Robert Emmett, judges’ son, likely to avoid jail after conviction for child abuse material


Oh how sweet it is to have family like this sick bastard has. The black sheep from one of Australia’s most distinguished families of judges is likely to avoid jail, despite being convicted of possessing child abuse material. Possession of 10,000 sickening images as well as sneaking around trying to up-skirt while “He tied his shoelaces” Friggin pathetic, as if his family ties have not been laid bare in this case.

Robert Emmett was arrested for possessing more than 10,000 child abuse images

A former teacher from one of Australia’s most distinguished families of judges is likely to avoid jail, despite being convicted of possessing child abuse material.

Robert Emmett, son of NSW Court of Appeal judge Arthur Emmett and Federal Circuit Court judge Sylvia Emmett, was arrested in 2013 for possessing more than 10,000 child abuse images, some involving bestiality, pain and humiliation.

Emmett’s grandfather is Sir Laurence Street, former Chief Justice of the NSW Supreme Court, a position also held by his father Sir Kenneth Street and his father Sir Philip Street.

Robert Emmett, a former maths teacher at St Andrew’s Cathedral School, today pleaded guilty to charges that included filming the private parts of children and possessing child abuse material.

In the NSW District Court, a sentencing judge said Emmett was remorseful and had no prior convictions.

The court heard Emmett walked around St Andrew’s filming some students on his camera phone and, on one occasion, pretended to tie his shoelace while crouching down to film up a girl’s dress at Town Hall Station in the CBD.

Some images in the ‘worst category of abuse’

District Court judge Ian McClintock said some of the images found in Emmett’s possession were in the “worst category of abuse”, involving pain, bestiality and humiliation and that some involved children as young as four.

The court heard the images were photos and videos, but it was not clear how he acquired all of them.

“There is no evidence the child abuse material was for anything but personal use,” the judge said, adding that some of the images were disturbing.

He said Emmett secretly videoed three schoolgirls aged 14.

“In my view it is a significant aggravating feature that the offender was a school teacher,” the judge said, noting that Emmett abused his position of trust.

He referred to the “significant violation” of the students’ rights.

Judge McClintock said Emmett’s family was not aware of his activities and that the 38-year-old had a good support network to help with his rehabilitation.

The court heard Emmett was remorseful, timid and shy and would need to be in a high level of protective custody in jail.

It heard the publicity surrounding the case had been humiliating for the offender and his family.

“He’s lost his career,” the judge said.

“Nothing other than a sentence of imprisonment is warranted.”

But Judge McClintock emphasised a sentence of less than two years was appropriate and therefore the offender is suitable to be assessed for an Intensive Correction Order — meaning he may be able to serve his sentence in the community.

Emmett remained on bail and will return to court in July.

He faced a maximum sentence of 10 years for possessing child abuse material and a maximum of five for filming a person’s private parts.

  1. If this c..t isn’t jailed for life because of his family connections, then there is no such thing as justice.
    I hope this thing is tracked down,raped and tortured and dumped in the gutter.

    • fully agree, if he has 10,000 pics of children there already is a protest list of 10,000 signatures ( parents) at least, to make sure this case gets TOP profile and he is jailed. Hope everyone signs some petition should he escape imprisonment.

  2. Hi Robbo,
    Absolutely appalling. To say the least. If it was anyone else they would be jailed. Ostracised for eternity. We all know the upper eschalons are largely corrupt. Bet the Crown doesn’t appeal.
    There is one law for them and their pollie mates and another for everyone else.
    Thanx fr drawing our attention to them. Hoik-thwwwt..

