Case study Human service and the law

An “admired” southern suburbs teacher who “authored his downfall” by persistently abusing an underage girl bad been jailed for at least seven years.

Andrew Kind, 51, had pleaded guilty to the persistent sexual exploitation of a child at intermittent periods between October 2010, when she was 14 years old, and March 2013.

In sentencing yesterday, District Court judge Paul Rice said the girl was “ young, immature and emotionally fragile” when Kind began an illegal relationship with her.

“.. Your actions were criminal, corrupting and involved a gross breach of trust,” he said.

“ Yours was a duty to nurture and protect her – not abuse her for your own sexual gratification.”

Judge Rice said Kind, who is a father, was remorseful for his actions but the sentence must send a strong deterrent to others who consider preying on children.

The judge sentenced him to 10 years’ jail with non-parole period of seven years.
