Man fails to comply with reporting

A 54-YEAR-OLD Maryborough man had his suspended jail sentence period extended after he failed to comply with reporting obligations under the Sexual offenders Reporting Act.

The retiree pleaded guilty and was convicted in 2007 of two counts of rape and one count of indecent dealing of a child. The victim was his grand-daughter.

The man was sentenced to a jail term, which was suspended for four years.

He was brought before the Maryborough District Court for breaching his suspended sentence.

The court heard he failed to notify authorities of a new home he had lived at on and off between January and March this year.

All convicted sex offenders have to report in person to authorities annually and provide all places of address.

Judge Julie Ryrie extended the suspension period of the man’s jail sentence for another two months.
