep it quiet by withholding information from me that my son "A MINOR" disclosed. Then when I was finally informed of what my son disclosed 3-4 months later; they started to push immediately for an in-house trial and encouraged to sign a confidentiality AGREEMENT; which I was horrified that my child would have to go to atrial with no safeguards set in place for his well being.

They-(the Melbourne response Mr Peter O'Callaghan) never once encouraged or told me I had the right to seek police assistance, or legal advice outside their process; I found out they operate under canon law not civil law. Please have the mandatory reporting to include all religious and the Melbourne Response so they can't put another family through (or the police force) through this hardship and emotional heartache I had to face as a result of their process; my son and I were never given the opportunity of "natural justice “as what was offered to this Priest; by O’Callaghan notifying this(Priests) solicitors that the police were considering the case in order for him to obtain time to wipe his computers hard-drives clean.

Which ended up costing the police force more time and finances when they tried to retrieve the information of paedophile porn that he had on his computers of thousands of items; images and videos; As this priest set out to slander my name in the community to obtain affidavits to clear his name in the process of disobeying a direct order from Arch Bishop Hart who has no control of the priests when they take it upon themselves to slander an innocent victim who just wanted to protect her child. I was never given the opportunity of "natural Justice" where is the rights and protection for the victims!!! Let alone the justice that the innocent deserve. Priest admitted to and slandered my name to independent parishioners and Yet O’Callaghan Ignored these facts even though it was as a result of the priests own doing; not mine. Yet we were still not acknowledged for justice that should have been fair to the victim and the offender by the offender “not” being tipped off of the police involvement. O’Callaghan still did not acknowledge the fact of a minor nor that the damage the priest was doing to us. O’Callaghan had received letters from Parishioners as a result of his own investigation where the priest had admitted to the offences to them. How can they claim their actions as being fair to all parties by implementing Natural Justice as this is clearly not the case for the victim’s?


I sourced the police SOCCA at Knox and asked for help only to be sent away stating my son of just 14 had, no case. To going away and writing everything up with my solicitor and going back and requesting SOCCA to listen to help me protect my son; and as a result of the trauma and horror of the fight I had to have “just for my son to be heard". Once SOCCA had a clearer picture of the complaint they apologised and acted immediately in pursued the case. It was a devastating and an emotional roller coaster of heartache and despair but as a result of my stubborn streak my son was eventually heard and the Priest is now convicted of indecent assault on a minor` and possession of child pornography.  NO PARENT SHOULD EVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS especially what the Melbourne Response did to my poor child a minor and I

We need action and we need your support in exposing their crimes and the way they try to cover-up as you are not informed of your rights and they want to keep it in-house and under canon law never even contemplating our civil law or the rights of a child that wanted Justice and for this Priest never given the opportunity to do this to another family as the Melbourne Response was clearly informed of this was our wish to the outcome of the report of abuse.

At 01 February 2011 there were 12,478 registered offenders across

How many have not been brought forward to be dealt with by the laws of our state due to the church process and are free in our communities also to add to this figure above 12,478 of who probably have multiple victims

Throughout all the process with the Melbourne Response team I was not given any assistance till after the priest pleaded guilty by the Melbourne Response except in very small amounts of money and offering me only to be told it will come out of any compensation I do receive if I chose to go through there panel. But in doing this they refuse to acknowledge all my complaint as so I don’t get a fair hearing. In sourcing my own support I see O’Callaghan claiming he supplied this and is offering this for free.  Yet when the Psychologists put in their accounts to be paid they are ignored by his office forcing me to claim through medical processes. So that the taxpayers are funding the bill not O’Callaghan, so how is he providing this? He Isn’t!!! But he claims ownership and claim he provided this which is an outright lie, He won’t acknowledge the truth and try’s to intimidate me into a panel Process that in turn will be unjust and unfair as a result of what his team has put me through with their in my opinion the threats and misleading me as well as not putting the rights of the child (a minor) first. O’Callaghan asking me to remove portions of my police statement and that he would be putting in his own medical records as if to justify why the case was delayed for months. There whole process was in my opinion was appalling from day one and it needs to be known so no other poor victim ever has to go through this injustice

This is also evident in this case

Paedophiles and Their Characteristics

Paedophiles have distinct characteristics and their preferred sexual objects are children. Paedophiles often have numerous victims and many claim to have abused hundreds or thousands of children. Paedophiles are narcissistic by nature and their bragging usually comes across as narcissistic. Paedophiles tend to like children of a certain age and they typically do not deviate from their preferred age range. Many prefer girls that are too young to get pregnant. The younger the girls are, the less chance of vaginal infections. Girls are reaching puberty at much younger ages, some as early as the 4th grade. “Eight is too late” is a phrase molesters often use.

Paedophiles also prefer one gender and they typically do not deviate from their preferred choice. There are both heterosexual and homosexual paedophiles, but there are far more heterosexuals paedophiles than homosexuals. In fact, the ratio is 11:1. Paedophiles will make every possible effort to be around children. They choose professions that will allow them to interact with children in their preferred age range. Child molesters have taken positions as youth pastors, boy-scout leaders, coaches, teachers, child-care providers, counsellors, and employees at establishments that serve children. They slowly get to know their targets. They make friends with the child and start the“seduction” process. They try to become the child’s confidant and often offer email addresses, home addresses, and phone numbers. Child molesters remain patient and often have several children they are trying to seduce at the same time.  This type of seduction is all about gaining trust with the child. Children are not attracted to their abusers, but they do start to trust them as a friend. Basically, these molesters get to know the child so well that when they do finally molest their victim they have information to blackmail them. For example, “Don’t you tell or I’ll tell your parents this…” They get to know their victims so well that they know how to manipulate them and confuse them. They essentially become stalkers, but they are not obvious. Paedophiles usually try to establish a great reputation in their communities. Once they have gained a good reputation people do not really pay attention, because they are trusted. This is why the seduction and stalking goes unnoticed.

