A dirty disgusting old man (who happens to train racehorses)had sex with 12 year old girl. One angle of defence it seems, is she said or seemed older? She was bloody 12 years old. He was 62, if she was 30, it was still disgusting. Sucking her in with her love for the horses he trained, he abused her over 20 months. Sounds like the cops have him self incriminating in telephone conversations to the girl. You make me sick you old pervert and have shamed your family.I hope to god you have no grandchildren, who once upon a time may of looked up to you. Filthy old man!
UPDATE 23/12/10 Well Barry David Winchester, you have not wiggled out of this trial and you are now a convicted perverted dirty old man. 12 years will not be enough, so I hope you suffer at the fate of your fellow criminals for a few years and then drop dead and save the taxpayers some money. There are too many things much more important than spending a dollar on a rock spider like you, a snake belly, there are not many much lower than you and your kind
FORMER south-east Queensland racehorse trainer Barry David Winchester who preyed on a young girl’s love of horses to coerce her into a 20-month sexual relationship was today found guilty on 21 child sex charges.
The 62-year-old will face up to 12 years’ jail after a District Court jury in Brisbane took just over a day to find him guilty of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child, six counts of rape, two counts of carnal knowledge, four of indecent dealing, three of attempted indecent dealing, two of procuring indecent dealing, two of common assault, and one of attempted rape.
UPDATE 8/12/10 He not only abused her himself, he pimped her out to buddies too. I will get more on this story.Anyone with a photo of this bloke please contact me confidentially via my email [email protected]
A District Court in Brisbane jury was today told the trainer also allegedly forced the girl into engaging in sexual acts with at least two other men who in return paid him cash for her services, The Courier-Mail reports.
Prosecutor Chris Minnery, in his opening to the jury, said the trainer took the girl, who “loved horses” and was then aged 12, on as a stable hand and offered to give her a large horse if she provided him with sexual favours.
He allegedly told the girl: “You can have a horse … if you (perform a lewd act).”
The trainer today pleaded not guilty to 29 charges mainly sexual offences including seven counts of rape, allegedly committed over almost two years.
The jury was told the alleged offences – committed when the girl was aged between 12 and 14 – also include one count of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child, two of unlawful carnal knowledge, and numerous counts of indecent treatment of a child.
Mr Minnery said the trainer used threats, violence and the promise of owning the horse to control or force the girl into participating in sex acts or performing them on him.
He said the girl did not have an ideal home life and was drawn to the stables due to her love of horses.
The jury was told the majority of the alleged offences occurred at the trainer’s home, at the stables, or in his car.
Mr Minnery said the trainer asked the girl to do a “favour” for two male friends, who in return gave him money upon completion of sex acts.
He told the jury they would also see diaries kept by the girl, which include “heartbreaking” tales of offences allegedly committed on her by the trainer.
The jury was told the man admitted having sex with the girl during “pretext calls”, recorded by police.
“Don’t you want to be with me? I like you,” Mr Minnery said the trainer told the girl during one call.
He said when the girl told the man she was “a bit young” for him, he replied: “Oh —-, that didn’t matter when we were having sex together.”
Barrister John Fraser, for the trainer, told the jury they should listen to all the evidence before considering the Crown case.
“There are two sides to every story and is important you don’t jump to conclusions,” Mr Fraser said.
The proposed two-week trial before Judge Marshall Irwin continues.
Barry David Winchester, 62, of Deagon, abused the girl – who cannot be named – over a 20-month period from January 2007, prosecutor Chris Minnery told the Brisbane District Court today.
Mr Winchester has pleaded not guilty to 29 charges, including seven of rape, six of indecent treatment of a child and one of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child.
During the crown’s opening, the court was told the abuse started after the girl, then aged 12, went to watch Mr Winchester train horses.
He allegedly told her he would give her a horse if she performed a sexual act on him, the court was told.
“She does what she’s told and it’s there, on the crown case, that the threats and abuse started,” Mr Minnery said
He told the court the crown would allege Mr Winchester systematically abused the girl by “feeding her interest in horses”.
The court was told Mr Winchester coerced the girl into performing sexual favours with him, and with others while he watched or charged money.
Mr Minnery said the girl reported the abuse to police after one of Mr Winchester’s associates accused her of stealing horse equipment from the stables.
He told the jury they would hear “incredibly incriminating” evidence from a phone call police recorded between Mr Winchester and the girl.
During that call, Mr Minnery said, Mr Winchester essentially admitted to the crime.
However, Mr Winchester’s defence barrister John Fraser said there would also be a large amount of evidence that cast doubt on the girl’s story.
He also said the court would hear evidence the girl had pretended she was older than she actually was. (Stretching it a bit, she was 12 at the start of it,Did he think she was 25?)
The girl’s evidence will be given via a pre-recorded DVD, which runs for more than 12 hours.
The trial has been set down for two weeks.
