Shane Anderton cried as he was sentenced for raping a 15 year old girl, he got just 5 years because, amongst other reasons, he has a young family and leaving them would make prison difficult.
Anderton met the young girl at a suburban Perth train station, she had been drinking and was just 15 years old. He told her he was 26 and gained her trust by telling her he could get her some cigarettes.
She then got on a bus and he followed, he sat near her but they didn’t speak to each other. They got off at the same stop and walked to his friend’s apartment where she was given alcohol and some cannabis.
She later walked away under the influence of the substances and Anderton followed, taking the girl by the wrist….. he saw his opportunity and walked her to the bush area where he raped her.
The father-of-four, who has two young children with his current partner, stood trial in the West Australian District Court charged with three offences, but the jury only convicted him of one count of aggravated sexual penetration without consent. (Why doesn’t our legal system just call this rape ? Seriously, why is our system minimizing rape in such an horrendous way ?)
Judge Laurie Levy said that it should have been obvious to Anderton that the girl was affected by drugs and alcohol.
He said the girl resisted both physically and verbally, and Anderton had been indifferent about the girl’s age, although he had not displayed any predatory behaviour????
No predatory behaviour????
Really, it sounds incredibly predatory to us.
Judge Levy said general deterrence and the vulnerability of the victim were significant sentencing factors. She was clearly resisting, she said no and tried to fight him off but Anderton didn’t even slightly care.
Please no victim blaming….
We have seen the comments made about this article elsewhere and we will not allow those kind of excuses to be made for a child rapist on FACAA.
We are aware the girl was drinking underage…. but, that is not an excuse for rape !
Being impaired by alcohol and/or drugs means you are incapable of giving consent,
Being underage means you cannot give consent !
NO CONSENT = RAPE !
End of story, nothing excuses this kind of behaviour.
Judge Levy went on to say, “You did opportunistically take advantage of a young and clearly vulnerable person.”
Anderton covered his face with his hands and wept during the court proceedings… despite the tears, Judge Levy said Anderton, who has a 9 page criminal record and a history of substance abuse, had not showed contrition or remorse.
He said it would be inappropriate to suspend the sentence despite Anderton’s lawyers arguing for a wholly suspended sentence. They argued that because Anderton had not offended again since this offence, he should get a suspended sentence, let’s not go into the fact he has a 9 page criminal history….shall we… His foolish lawyers also argued that he was reformed…
Ahhhh sorry to break this to you gents, but child rapists cannot be reformed or rehabilitated ….and what incentive is there for them to even attempt to change when they haven’t served a day behind bars…
At this point I would like to ask the lawyers who defend these predators, how they sleep at night knowing they are attempting to release self-confessed child rapists, back onto the streets, without so much as a night behind bars.
Well done guys, awesome life choices …. I only hope that your children/grandchildren are never attacked by one of these monsters because I would truly hate for you to find out what it is to have a loved one attacked by one of these monsters you chose to defend.
Anderton must serve at least three years behind bars before he becomes eligible for parole.
Judge Levy took into account the fact that Anderton had 4 children, including 2 young children to his latest partner, and leaving them would make serving time in prison difficult.
Yeah sorry, I don’t think so…. every criminal has a family somewhere, and no prison sentence is easy, that’s sort of the point of doing time, you don’t want to be away from family and friends… no prisoner wants to do it… so therefore it acts as a deterrent…..
That’s a free lesson to all Judges who choose to use these ridiculous excuses for leniency…. brought to you from the good people at FACAA. 😊
Judges.. you may choose to reference this next time you’re hearing a child rapist cry about how hard it will be to go to prison. Never thought I’d have to explain the concept of a deterrent to a judge…..
So, in just 3 short years Shane Anderton can be released from prison, in 33 years his victim will still be living with the memories and trauma of what “he” did to her.
Hardly seems like justice, does it?

Cornelus Bezuidenhout molested a 6 year old girl then told the court “she knew exactly what she was doing and wanted it” He will be deported after serving just 7 months !
This absolutely vile pervert tried to blame his 6 year old victim for him molesting her !
HE IS 75 YEARS OLD !
Once again a child abuser proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they cannot be rehabilitated because they simply do not acknowledge that they have done anything wrong !
A pervert who sexually assaulted a kindergarten student claimed she ‘knew exactly what she was doing’ and ‘wanted it’. Cornelus Bezuidenhout, 75, who claimed to be a ‘good Christian’, made the vile comments to police last January after the girl pleaded with her parents to keep him away.