Paedophiles like to collect things that relate to their sexual perversions. Some examples include pornographic pictures, pornographic videos, and books on sexuality. These items are often introduced to future victims. Remember when we talked about seduction? Well pornographic material is introduced and discussed. This interaction can later be used as blackmail, i.e. “I will tell your parents” or they can use it to confuse the child. Child molesters could say, “Well you acted like you were interested in…so I just tried to show you…it is your fault.” Other items include sex toys, photographic equipment, items for a private darkroom, and any items that children, in the preferred age range, would relate to.

Paedophilia and Types of Paedophiles

Paedophilia is not a curable condition. Paedophiles are sexually obsessed with children and their goal is to get close to children of their preferred age range. Paedophiles' have obsessive-compulsive characteristics and they live within the sexual fantasies they create. Some actually believe that molestation is wanted by the children and that the children enjoy it. However, most know, deep down, that what they are doing is wrong;they just can’t stop.

Paedophiles can be married, single, male, female, bisexual, heterosexual, or homosexual. No matter what their sexual preferences are, paedophiles are often also attracted to adults. A paedophile that is attracted to both children and adults is called a Regressed Offender because they bounce back and forth between an adult sexual relationship and criminally assaulting children. There are two main types of paedophiles', the situational and the preferential. Situational Paedophiles' will go after any group that is defenceless, such as the elderly, the mentally-challenged, the handicapped etc. This type prefers children, but will go after another group if they feel stressed. Preferential Paedophiles' like children in a distinct age group and they typically do not deviate from this age group. Both paedophile groups have different sub-types:


The Situational Paedophile has three subtypes:

The Regressed Paedophile has the most balanced life of all the subtypes. They seek female victims and they enjoy the seduction process. This subtype will use child pornography as part of the seduction process andthey use the Internet to find vulnerable victims. Female children are preferred, but they will go after a defenceless person if the stress in their life becomes too much.

Regressed Paedophiles'   have many potential victims in mind. They take their time and move on the child when they feel safe. Although this type of paedophile is more stable than the others, they usually have insecurity issues and they have a hard time having successful interactions with other adults. This subtype prefers oral and vaginal intercourse.

The Indiscriminate Paedophiles' are calm and often charismatic. They are more dangerous because they will try anything sexually and their main concern is their sexual fun at the victim’s expense. The seduction process is long and tedious. Great care is taken to bond with their future victim. The Indiscriminate Paedophiles enjoys child pornography and they want children as their victims. They try to get to know friends of their victims and those children are usually targeted as their next victim.

The Immature Paedophile comes across as strange or weird. This type is more naive and less manipulative than the other groups. Their victims come from their own neighbourhoods and although they have a preferred age range, they will deviate from it. They are happy fondling their victims, but they prefer anal sex and oral sex. The Immature Paedophile is less stable than the other subtypes and they tend to have a lot of stress to deal with. 

 The Preferential Paedophile has two subtypes:

The Seductive Paedophile is also known as the fixated type. They are usually homosexual men that prefer male victims. Their seduction process involves buying the future victim gifts or helping them with various things. They became a friend the victim can lean on. As the bond grows sexual innuendo is slowly brought in to the relationship. The may show them pornographic pictures or videos. The aim to confuse their victim about sex and then once the abuse begins they blame the victim. They often have friends that are also paedophiles and they network. This network uses the Internet to find victims and search for pornography.They have a list of potential victims and they know where to find them.   (This reminds me of the offending priest)

The Sadistic Paedophile is grotesque when it comes to sexual preferences. They severely abuse their victims and sometimes kill them. They search for the perfect victim and they will travel long distances to gain access to the victim. They stalk and then attack and/or abduct their victim. Their abductions are typically designed to confuse the parents and the authorities. This type of paedophile is usually intelligent and middle to upper class. They like to be on the move and they like change.

Paedophiles'-Child Molesters-Sexual Offenders

Paedophiles, child molesters, sexual offenders…all these names apply to those that stalk and molest our children. They are dangerous and often invisible to us. You can take precautions to protect your children from the unknown child molesters, but you have a great resource for convicted child molesters. The Registered Offender List offers a list of every convicted sexual offender in your city. After entering your address you will receive detailed photos of the child molester, appearance details, a neighbourhood map, street address, aliases, and the complete details of the molester’s conviction. Parents can also sign up to be notified when a child molester moves into their area. We urge you to use our database to keep your children safe.  (we need this implemented in all states in Australia)


o Securing jobs and participating in community events that involve children.

o Volunteering to coach children's sports, thus, having opportunities to befriend the parents and then groom the child.

o Attending sporting events for children, thus, learning which parents are absent during the game. Offering to give the child a ride home.

o Volunteering in youth organizations, volunteering to chaperone overnight trips.

o Frequently coming to places children go - playgrounds, malls, game arcades, etc. Befriending the child, who projects loneliness, offering to buy them treats or small items of interest to the child.


Please help me protect the innocence of children so they have the right to be safe
