Paedophile gets longer jail for more offences
The District Court has added six years to a paedophile's jail term in South Australia for new offences on young boys in the 1970s and 1980s.
Judge Mark Griffin said the offences were discovered mainly because Barry William Johnston, 62, made admissions during an earlier court case for similar offences.
In 2008, Johnston was jailed for five years.
He has now been ordered to serve an extra six years for 10 counts of indecent assault and one of gross indecency on young boys.
Judge Griffin said Johnston ingratiated himself with the victims' families and that one mother did not believe her son when he told of the abuse at the time.
He said Johnston had a violent upbringing and faced years of sexual abuse.
The judge said Johnston was attracted to boys because he had never sexually matured but he had since taken steps to change his behaviour.
Judge Griffin said Johnston's early guilty pleas and cooperation with police showed he was contrite and remorseful.
Johnston will be eligible for parole in 2014.
