    Hopefully someone gets 5 minutes with Rick Thorburn , it’s a disgrace the rest of his scummy family are out playing happy families again , and amazing how many friends they have managed to keep .
    Trent will be back in the spotlight again , he never showed remorse for what he did , I would put money on it he will reoffend again , apple didn’t fall far from the tree with him .
    Hopefully now Cindy is suing the department they will be forced into fixing the system as to them it’s all about money not the children

    Sibling twist: 12-year-old WA mother pregnant by step brother

    The child parents who recently had a baby together are step-siblings.

    While police say an investigation is continuing after a 14-year-old boy fathered a baby with his 12-year-old step-sister, The West Australianunderstands that charges are unlikely to be laid against either of the young parents.

    Rick Thorburn’s child rape case adjourned for further mention

    Category: | The Courier Mail

    Brief summary , as is paywalled:

    Rick Thorburn will be back in court for further mention on March 18 to face charges for allegedly raping a girl under the age of 12 after a brief mention today.

    During a five-minute mention of the case, the court was told that Guest Lawyers, would no longer be representing the father of two after Guest Lawyers sought leave to withdraw from the case.

    The alleged offences occurred between 2015 and April 2016 at a family daycare centre that his wife Julene ran from their home in Chambers Flat.

    Do we hold our breath?

    FEBRUARY 12, 2019
    Queensland child killers no longer getting ‘slap on the wrist’ sentences
    Parents or carers, whose children die after prolonged abuse, will no longer get off with light or short manslaughter sentences.
    If passed, the laws will apply to child and adult homicides resulting from long term physical and sexual abuse, particularly where victims are young, disabled or elderly.

    It would mean judges can still pass down a sentence that considers individual circumstances while acknowledging community expectations that killers should spend more time behind bars.

    Child killers no longer getting light sentences

    How could she not know?? She was home all day, her 'daycare' business was run out of the home, the little girls he interfered with were her clients...

    He never mentioned any fear he had o telling Julene about Tiah's death.

    I reckon she got away with murder.

    Paywall, but:

    The alleged offences occurred between 2015 and April 2016 at a family daycare centre that his wife Julene ran from their home in Chambers Flat.

    Today in court, Judge Craig Chowdhury adjourned the matter for further mention until April 23 so a string of new charges could be dealt with.

    Rick Thorburn is facing a string of new child-related sex offences, it has been revealed in court today.

    Lawyers for the 58-year-old appeared in Beenleigh District Court today after Thorburn was last year committed to stand trial for charges that included rape, attempted rape, and nine counts of indecent treatment of a child under 12.

    The alleged offences occurred between 2015 and April 2016 at a family daycare centre that his wife Julene ran from their home in Chambers Flat.

    Today in court, Judge Craig Chowdhury adjourned the matter for further mention until April 23 so a string of new charges could be dealt with.

    The court was told that Thorburn stands accused of further offences that related to one of the affected child victims.

    Thorburn’s lawyer Jaci Soles, from Quinn & Scattini Lawyers, advised these charges would be dealt with by way of a registry committal.

    Thorburn is also facing other charges — including one count of indecent treatment of a child under 16.

    These charges will be dealt with at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on April 10.

    You have to wonder what he may of done to her? I have always felt he had been abusing her and used Trent as the fall guy. I am sure he murdered her to shut her up. He needed a to cover her dirty deeds or it was all going to come out. He had been abusing the day care children before he killed Tia.

    This waste of space has got to be one of the most repulsive heinous people in Australia. His wife and rapey son are also beyond despicable. How they are not still locked up is beyond me.

    Thorburn child rape case adjourned

    The child rape case against Queensland man Rick Thorburn has been adjourned so prosecutors can organise a new indictment against him with additional charges.

    Thorburn faces trial for allegedly raping a girl aged under 12 while working at a daycare centre south of Brisbane.

    Earlier this month Thorburn was committed to the Beenleigh District Court on other charges including attempting to rape another girl aged under 12, as well as nine indecent treatment charges allegedly relating to incidents between July 2015 to April 2016.

    On Tuesday prosecutors had the case adjourned to May 7 to give them time to organise the offences into one indictment.

    Poor Tiah. What she must have gone through at the hands of that monster. I still think he, as well as his son, sexually assaulted her. Thank goodness those two girls are still alive. I wonder if he would’ve murdered them had he known they were going to go to the police and make complaints against him.

    Gutless scum too scared to face a jury of his peers

    Rick Thorburn to face judge-only trial for 'raping girl under 12'

    Queensland man Rick Thorburn will face a judge-only trial for his charge of raping a girl aged under 12.

    Thorburn is accused of raping a girl aged under 12 while working at a daycare centre south of Brisbane.

    Earlier this month Thorburn was also committed to the Beenleigh District Court on other charges which included attempting to rape another girl aged under 12, as well as nine indecent treatment charges allegedly relating to incidents between July 2015 to April 2016.


    Today prosecutors had the case adjourned to May 7 to give them time to organise all offences into one indictment.

    In a hearing in August last year Thorburn's lawyers argued he would not be able to get a fair trial with a jury for the daycare rape allegations, and so he should face a judge-only trial.

    Prosecutors submitted juries should be able to focus on the facts of the trial to form a verdict.

    They conceded that moving the trial to the Brisbane District Court could "dilute" the pool of potentially compromised jurors.

    The judge who heard the matter at the time reserved their decision.

    On Tuesday Beenleigh court registry staff confirmed Thorburn has been granted a judge-only trial.

    A trial date has not been set.