That’s not very Christian of you Cornelus, not only did you molest one of god’s chosen (the children) and forever traumatize the little innocent angel, but then instead of owning your mistake and asking forgiveness you tried to pass the buck to the 6 YEAR OLD GIRL !
I doubt very highly that Jesus would be behind you on this one !
The South African national – a father of five – who now lives in Melbourne, had been looking after the girl after befriending the parents of his niece’s friend. He had repeatedly molested the child after collecting her from kindergarten, taking her on trips to the park and playing dolls in a bedroom. On one occasion he touched the little girl while he shared a meal with her parents.
The brazen sex offender was caught after his terrified victim pleaded with her parents not to let him come around to their house. ‘He’s not as nice as he seems,’ she warned, telling her shocked parents Bezuidenhout had ‘touched her private parts’.
What an incredibly brave and articulate child, showing courage and wisdom beyond her years.
The child was forced to recount her ordeal to the court just days before Christmas last year, telling a judge her abuser had hurt her. The devout Baptist pleaded guilty to two charges of sexually assaulting a child aged under 16. He had initially denied abusing the girl, telling his wife of 26 years that nothing was wrong.
He continued his outrageous behaviour when questioned by police, telling them the little girl was trouble.
Bezuidenhout blamed his victim for her abuse, telling detectives ‘it was no accident’. ‘It was purely for her, as she wanted it,’ he said. ‘It was a game … she knew exactly what she was doing.’
So firstly A 6 YEAR OLD IS A YOUNG INNOCENT CHILD, SHE WAS NOT ASKING FOR YOU TO SEXUALLY MOLEST HER….AND EVEN IF YOU SOMEHOW MISCONSTRUED WHAT SHE SAID AND YOU THOUGHT SHE WAS ASKING TO BE MOLESTED, … YOU ARE AN ADULT… YOU SAY NO, FOR GOODNESS SAKE ! and secondly CHILD MOLESTATION IS NOT A GAME….. YOU ABHORRENT FREAK !
Bezuidenhout said he abused the girl only to ‘please her’ and that he was a ‘good Christian’ who had been unable to maintain an erection for the past five years. What does that have to do with anything ? You don’t need an erection to be a child sex offender.
He actually had the gall to tell the police-
‘This little girl should know boundaries because she’ll get herself into trouble,’
Umm no Cornelus, it is YOU who should know boundaries and it is YOU who has gotten himself in trouble…. but it is nothing you don’t deserve !
He went on to muse that it was ‘unbelievable a five-year old seduces a 75-year old man’.
County Court of Victoria Judge Gabriele Cannon agreed. ‘The punishment must be just,’ she said.
Judge Cannon condemned Bezuidenhout for his ‘gross breach of trust’ and labelled his comments to police as ‘repugnant’.
‘You knew what you did was wrong … you blame the six-year old victim,’ she said. She sentenced the civil engineer to 22 months in jail, with a non-parole period of 10 months. With time served, Bezuidenhout will likely be deported back to South Africa in a little under seven months.
So Judge Cannon says “the punishment must be just” and then gives him what equates to 7 more months in prison ? Somehow that doesn’t sound very just to me.
Our judges comments suggest that they get the impact that child abuse has on our children, but then their actions speak much louder… when they hand them pathetically lenient sentences which equate to nothing more than a slap on the wrist. This gives the opposite message that our children’s lives are not valued by our society.
We simply must start punishing these vile creatures with much harsher sentences to send a loud and clear message that our children are valued by us and that if you hurt them, you are going to prison for a VERY long time !
One good piece of news is that He will return to South Africa alone after his wife filed for divorce. I guess he’ll blame the little girl for that too.
Cornelus Bezuidenhout you make me physically sick ! You should do everyone a favour when you get back to South Africa and go play with a Hippo ! How dare you try to blame an innocent little child for your sick perversions!
It never ceases to amaze me how arrogant and deluded these disgusting perverts are, blaming an innocent 6 year old for his heinous actions. Unbelievable!

Roxanne Peters was given 9 years behind bars for killing her rapist. Should people who take unlawful revenge on their abuser be shown leniency due to their abusive past ?
A BRISBANE woman has been jailed for killing her rapist after he threatened to harm her daughter unless she submitted to being raped again, she will be eligible for parole in less than two years but should she be in jail at all?
Roxanne Eka Peters, 35, fatally stabbed Grant Jason Cassar, 51, with a blow to his heart using a kitchen knife at her home in Capalaba in December 2015. Then she tied a rope around his body, including his neck, and dragged it behind her car for about a kilometre to a ditch where she hid it.