  3. The Judge has the vested power by the sentencing act of the crown to sentence this paedophile to 10 Years on the 10000 sick disturbing child molestation image photo’s and a additional 5 years maximum for the filming of a persons genitals without their consent . But as is always the usual case by the judges, the maximum sentence of imprisonment will never be handed out. And the usual mercy, suitability for rehabilitation and welfare and high level of protective custody of the creepy twisted paedophile offenders, is all the judges are concerned about. The judge says this shylock mongrel is suitable for a petty intensive correction order or a community based order, working of his sentence in the community under a secret identity to protect his real identity, from other community based correction inmates. Probably put him to work in a art gallery or sweeping the court house steps!… Talk about double standards. some prisoners have to do many years if hard jail for a white collar or non violent crime, while other inmate who have legal judiciary connections get a slap on the wrist.
    What is the point of the sentencing act , giving a judge the power to enforce a maximum sentence of more than 10 plus years to one inmate, while to a different inmate he gives them a lenient sentence to serve working under protection in the community. These judges work and hand out their sentences in ivory towers. The sentencing powers should be handed over to the prosecution, when a defendant is found guilty by the jury. The judges are far to soft and lenient with their sentences on far too many criminals.

    Only yesterday a judge sent a dangerous scumbag violent murdering mongrel :Daniel Veerman to jail for pleading guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter for the poultry sentence of only 7 years minimum and 9 years maximum. This same mongrel had previously killed another person and got 3 years non parole. So why isn’t he being now jailed for life, never to be released. The judge has took into consideration his mental state ,that he was on the drug ICE, and has mental health problems which had compromised his judgement and his paranoid psychosis by reasons of insanity, the usual excuses for the bad and mad, so the judge gives him only 7years. For killing two people. Do the maths- 25 years for murder x 2 = 50 years. Or 10 years for manslaughter x 2 = 20 years. So where in hell does the judge equate a 7 year sentence for 2 acts of manslaughter.
    This must be why the judges earn so much money, because they save the prison system so much money by handing out short sentences for horrible crimes. The sentencing of criminals for indictable crime in Australia is a travesty of justice to the silent voices and so many victims of crime!…Victims of crime should have the final say on a criminal sentence to serve in prison!

    Their is no deterrence to committing crime in Australia, that’s why there is so much of it every day. The crims know even if the murder, with a good defence lawyer it can be down played to manslaughter and get just a few years jail. And another problem the judges start off their legal careers defending low life criminals, and this shows in their later sentencing leniency to hand out light sentences when they are given the power by the crown to sentence criminals. They put mercy and rehabilitation over deterrence and punishment!
    And the look after their own, when the stuff up and commit a very serious indictable crime.

  4. Can’t believe this, people should really protest these double standards and get him jail time with the general population. Throw him in with the big boys lol
    But no instead we have to just sit back and wait for this rock spider reoffend. To me it sounds like he was getting close to being a full blown pedo and his behaviour was getting more seedy by the day. Child exploitation is to me the worst crime and our society is being let down and our kids put at risk by having him out in the community. He’s a creepy little pervert and his wife must have known something was going on..

  6. The judiciary of so many out of touch sentencing judges and the holy than now wolves in sheep’s clothing of the Catholic church protecting their deviates in paedophile rings and the past catholic private school masters. Have so much in common. They don’t give a shit about the suffering ruined lives of the victims. The Legal system and the churches only concern is empathy and helping to repent and have sympathy for the devils, the found guilty. Names like David Edmond Rapson , Gerald Ridsdale, Robert Best, – Ridsdale being a close friend of Archbishop, later Cardinal George Pell , did his best in his high position in the Catholic church , with the Catholic churches legal team to cover up and make the serial sex offending priests more worthy of rehabilitation than for the pity and sad outcomes of many untold victims of his monk brothers to later go on an commit suicide because they were damaged silent victims for many years. The Catholic hierarchy is now saying sorry to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which will begin its hearings in Ballarat . Ballarat Victoria was home to some of the worst notorious paedophiles of the Catholic Church. Which is also where George Pell’s good mate Gerald Ridsdale who committed 195 child rapes and sex attacks and 54 victims as young as 4- years-old , and another Ballarat Christian Brother- deviate mongrel- Robert Charles Best who committed 40 sexual offences against students as young as 8- years-old.

