This site is an anti-pedophilia blog-site, amongst many other things.

I publish many Australian cases of pedophilia, particularly when very young children are exploited by adults, and when children are exploited by men or women working as schoolteachers, pastors, counsellors or similar positions of public trust.

“The court heard Bartsch had been living in Adelaide since 1999, had reconciled with his wife, converted to Christianity and was working as a school principal.

He resigned from his position when he was charged.

St Michael’s Collegiate School ex-teacher, Raynor Ian Bartsch, jailed for sex with student

23 May 2017

A former teacher at an elite private girls’ school in Hobart who maintained a sexual relationship with a student in the 1990s has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Raynor Ian Bartsch, 56, was employed as the head of sport at St Michael’s Collegiate School between 1989 and 1993.

He pleaded guilty to maintaining a sexual relationship with a young person under the age of 17 years.

He has been sentenced to two years in jail, with eight months of the sentence suspended.

He must serve eight months before he is eligible for parole, and could be out early next year.

The court heard Bartsch was in his 30s when he befriended the female student and initiated sex acts with her.

In sentencing, Justice Alan Blow said the acts had been consensual but were unlawful because of the victim’s age.

Justice Blow said it had been an “escalating sexual relationship” involving “serious breaches of trust”.

The court heard Bartsch had been living in Adelaide since 1999, had reconciled with his wife, converted to Christianity and was working as a school principal.

He resigned from his position when he was charged.

The victim has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and said the abuse destroyed her relationship with her parents and still affected her.

During the trial, the court heard St Michael’s Collegiate School was aware of allegations one of its teachers was having sex with a student but allowed him to see out the year teaching, working at the pool and coaching.

It is the second time a teacher from the Anglican school has admitted to having sex with a student.

The former head of science, Nicolaas Ockert Bester, was sentenced in 2011 for maintaining a relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
