My story: sentencing

I spoke about the court process yesterday. To round out the month, I’ll talk briefly about the charges I received and the sentencing for them. As I said in my post about getting caught, I was arrested due to my habit of taking candid photos of teenage girls I saw in public. The initial charge […]

My story: the court process

I haven’t spoken about court yet, so let’s touch on that now. Like the majority of criminal cases, mine was dealt with entirely through Magistrate’s Court. The court system operates like a funnel, or a sieve. Typically, cases are initially raised in the Magistrate’s Court, and most matters are completed there, too. A few cases […]

My story: dealing with Corrections

One component of my sentence was a two year Community Corrections Order (CCO). Whereas the role of Police is to investigate and prosecute crimes committed (past), Corrections is focused on community-based supervision of offenders, providing oversight to reduce the risk of re-offending (future). In addition to basic conditions like not offending and not leaving the […]

My story: dealing with lawyers

After giving an intro, and talking about getting caught and being arrested, now it’s time to talk about my experience with lawyers. Basically, I didn’t know where to start, but I knew I’d need some advice. By searching online, I came across a firm that specialises in criminal defence. They caught my eye because they […]

My story: dealing with bail

One of the bits of paperwork I got after the arrest was to outline bail conditions. Whilst annoying at times, especially on nights where I wasn’t staying at home and therefore had further to travel to reach the designated Police station, I’d say dealing with bail was one of the easier parts of this whole […]

My Story: the arrest

In an earlier post, I spoke about getting caught taking photos of a girl in a shopping centre after her mother noticed me. I spent a while concerned about what I had done, and worried about the possibility of further consequences. Sadly, I soon drifted back into complacency and resumed taking photos. It would take […]

Attraction to women

In my previous post, I spoke about my attraction to pubescent girls, and indeed, that’s my primary attraction. But I am also attracted to older females, too – both adolescent girls and women my own age. My ex might dispute this last point. In her view, my offences were not just a betrayal of trust, […]

My story: getting caught

As I said in an earlier post, my convictions were related to taking candid photos of pubescent girls. Whilst candid photography itself is not technically illegal (we’ve all seen street photography, where photographers capture shots of people who are unaware), context makes a difference, and so, too, do circumstances. In my case, there was an […]

My story: an introduction

I guess I can’t put it off any longer. There’s no point having a blog about hebephilia, sex offences and sex offender treatment if I don’t tell you a bit about myself and what I’ve done, even if it is an uncomfortable topic… So, here goes: I’m a forty something male from Melbourne, Australia, and […]
