John Burns was arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a 13 year old girl while on bail for charges that are almost exactly the same.
Stop releasing child abusers !
They will strike again !
Do our courts not ever learn, child sex offenders csnnot be trusted to be of good behaviour, no matter how many conditions you apply to their bail or parole.
Anthony Sampieri….He was let out on parole and then bang he was allegedly found naked, choking and sexually assaulting a 7 year old girl in a Kogarah dance studio toilet!
Why do we trust child sex offenders? They simply cannot be trusted ever, once they cross that line and hurt a child they will never again be safe around children.
The risk is just not worth taking and it’s time our courts realised that and stopped playing with our children’s lives.
A man accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl was already on bail for similar child sex charges.
John Blair Burns, 28, was stopped by police early on Sunday morning while driving in Cardiff, north of Sydney, with the young girl and a 16-year-old boy in the car.
He was arrested on breach of bail conditions and taken to Toronto Police Station where the teenage girl later alleged she had been sexually assaulted by Burns and detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad were called in. Burns was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a victim under the age of 16, procuring a child under 14 for unlawful sexual activity and breach of bail.
He allegedly used the social media app Snapchat to contact the young girl for 12 months before sexually assaulting her in his home at Glendale, near to where he was stopped by police.
Burns had been arrested in April of this year and was charged with nine offences, including five counts of having sexual intercourse with a person aged between 14 and 16, (that would be rape), possessing child abuse material and impersonating a police office, Seven News reported.
He was denied bail by Griffith Local Court, in the New South Wales Riverina, at the time but the decision was overturned by the New South Wales Supreme Court in October.
Why was it overturned by the Supreme Court ?
Will the Supreme Court now be held accountable for this new crime ?
They knew he was dangerous because the Griffith local court had denied his bail, and yet they released him anyway ?
Surely it’s time that courts and parole boards are held accountable for these decisions which go against recommendations and result in further crimes against our children.
Only then will they take their jobs seriously and make the safety of our kids the priority it should be !
Burns’ bail conditions were strict, they included not going within 100km of Griffith, a curfew from 8pm to 8am, reporting to police twice a day and not using the internet and social media, but strict conditions mean nothing if you intend to breach them.
The house he was ordered to live in whilst he was on bail, was according to 7 news, next to schools. How ridiculous… did anyone even bother to check the location?
We cannot trust these perverted sex offenders to be good citizens, they are not going to behave, so it is up to us to ensure they are not capable of harming children.
That means to start with NO BAIL and NO EARLY PAROLE fullstop.
Bail had been opposed by police for a good reason, it was denied by Griffith Court for a good reason and yet the Supreme Court believed they knew better…..
and now another young girl has been allegedly sexually assaulted.
Her family have every right to be angry that he was given the opportunity to abuse their child.
Yesterday, Burns had his bail revoked in Toronto Local Court following the latest charges.
A little late, but better than never I suppose.
‘No pleas were entered to the fresh charges and no application was made for bail,’ Burns’ lawyer Bryce Morrison told reporters outside the court.
Bryce have you ever considered that there are certain clients you should just say no to representing, like this one perhaps ?
When will we stop letting child abusers out of prison ? We simply cannot trust them around our children. Time and time again they get let out and time and time again they hurt more children, enough is enough…. just stop letting them out of prison !
Prime Minister Scott ‘ScoMo’ Morrison recently said that a priority of the Australian system would be to keep children safe and ensure that there are no systems in place that help cover up abuse of children, well ScoMo tell that to your judges, mate !
John Burns is just another example in a long line of alleged child abusers who are released on bail or parole and just continue to hurt children. They are entirely unrepentant, not even slightly remorseful for their crimes as they don’t see what they do as being even slightly wrong… so why would they show remorse ?
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian stated in relation to the bail laws “If there is more we have to do, we will and of course our priority is to make sure that people who should be behind bars are there.”
We hope you mean that Premier, because believe us, there IS much to do…..
Starting with NO BAIL for sex offenders
and NO EARLY PAROLE.
We must stop letting them out, they can’t be rehabilitated and they won’t stop hurting our kids.
We need to stop making it so damn easy for them!
