1. Man who raped pregnant woman and sexually assaulted toddler could be free in three years.
A man who raped a pregnant woman in her own bed then snatched a sleeping toddler and sexually assaulted him could serve as little as three years in prison.
The man entered the bedroom of a sleeping woman who was then 21, and woke her up by jumping on the bed, then hitting her in the face.
The court heard the woman pleaded with him not to rape her as she was pregnant.
“Chillingly, you said you knew,” Judge Sexton said.
He then raped her.
“She was consumed with fear and anxiety for the health of her unborn child,” Judge Sexton said. The victim said her marriage broke up and she abandoned plans for a large family.
“She deliberately made herself unattractive to ward off rapists because she did not know the identity of her attacker,” Judge Sexton said.
The man then broke into another home and took a two-year-old boy he sexually assaulted him then left him outside his home without his pants on.
The boy’s father found him outside his flat, crying on the ground reports Fairfax Media.
The crimes took place in 1987 and crucial evidence was taken by police in the late 1980s and frozen in the hope that technology would one day advance to the point where DNA could be tested.
Yesterday the man, Andrew James Schwab, 53, was jailed for six years with a minimum of three for the rape and aggravated indecent assault.
He pleaded guilty to both crimes after his DNA was matched to the historical samples.
The judge sentenced Schwab as a serious sexual offender, however, she took into account the delay, his guilty plea and the fact Schwab had expressed remorse.
Schwab has already served two separate prison terms for attacks on seven other victims in 1987 and 1988.