  7. “SURVIVORS OF CHILD SEX ABUSE IN BALLARAT WILL TELL THEIR STORIES TODAY”
    “THIS IS OUR MOMENT”
    SURVIVORS of child sexual abuse by Catholic clergy in Ballarat, Victoria say their evidence to a royal commission , beginning today , will cause outrage.
    Victims of predator Catholic Priests – Steve Woods, 53, Andrew Collins,47, Paul Lyons,55 and Peter Blenkiron,52, say their evidence of what went on locally in the 1960s and 1970s would be “brutal and horrific” and would help expose the full extent of the Catholic Church scandal.

    “Our stories are shocking, and when people hear them in detail at these Ballarat Royal Commission hearings, there is going to be anger and upset”, victim spokesperson Mr Woods said.
    “Its time for the full truth about what happened in Ballarat to be heard — and it’s not going to be easy to hear.
    “So many of us were beaten and raped in the school by men our parents trusted the most”, he said.
    “But this is our moment and we deserve for our voices to be heard in the very town where it happened”.

    The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Institutional Response to Child Abuse may also hear testimony from victims that raises the issue of whether “Cardinal George Pell ” knew or heard anything of Catholic Church clergy misconduct while he was living at “St Alipius Presbytery” in Ballarat, Victoria, sources have said.

    Up to ’50 suicides’ have been linked to the abuse and victim Mr Woods, who was abused at “St Alipius Primary School “, said the group of friends also victims, felt “lucky to be alive”.
    His brother, Anthony Wood, who also attended “St Alipius”, died from AIDS – Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, at 33 after his life “spiralled into a world of drug abuse”. “Like my brother , so many of those abused couldn’t cope with the memories and confusion “, Mr Woods said.
    “The worst part was, until we started the victims support group, so many of us thought we were totally alone”, he said. “We had no idea the abuse was so widespread because those who attacked us , beat us into keeping quiet.
    “So many victims later took their own lives because they tragically thought they were perverted or had done something wrong themselves “, Mr Woods said.
    The men say it’s thanks to forming the victims support group, which is now run by Ballarat’s Centre Against Sexual Abuse, that they have been able to “begin to heal” by sharing their experiences and receiving regular counselling.

    The Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Institutional Response to Child Abuse will begin three weeks of hearings in Ballarat today. They will focus on “St Alipius Parish and Primary School”, led by jailed former Catholic Priest Gerald Ridsdale and four Christian Brother Teachers, who all later faced child abuse charges, as well as “St Patrick’s College; St Patrick’s Christian Brothers Boy’s ‘ Primary School; and St Joseph’s Home”, which closed in 1980.

    The inquiry is due to hear from up to 100 witness.

  8. “SURVIVORS ‘ STORIES :CHILD SEX ABUSE INQUIRY REVIVES PAINFUL MEMORIES”

    ‘FIVE VICTIMS CALL FOR RECONITION , JUSTICE AND A NATIONAL SCHEME TO SUPPORT SURVIVORS’
    Instead of this Government doing the right thing , they have re-traumatised victims and survivors.
    Anonymous sexual abuse survivor.

    As the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse begins its first public hearing in Ballarat, five victims have called for recognition ,justice and a national scheme.

    During the 1960s and 1970s, a notorious paedophile ring preyed on children in the regional Victorian city of Ballarat.
    Catholic priest Gerald Ridsdale , Brother Robert Best, Brother Ted Dowlan and Brother Stephen Frances Farrell were among the convicted paedophiles who operated in the area.

