Ashleigh Edward Jarrold - Pervert Dentist Reoffended while Awaiting Trial

Ashleigh Edward Jarrold, 57 was sentenced in Newcastle District Court today to five years in prison with a three-year non-parole period.

Jarrold plead guilty to two counts of indecently assaulting a boy in the 1970s, five child pornography offences and grooming a child for sex.

In handing down his sentence Judge Gregory Hosking said Jarrold had little or no chance of rehabilitation.

"For a man who has been interested in this kind of aberrant sexual activity for decades his prospects of rehabilitation are either nil or close to nil,'' he said.

HAMILTON dentist Ashleigh Edward Jarrold tried to organise a sexual liaison with a 15-year-old boy while awaiting trial for child sex offences committed in the 1970s, a statement tendered to Newcastle Local Court said.

Detectives posed as the 15-year-old boy to catch Jarrold.

Jarrold, 57, pleaded guilty yesterday to five charges relating to sexually explicit conversations he had online and grooming a boy for sexual activity.

The charges, plus five other offences that will be taken into account when he is sentenced, were adjourned to Newcastle District Court today where Jarrold is expected to plead guilty to the offences from the 1970s.

He was charged with those matters last October.

Jarrold was arrested again on September 17 after police conducted surveillance on his home and intercepted his internet service provider, a statement said.

He was refused bail.

Jarrold's barrister, Peter Harper, did not object to the statement being tendered, but indicated that some of the details might be disputed when Jarrold was sentenced.
Surveillance material shows Jarrold masturbating on a number of occasions while he chatted online with the person he thought was a 15-year-old boy, the statement said.

Jarrold told the boy on September 3 that he could pick him up from school during lunch and they could have sex at a hotel.

He also sent the boy a photo of his partner naked and told the boy of sexual encounters he had had including one with another 15-year-old boy and a group of men.

Jarrold later told the boy that his partner did not want him to meet the boy because of his upcoming court case.

Five days later, Jarrold said they should meet after the court case.

In other online conversations saved on Jarrold's computer between 2003 and 2008, he discussed child sexual abuse, rape, murder and defecation.

Jarrold sent photos of a male he claimed to be 16 to a person he chatted with online.

The photos were of the teenager performing various sex acts with men. In one photo, the teenager is over Jarrold's knee.

In another online conversation, a man told Jarrold of sexual encounters he had with family members aged 11 and 14.

Jarrold asked the other person to supply photos of the sex acts.