In the Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday, Peters was sentenced to nine years in jail for manslaughter and a further 18 months after she pleaded guilty to interfering with a corpse.
With time served she will be eligible for parole in June 2020. Justice David Boddice told the court Mr Cassar’s rape and humiliation of Peters, followed by the threats to harm her child, had been a “significant provocation”.
Now we at FACAA firmly believe in what must be done is just and therefore legal and a child MUST always be protected by whatever means necessary, so lets just lay those cards on the table.
Having said that we do not believe in vigilante justice, but this was not the act of a vigilante, it was a mother protecting herself and her child.
Many people have said there is always a better way than murder, of course given reasonable circumstances there is always a better way, but when you and your child are under threat… survival is all that counts.
“I accept the stabbing occurred in circumstances when you were enraged by what the deceased had done to you and was threatening to do to you again,” he said.
It was, however, to Peters’ detriment that she didn’t immediately seek help after the stabbing, he said.
“Instead you set about the process of callously disposing of the deceased body,” he said.
He said Peters had shown no respect for Mr Cassar’s human dignity.
“No doubt your rage continued to affect your attitude to him,” Justice Boddice said.
Justice Boddice said Peters’ upbringing around drug users, where she was subjected to sexual abuse, had exacerbated the rage she felt when Mr Cassar came to her home on the day he died.
FACAA question if a rapist understands the words human dignity… any one capable of threatening a child and raping a woman has no human dignity.
Our question is not of Ms Peters’ guilt or innocence….she has however been given 9 years behind bars and we at FACAA are asking should she be imprisoned at all, due to what she had endured and what he was threatening to do to her and her child.
On the other side of the fence, is taking a life ever ok, should it always result in a prison term ?
Killing someone takes away any chance of bringing them to justice, takes away any possibility of them defending themselves.
Is it not better to seek justice ?
Yes, our legal system is abysmal, but shouldn’t we still seek some form of justice if for no other reason than to get their true face shown to the world…. that is unless of course they get a suppression order.
So what are your thoughts FACAA, should survivors of abuse receive leniency if they go on to kill their abuser ?
Should they receive psychological help instead of prison time?
And if so, what are the ongoing implications…
What do you think ?

So called “rehabilitated” paedophile gymnastics coach Derek Godfrey was convicted in Australia and then the US for child exploitation material charges.
Derek Godfrey was sentenced in the US District Court in Sacramento on Thursday to eight years’ jail for child pornography charges dating back to 2006 in the Californian capital.
The 48-year-old has admitted to being a child pornography addict with “a preference” for nine to 12-year-old girls and over the years caught the attention of authorities in Australia, Europe and the US.
Godfrey claimed before his sentencing he now “has the tools to manage his addiction” after receiving treatment in US and Australian jails. We at FACAA find that statement hilarious because here he is getting released from one prison and being sent directly to another, he is not passing go he is not collecting $200 but he is collecting 97 months behind bars !
The fact is these so called “rehabilitation” programs do nothing, once they cross that line and decide that their lives will be dedicated to the destruction of children’s lives there is no going back, there is simply no fixing them once they make that decision.
Derek Godfrey appealed his original sentence served in Western Australia and was then released and thrown straight into a US prison for committing the exact same crime prior to coming to Australia.
His globe-trotting began in 2006 when US Homeland Security Investigations special agents raided his home in the Sacramento area and found 400 videos and 5,000 still images on his electronic devices depicting the sexual abuse and exploitation of minors.
He was working as a youth gymnastics coach in Sacramento, let that sink in. He was coaching children’s gymnastics with a paedophilic interest in 9 – 12 year old girls that includes bestiality and incest.
The day after the search warrant was executed on his home Godfrey fled the US for the Netherlands but he was also “ultimately involved in pornography” again. He then travelled to Australia where he worked as a gymnastics coach in Perth.
How was he allowed into Australia and then given clearances to coach children’s gymnastics with a warrant out for his arrest on child exploitation material charges ?
Western Australian Police found more than 6000 child sexual abuse images and videos, including incest and bestiality, on Godfrey’s computers when they arrested him in 2012. He was sentenced to a 4.5 year jail term that was later reduced to 3 years by a WA appeals court.
After completing the Australian sentence he was extradited to the US in 2016 to face the possession of child exploitation material charge from the 2006 raid.
Godfrey entered a guilty plea to the US count in March. The 97-month sentence he received was just short of the maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison.
So when he is released in almost 8 years from now, will he be allowed back into Australia to teach gymnastics again ?
