Paedophile set free in community

A dangerous paedophile with a history of depraved and repugnant offences has been granted supervised release after a former senior police officer and a civilian WA Police employee supported his return to the community.

Gavin John Wesley was convicted of sex offences against children aged under 13 after two trials in 2002 and has a record of child pornography offences.

His sentences total 17 years jail for the offences that involved prolonged grooming of young children after gaining a position of trust from their families.

A judge described some of Wesley's crimes as depraved and among the worst of their type.

State prosecutors wanted Wesley deemed a dangerous sex offender in March last year as he approached a full term of 11 years and eight months in jail.

But this has taken a year to resolve in the Supreme Court and in the interim, he was granted temporary release on an undertaking approved by a judge.

In a decision on Thursday, Justice Eric Heenan ruled Wesley remained a serious danger but his risk could be adequately managed by a five-year supervision order with 45 conditions.

He revealed that at a hearing in March, Wesley's release was supported by the former senior ranking police officer who had been the paedophile's friend for more than 20 years.

Wesley had been living with the former officer's frail, 93-year-old father in a semi-rural area on Perth's outskirts during his interim release over the past year.

He had been cooking and repairing the home, which the former officer visited every three to four days.
A system was also set up to monitor his computer use.

The civilian police employee, who was a police officer overseas, testified that Wesley had shown good signs of reintegrating into normal society and committed to keep a check on him at all times.

The identities of both men were suppressed to protect them from "unthinking and unjustified attention", Justice Heenan said.

According to official reports apparently the police care for the community, you know reduce the deaths on the road by fining people hundreds of dollars for traveling 3km/h over the speed limit, etc.

Yet, dangerous paedophiles are let out into the community.

How is this part of 'to serve and protect'? It's not.

It's deliberate, to cause anguish and suffering to the community at large.

The police are not there for your protection nor to help you, they are corporate policy enforcers, with guns.
