Read the chilling six page letter a jailed paedophile sent to his victims’ mum
A twisted paedophile sent a chilling letter to the family of the young girls he raped, claiming there was no evidence the children suffered as a result of his abuse.
Tim Stewart was jailed for 32 years in 2017 after police found 945 images and videos of him sexually assaulting a girl when she was aged between 12 and 15 years.
Another jury then found him guilty of further charges of sexually abusing her younger sister, who was just 11 at the time of his crimes.
Letters obtained by 7News show Stewart wrote to the victim’s mother saying there is ‘no evidence that she suffered psychologically’ and said he is hoping to get out of jail between 2022 and 2026.
Tim Stewart was jailed for 37 years in 2017 after police found 945 images and videos of him sexually assaulting a girl when she was aged between 12 and 15 years
A dozen SD memory cards documenting Stewart’s ‘vile and incomprehensible’ crimes were found hidden inside the lining of the 45-year-old’s jacket in 2017.
The judge during the trial Paul Conlon, known as ‘Judge Dread’, sentenced Stewart over 125 individual charges against the young girl as well as charges against her sister.
The court heard he filmed the abuse for his own sexual gratification, and was sentenced to spend 24 years in jail after being given an aggregate maximum term of 32 years.
Stewart pleaded guilty to 99 charges relating to the abuse which occurred when the girl was aged between 12 and 15.
A jury a few months later found him guilty of a further 28 offences, including drugging the girl and and indecently assaulting her younger sister when she was about 11.
At the trial, Stewart claimed he and the victim had ‘acted like husband and wife’.
Judge Conlon said Stewart’s grooming of the older sibling was ‘total, complete and overwhelming’.
‘This type of offending is simply incomprehensible.’
Stewart has sent letters to the family of the two young girls he abused saying they didn’t suffer psychologically as a result of his assaults
The perverted sex attacker was sentenced to a total of 955 years, but will spend 24 years in jail after being given an aggregate maximum term of 32 years
The family currently have an AVO against Stewart which is meant to stop him being able to contact them, yet the convicted paedophile was able to send the letters to a family member who handed them over to the victims.
‘The fears of [victim] and [victim] are not warranted and to enforce the current order would be an abuse of process,’ Stewart wrote.
The demented paedophile also said he would be contacting the victims in the future, another breach of the order.
‘I will be seeking some form of contact including but not limited to letters, phone calls…’
The family of the two girls released a statement saying they supported the work of authorities.
‘Corrective Services have gone above and beyond to ensure our safety,’ they said.
‘Tim Stewart is manipulative, always skirting around the law… to maintain contact, torment and bully us and prolong our anxiety. He has zero remorse.’
He is set to appear in court to appeal his sentence, where prosecutors will be able to use the letters against him. The twisted sex offender believes he could be free soon.
‘A sentence of 8 to 12 years maximum term would be the likely outcome,’ he wrote to the family.
‘Real possibility I that I will be released between 2022 and 2026.’
‘Tim Stewart is manipulative, always skirting around the law… to maintain contact, torment and bully us and prolong our anxiety. He has zero remorse,’ the family said of the paedophile
Victim’s advocate Howard Brown told the program that the chilling words of the convicted child rapist were able to get in the hands of the family are a failure of the system.
‘We like to think once the trial process is complete, we are done with the matter. This just goes to show, you are never done,’ he said.
Stewart’s wife, who went by the name Rachel, told 2GB in 2017 he had a secret app on his phone that he used to hide his child porn.
‘I found out… that he had an app on his phone that looks like a calculator and you would type in a code and once you put in that code the app would open, and there were explicit photos within that app,’ she said.
Since being alerted to his behaviour, Rachel said his lies began to unravel.
‘He was a master manipulator, as most paedophiles are. Everything in his life was a lie,’ she said.
‘He had this facade which allowed him to offend. The most distressing part of the trial was Stewart claiming the young girl initiated sex with him.
‘On the stand for two days… he grilled her about being in a relationship with him.’