Derek Godfrey is clearly a dangerous paedophile, the fact that he hasn’t been arrested and charged with abusing a child yet speaks much more to the fact that he has not yet been caught, rather than he has not yet offended, in our eyes.
Child exploitation material possession shows someone who is dangerous and should never again be allowed near children, especially not in a coaching role…..
The risk is just not worth taking!

Child sexual abuse and exploitation: UN event sheds light on the unthinkable
Serial child rapist Robert John Fardon will be supervised again !
Another win for the children, sanity has prevailed !
The Queensland Attorney-General has won an appeal to extend a supervision order for one of the state’s most notorious rapists, Robert John Fardon. In a judgement delivered in the Court of Appeal this morning, the court was satisfied that there were reasonable grounds for believing Fardon was a serious danger to the community in the absence of a further order.
Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath said she welcomed the decision which would ensure Fardon would continue to be supervised under an interim Community Supervision Order until the court heard the original application at a date yet to be set.
Last month the Supreme Court ruled Robert John Fardon, 69, was no longer a high risk to the community and ordered his full unsupervised release for today, October 3rd.
Fardon’s offending dates back to the 1960s, and over two decades he was responsible for a series of rapes and sexual assaults.
Peter Dunning QC, acting for the Attorney-General, told the Court of Appeal that Fardon remained a “serious danger” to the community. “Within four months of his (original) release he leaves the area without telling his parole officer and the following month, he commits the secondary offending,” Mr Dunning said.
“He’s right that that’s 30 years ago, but the fact is those features of the respondent’s personality … are not things that he has been cured of.
Fardon’s defence barrister Dan O’Gorman SC, argued his client had realised the “error of his ways” and had sworn off alcohol and drugs. “This issue of alcohol and drugs has been looked at … and not one time in that five years has there been any suspicion of him consuming alcohol or taking drugs,” Mr O’Gorman said.
“He has not put a foot wrong.”
Fardon’s defence team argued there had been no evidence of sexual violence since his supervised release from prison in 2013. Mr O’Gorman how can you defend this “man” please don’t give me that, “well someone has to” rubbish, because this is a vile serial child rapist. NO ONE HAS TO DEFEND HIM ! DEFEND THE SURVIVORS OF THE HORRORS HE INFLICTED !!!!!
Since 2013, Fardon’s exact living address has been kept secret, but court documents showed he had been forced to stay with other sex offenders near a jail precinct. FACAA refer to these facilities as “Paedophile Universities” where they sit around and discuss how NOT to get caught. They come out of these places having learnt much from each other..
In September, the Queensland Government pushed tougher laws through State Parliament to ensure repeat child sex offenders were monitored for life. Under the amendments, offenders who were due to expire from the Dangerous Prisoner Sex Offenders list would automatically become a reportable offender.
Offenders now have to regularly report to police, register their home addresses, as well as any contact they have with children. Failure to do so could see them return to prison for up to five years.
Child protection advocate Hetty Johnston said the decision was a surprising win for community safety.
“Hopefully it’s a signal about the judiciary beginning to understand that the community needs to feel safe, needs to have confidence that when they do release these predators, that they’re safe to be released,” Ms Johnston said.
“[Fardon] isn’t someone who’s going to be safe in the community ever — the next step for us is to keep fighting so that these people aren’t released in the first place.
“It’s not good enough that the community has to be scared and kids have to be worried about where this man is living.”
Well said Hetty !
The 69-year-old has a history of sexual offending dating back to the 1960s, and in 1989 he was jailed for raping and assaulting a woman. He was due to be released in 2003, but law changes allowed authorities to keep him behind bars In 2003, until he was granted supervised release in 2007.
The following year he was charged with rape and found guilty, but the conviction was later overturned on appeal. Since 2013, Fardon’s exact living address has been kept secret, but according to court documents, he has been forced to stay with other sex offenders near a jail precinct.
Sharon Tomlinson was the 12-year-old who was raped by Fardon in 1978, and over the years she has spoken out about her fears if he was to be released.
“He stole my innocence. He took a part of me I can never ever get back,” she told ABC Radio Sunshine Coast on Tuesday. “I don’t know where he is and I’ll never know where he is. There could be a likelihood that I could run into him on the street. That’s quite frightening for anyone that’s gone through something like that.”
This is certainly a better outcome for the kids of Australia than the freedom he looked like receiving just a matter of days ago, however this wouldn’t be an issue if Fardon had been imprisoned for the rest of his natural life, a sentence he definitely deserved after the trauma he caused his victims and their families.