    Beginning on Tuesday,May 19 and continuing for the next three weeks, the royal commission will hear evidence from survivors of abuse at Catholic Church institutions in Ballarat.
    They will hear evidence from students, parents and other witnesses, as well as the response of five Catholic institutions to clergy abuse.
    Many of the victims hope to achieve a sense of justice, but they are also calling for reform, and these five men insist the Government must act now.
    Just one of the victims Peter Blenkiron, 52 from Ballarat explains when he was abused by a Christian Brother Edward Dowlan at St Patricks Secondary School when he was only 11-years-old. He say the trauma was a ticking time bomb!… He said he has seen other victims struggling with severe depression and suicide! Mr Blenkiron said “I have lost everything: I lost my business, I lost relationships that were important to me, I lost property. I battled the suicide option for 12 years. I’m a broken man”, he said.
    Cardinal George Pell previously vowed that the “Catholic Church would review its compensation payments, even if it cost hundreds of million of dollars”.
    But in March , the Federal Government made a submission to the royal commission rejecting a national support scheme because of the time and resources it would require, an announcement the devastated Mr Blenkiron. “Obvious the relationship between Pell and (Prime Minister Tony) Abbott is more important than sorting out the damage that was caused by child rape from members of the clergy, that was known about all those years by the hierarchy of the church”, he said. “I believe that the people that could make those decisions believe it’s easier to do nothing and let the problems die away”! “Hitler used the gas chamber; this Government is using time to just to just let people die”!… “The blood is on their hand”!…
    Ballarat sexual abuse victims – ‘Landscape of death ‘- to tell the Royal Commission suicide rate is “higher than the road toll”!….”Victoria Police has estimated at least 40 victims of clerical sexual abuse in Ballarat have committed suicide!…”That number continues to grow”!…

  9. “OUR LIVES HAVE BEEN LIVING HELL”
    ‘ABUSE SURVIVORS TELL OF NIGHTMARE EXISTENCE AT CATHOLIC ABUSERS ‘HANDS’
    GORDON Hill was offered a return plane ticket from his home, outside Perth, to come back to Ballarat to tell the world of his ruined childhood.
    He drove.
    “It took two days”, the 72-year-old told the Herald Sun yesterday, arriving at Ballarat’s Law Courts in cowboy hat and black leather jacket. ” I only stopped for petrol and a few snacks. “I didn’t sleep “. He made the 3300km road trip, he says, to give himself time to think and, more importantly , to make a point.
    To himself. And to the Catholic Church.
    “I was determined to get here under my own steam, to show that I’m strong, that they didn’t break me when I was a child”, he said.
    Those attending yesterday’s second day of hearings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Reponses to Child Sexual Abuse thought nothing could be worse than the harrowing testimonies of six men who shared their stories on the first day. We were wrong.

    Mr Hill told of arriving from Melbourne, at age three, at St Joseph’s Orphanage, or “St Joey’s”, as he called it. He told of suffering abuse at the hands of the home’s ‘nuns and priests’ — abuse that was so sexually extreme it cannot be published on the media.
    It can be reported in his evidence that he was also tortured and turned into a child slave, or “drone” as the victim called it.
    He said he was once punished by being put in a putrid “dungeon” for a month and was repeatedly raped in a “horror room”.
    Over time, seven of his teeth were pulled out with pliers, and he was beaten until he passed out, he said. “I have scars on my waist straight across where I was beaten, and I was bruised everywhere”, he said, through frequent tears.
    But Mr Hill was strong. He read out every word of his statement himself — just as he’d planned.

    Later, so too did David Ridsdale, the nephew of the now jailed Father Gerald Ridsdale, 80, the main perpetrator of the sexual abuse in Ballarat. He, David Ridsdale too, had made a lengthy
    journey , from his home in the United Kingdom, for his 60 minutes in the witness box.
    With incredible eloquence and composure, he told how his very own uncle had groomed him and sexually abused him until he was 15.
    His resulting confusion over family loyalty and sexuality led to depression and suicidal thoughts, he said.
    The first female witness was a broken-hearted mother, Helen Watson , whose adopted son, Peter, was abused by a priest as a teenager. He went missing for six years, and was later found to have hung himself.
    “I’ve lost my son, my life , my happiness”, she said.

    As the witnesses left the hearings and left town last night, bound for Melbourne, Perth and beyond, they may have caught a glimpse of a candlelight “vigil for abuse victims” at the St Alipius Catholic Church on Victoria Street Ballarat.
    While the priest there hopes to bring light and healing to a community that was once the epicentre of paedophile activity, this may yet be a long way off for those still on a journey of grief , pain and darkness — a journey that, for the victims, may be without end.

