Former Marist Brother Darcy John O’Sullivan an unrepentant child molester has had 8 years added onto his sentence after he tried for a reduction because someone hit him with a loaf of bread.
Oh wow do I wish we were making this stuff up, but seriously…. this completely unrepentant child molester (he honestly told the court that it was HE who was the victim), tried to get a reduction in his sentence because he claimed that being hit in the head with a loaf of bread was a “vision of things to come,” referring to being assaulted by other inmates. IT WAS A LOAF OF BREAD !
Fortunately, sanity for once prevailed and instead of a reduction, he had 8 years ADDED to his 6 year sentence because more of his victims were found in between trials !
Talk about a major backfire and mis-calculation by him and his legal team !
A paedophile priest who sexually abused 27 young boys has had his appeal for a shorter sentence rejected after claiming he deserved one because he was hit with a loaf of bread in prison. Former New South Wales Marist Brother Darcy John O’Sullivan, 80, was jailed for six years in 2016 for 22 historic child sex offences between 1971 and 1983.
O’Sullivan has always maintained that he is the true victim and told the court he feared for his safety in jail because he had already been ‘assaulted’. He alleged another inmate had hit him in the head with a loaf of bread and argued it was an indication of the future he faces in prison.
What an absolute abhorrent joke of a man you are Darcy, to sexually assault so many students, like you did, and then claim to be the victim….are you for real?
We couldn’t be happier that your sentence was increased, in fact more than doubled Your total lack of remorse for your crimes or empathy for your survivors should have been enough to put you behind for the rest of your natural life !
However in the Sydney District Court Judge Kate Traill not only rejected his appeal but added another eight years to his sentence after more offences were uncovered. Judge Traill told the court O’Sullivan exhibited no remorse, no empathy for his victims, and ‘no insight into his offending.
(He) shows a total lack of understanding of the magnitude of his predatory offending,’ she said.
O’Sullivan pleaded guilty in 2016 to the charges of child sex crimes against 12 students from the Marist Brothers College in Hamilton and at the St Marys High School in Casino. However he contradicted his initial guilty plea during his most recent trial date.
‘I absolutely deny to this court, to her honour, that I have ever indulged in that sort of behaviour in all of my life,’ O’Sullivan told the court. But O’Sullivan also detailed times he had ‘fondled boys genitalia’ inside the classroom, the school halls and the playground.
He described his actions as ‘ showing a paternal interest’ and being ‘in a kind of semi-affectionate manner to a number of my students….. Right there we have the problem with child molesters and rapists, they cannot be rehabilitated because they simply do not see what they are doing as being a problem, let alone a crime ! Child abusers see what they do to children as “affection” or “love” but let me tell you outright once and for all. WHAT THEY DO TO CHILDREN DESTROYS THEM, YOU DO NOT DESTROY SOMETHING YOU CLAIM TO LOVE ! LOVE HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS, CHILD ABUSERS DO NOT LOVE THEIR VICTIMS THEY SEEK TO DOMINATE AND DESTROY THEM.
Judge Traill imposed the extra eight years on his sentence after his crimes against a further 15 students were detailed.
O’Sullivan denied to the court that he had any sexual attraction to boys and said he gained no sexual gratification from his actions. ‘I know and understand my own sexuality. I know when I’ve been physically attracted to women. I know when I’ve been in love with women. That doesn’t make me someone as you describe,’ he said.
He won’t even admit he has done anything at all, let alone done anything wrong. What possible hope is there for him and his kind to be rehabilitated. Child abusers can NOT be rehabilitated and anyone telling you they can has a very big vested interest (such as getting paid to provide these programs) in providing that so called “rehabilitation.”
O’Sullivan did not garner sympathy from Judge Traill for being hit in the head with a loaf of bread, an incident she described as ‘relatively minor’. After the court ruling the Facebook page for the Marist Brothers College in Hamilton posted a status condemning their abuse.
‘To the brothers of Hamilton Marist Brothers high school, I have a question … ‘Why’,’ the status read. ‘Why were some (of) you such b******* to us kids and such hypocrites in what you were supposed to be standing for in the Catholic Church system?’ …. Why indeed!
Darcy John O’Sullivan thank you for proving our point that child sex abusers (which is what you are, if you want to admit it or not) can NEVER be rehabilitated. You have no remorse you don’t even think you’ve committed a crime… in fact you believe that it is YOU who is the victim.
We thank you for being arrogant enough to believe that you deserved time off for being “assaulted” with a loaf of bread. If you hadn’t been so entitled and arrogant then your sentence may have remained at 6 years and not the 14 years which it now is….
Our thoughts remain with your survivors who suffered at your filthy hands and went on to struggle with the pain and trauma of being sexually abused by someone in a position of power, someone seemingly above reproach and all that entails.
We hope this sentence helps to vindicate you all and that it empowers you to know we believe you and we are very sorry for the pain you suffered due to the actions of this sick pervert. Everyone now knows exactly what he is and what he did to you innocent children.
We hope you all find peace.
