SEX OFFENDER
APPEALS
By Jessica Howard

The masseur who sexually assaulted more than 20
women at a Darley Vitality Centre has won the right
to appeal his convictions, due to the neglect of an
ancient legal precedent.
Ronald Van Dorp was found guilty by jury verdict
on 26 out of 35 indecent assault charges in the
Geelong County Court in September 2015.
However, it has since been alleged that Judge
Felicity Hampel did not adopt the legal practice
known as the right to ‘peremptory challenge’.
In Victoria, during the empanelling of a jury in a
criminal trial, an accused person has the right to
reject up to six potential jurors without giving any
reason.
During this process, potential jurors are drawn
from the ballot and are required to walk past the
accused in the dock before entering the jury box.
Van Dorp filed an application for leave to appeal
on the basis that in September 2015, none of the
potential jurors walked past the dock, meaning
they weren’t presented before the accused.
The application was accepted and the 55-year-old,
who is alleged to have sexually assaulted 24 women
aged from 16 to 60, will now appeal against his
conviction for indecent assault matters.
Van Dorp was originally sentenced on all charges
to a maximum prison term of eight years and four
months. He was also classed as a registered sex
offender for a period of eight years.
He will appear in the Melbourne Supreme Court of
Appeal next month.
An alleged victim referred to the news as
“distressing”.
“I was home alone at the time, and if it hadn’t
been for a couple of members of the community, I
probably would not have made it through the day,”
she told The Moorabool News.
“I don’t feel like I am strong enough to have to go
through this again. I am shocked and angry and
frustrated that this is allowed to happen”.
A second alleged victim said she could not believe
that Van Dorp could appeal on such a “small
technicality”.
“It is a technicality that comes from the judge, it is
something that the judge has, or hasn’t, done. This
has the potential to open up a whole can of worms
for a number of other cases, which is very worrying.
“A law has been set but [the judge] doesn’t believe
Van Dorp leaves the court in 2014 and will now appeal his convictions after Judge Felicity Hampel failed to adopt a legal practice in it. It is outrageous”.

This was the last game for the season with the team extremely
proud of their achievements. The majority of the team were
all first year cricketers and to see them improve during
the season was very rewarding. All of the team members
achieved personal milestones during the year and improved
on them later in the year. The Ballan Cricket Club hopes to
see all the team back next year to continue their pathway to
becoming great cricketers. Tyler Trickey 212 not out including 19 sixes and 15 fours. Dylan Graham top scoring for the U16s.