  10. “ROYAL COMMISSION ”
    “ABUSE VICTIM ALLEGES CARDINAL TRIED TO BRIBE HIM TO KEEP QUIET”

    “HEAT ON PELL”
    Australia’s most senior Catholic Cardinal George Pell, who is being urged by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse at Ballarat Victoria, to break his silence on explosive claims that he tried to bribe a victim of abuse to stay quite.
    The commission also heard allegations yesterday that Cardinal Pell had refused to act after another victim warned him of widespread sexual abuse of young boys in 1993. These two incidents occurred — almost 20 years apart, it is inconceivable the denials , yet then Father and later Bishop George Pell as the former Ballarat Bishop and another Ballarat Bishop Ronald Mulkearns say they did not know about it, the sexual abuse, under their watch at the time. — meaning Cardinal George Pell must return home from the Catholic Church Vatican in Rome to Australia to give evidence on whether , over the period , he and another Ballarat Former Bishop Ronald Mulkearns had inside knowledge of the horrific sexual abuse crisis that has destroyed hundreds of lives.
    They also say he must explain whether he was part of the Catholic Church’s cover – up.

    Commission chairman Justice Peter McClennan said a formal request would likely be made asking Cardinal Pell to respond to the allegations.
    He warned Peter Gray , SC, for church authorities that if Cardinal Pell did not clarify his position , then the Royal Commission could make findings against him.

    Cardinal Pell has consistently said he didn’t know about offending by fellow clergy including Father Gerald Ridsdale , with whom he lived in 1973, until that offending was made public.
    One victim , told the inquiry yesterday that the then Father Pell had come close to walking in in him being abused.
    “I saw the back of Father Pell, but did not know if he saw me and Father Ridsdale or not”.

    Victims say Cardinal Pell’s previous past testimony at a Royal Commission via video link was inadequate and “insulting” to victims.
    He has historically in person supported offenders in court, but he hasn’t supported the survivors at all. But when he was a Bishop in Melbourne in 1993, he stood by and supported Father Gerald Ridsdale in what he called a priestly act of solidarity, when he was in court facing child rape charges!…

  12. “MULKEARNS HIDES IN GETAWAY”
    THE man with the power to unlock secrets surrounding sex abuse within the Catholic Church is maintaining a stony silence as Royal Commission hears more claims of a Catholic church cover – up.
    Father Ronald Mulkearnes continues living his peaceful life at a property with multi -million -dollar views of the Great Ocean Road , while at the Royal Commission in Ballarat abuse victims relive their nightmare ordeals.
    Waving to neighbours outside his coastal property hideaway, the former Catholic Bishop of Ballarat , appeared yesterday to be a man without a worry in the world.
    But cowering inside his home to avoid questions from the media. The former Priest and Bishop in charge of Ballarat Catholic Institutions where all the sexual abuse took place for years under his watch a man in his 80’s retreated behind a wall to avoid questions.
    Father Gerald Mulkearnes moved to the coast after a long career with the Catholic Church.
    He was Bishop in charge at Ballarat when young children were subjected to the evil of convicted sex pests Gerald Ridsdale, Brother Robert Dowlan and Father Paul Ryan.

    It has been claimed that Father Mulkearnes destroyed documents relating to child sexual abuse, and that he moved known sex offenders to other parishes.
    Minutes presented as evidence at the Royal Commission this week showed Father Gerald Mulkearnes was presiding over a meeting attended by Father then Bishop Pell, later Archbishop and the now the Vatican Cardinal George Pell , at which they discussed the need to move the worst notorious known of paedophile sexual abusing Priest Gerald Ridsdale at Ballarat to another Catholic Church, where he continued to sexually offend against more child victims in many more Catholic Churches around Australia ,where he was posted to, after his offending at the Ballarat Catholic Institutions of his so many heinous child rape crimes.
    But the Vatican Cardinal this week from Rome, claimed Ballarat Bishop Mulkearnes ” did not raise paedophilia allegations against Father Gerald Ridsdale at the Consultors meetings I attended, or at anytime before or after”. he said.
    But while Father Ronald Mulkearnes hides inside his seaside getaway, the truth could remain locked away!…

