Serial child sex offender infects an innocent girl, 14, who he is RELATED to with chlamydia
- A man, 21, has pleaded guilty to having sex with a girl, 14, in a remote community
- She asked to use a condom but the man refused to wear one during intercourse
- The 14-year-old victim later tested positive for chlamydia and identified the man
- He was serving a suspended sentence for having sex with another underage girl
A serial child sex offender infected a 14-year-old girl with chlamydia while on a suspended sentence for infecting another underage girl with an STI.
The 21-year-old man didn’t wear a condom when he had sex with his second victim in a remote community in the Northern Territory in September last year.
His own mother is related to the victim’s mother, according to NT News.
The perpetrator, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to the act in the NT Supreme Court on Friday.
At the time of the offence, the man was on a suspended sentence for having sex with another 14-year-old girl and giving her an STD.

The 21-year-old man began texting the underage girl, asking her to come to his house, while the two were living in the same remote community last year.
At first, the girl said she could not come over as she was looking after her cousin but eventually gave in to the man’s demands.
She went over to the man’s house, where he asked her to have sex with him. She agreed under the condition they use a condom to prevent a pregnancy or STI.
The man refused to use a condom when he had sex with the 14-year-old girl.
‘Having known full well that previously he’d had STD’s he didn’t want to wear (a condom),’ Crown Prosecutor Stephen Geary said.
‘(He showed) a reckless disregard for her health, let alone her age.’
After they had sex, the girl pushed the man off of her and walked home.

She tested positive for chlamydia a month later.
The assault took place while the man was serving a suspended sentence for a strikingly-similar offence – he had sex with another 14-year-old girl and gave her an STD when he was 17.
The man was never convicted and given a fully suspended sentence, which Mr Geary said possibly sent the wrong message.
‘He’s probably thinking, your honour: ”Well I’ve been scolded with a feather duster” – well there’s no feather dusters here,’ Mr Geary said, according to NT News.
Mr Geary urged the judge to impose a harsher sentence to leave no doubt in the offender’s mind that his behaviour was illegal.
The man’s defence lawyer Jalal Rizi said the offender’s mother is related to the girl’s mother.
The mothers had spoken and agreed for the offending man’s family to move away from the community to stop him from reoffending or accessing social media.
He will return to be sentenced for his crime next week.