    “I was picked up while hitchiking in the Hume highway in the early 1990s by a dangerous man and it wasn’t Ivan Milat” …..? submitted by Anon on Sun, 10/01/2010 – 8.39pm. – I believe this incident was related to the Belanglo murders and I believe this….. murders in Australia, and unsolved murders (Tynong North). – He was an eerie type of person , around six foot tall and fit, broadish shoulders . This would fit with Paul Onion’s original description of a man of 6 foot which he later changed at the request of police because it did not fit Ivan Milat’s description . I believe the real killer had me that night. He asked me questions that unnerved me. The further we drove the more terrified I got and the more certain I was that he was going to kill me. Nearing the Mittagong off ramp he reached under his seat apparently for his weapon. He kept feeling around under there for it and he could not find it. I believe for this reason , that the gun was not there , he decided to let me out. As I was getting out he said ” This is the luckiest day of your life” in a way that made my skin crawl. I stood by the road and tried to get another lift. I felt if someone was watching me. a car stopped for me . I looked behind me and there was the driver whose car I had just got out of. He had been stalking me and somehow come around behind me. If that second car had not stopped I believe I would not be here today. I believe this incident was related to the Belanglo murders and I believe this was the same person who picked up Paul Onion’s who he described quite differently before the police asked him to alter description to fit Ivan Milat. I am six foot tall and very solid , not easily frightened but I was very shaken and still white and shaking when I reached my sisters house in Canberra. I contacted police regarding the backpacker murders and was interviewed. They told me it was not related to the Belanglo cases. I believe this because it would throw doubt on their case against Ivan Milat. I have been in touch with the ex wife of the other major suspect in the Belanglo murders who lives in Wollongong and the photo and the photo of that suspect does not fit the man who picked me up that night either. ………….? The victim finishes his statement by saying … “I hope Ivan remains strong and I hope the truth comes out! …..? New South Wales – Ivan Milat backpackers murders.
    PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT MY OPINION , I AM ONLY WRITTING IN BRIEF WHAT THIS ANONYMOUS WRITER HITCHIKER VICTIM WROTE AND STATED ON THIS – Indymedia Australia website!…………………Maybe there was more than one Ivan Milat kIller or he had an accomplice help him with his murders in Belanglo and who know where else he or they stalked for victims in New South Wales and other areas in Australia?…….Possibly even the Tynong North killings. Also The Frankston women killings of Sarah MacDiarmid and the Paul Denyer murders called be a connection with the Truro Murders, although Paul Denyer would have been to young for the 1980 Truro North Murders. These cold cases are difficult murders to crack, especially as they were committed so many years ago?………………………………………..

    :Mr Cruel could possibly have once been in Victoria Police custody, as in the now closed, old Castlemaine, Victoria Police Station , prisoners cells steel lock up cell door, is deeply scratched into the grey paint work – : MR CRUEL 97. …? Also MR CRUEL is scratched in the lock up cell wall? And ‘HELL O’ is deeply scratched into the glass cell window. I take this as meaning in 1997. Could a prisoner once held in a country Victoria Police lock up in custody for some other offence, been the notorious Mr Cruel , abductor and serial murderer of Karmein Chan in Thomastown, Melbourne on April 1991. The scratching’s of ‘MR CRUEL’ are engraved very deeply and look like a piece of smuggled metal by the prisoner into the cell, could of been used. There is the possibility, that a deranged prisoner being held in the police lock up cell was just big noting himself and taunting the police. But I ask myself who on earth would want to openly brag they are MR CRUEL, to the police, especially if their not really him, knowing well the very serious implications of the other prisoners in the lock up would hate him for his crime on children. I also wonder at the time in 1997, how serious the police at this Castlemaine Police Station took this prisoner scratching MR CRUEL 97 into the police cells. Was he further questioned and investigated by the police, for this act, and as a possible MR CRUEL suspect?… Also their was CCTV fixed inside the police lock up cells monitoring any prisoners in the cells in their custody , so the police would have seen the inmate scratching this in the cell door and on the walls of the cell or recorded it ?… I having taken some photo’s of the cells to record and show that this engraved graffiti could possibly be that of MR CRUEL, once in lock up and taunting the police that this is who he really was?…
