That man, Tomasi Natuba, 21, was sentenced yesterday to a maximum 15 years imprisonment alongside 22-year-old Aneterea Tamapua, who was jailed for at least 11 years for crimes including the murder of Kesley Burgess. SEXUALASSAULT PERTH: A decorated NSW police officer who sexually assaulted a girl on a dance floor during an assignment to protect world leaders in Perth has been spared prison but is set to lose his job. Ian Ronald Sleigh, 45, wept openly in the dock after he was convicted of sexually assaulting the 22-year-old daughter of a West Australian policeman he met last October while in WA to work at the Commonwealth Heads of Governmentmeeting. DROP IN STUDENTS CANBERRA: A dramatic decline in the number of Indian students coming to Australia has led an overall downturn in the international education sector. Analysis of immigration department data shows the number of Indians studying here dropped by 71 per cent from 2007/08 to 2011/12. Hey Dad star in court Australian actor Robert Hughes leaves court in Sydney yesterday Picture: ROSS SCHULTZ By PETER BODKIN and YONI BASHAN SYDNEY: Former prime-time TV star Robert Hughes cut a forlorn figure as he appeared in the dock of a Sydney courtroom yesterday to face childsex charges for the first time. The 64-year-old actor, who starred as father-of-three Martin Kelly in popular sitcom Hey Dad!, sat expressionless with his shoulders hunched forward behind thick safety glass during a brief hearing at Central Local Court. He was later released on bail after he agreed to surrender his passport and after his wife, prominent showbusiness agent Robyn Gardiner, put up a surety of $50,000. Hughes arrived on an early-morning flight from London yesterday before he was quickly taken into custody and charged with 11 child-sex offences dating back to 1984. Police claim Hughes abused five girls in various suburbs across northern Sydney over a six-year period, with one girl aged only six or seven when she was allegedly repeatedly indecently assaulted. At least two of the alle gations coincide with his time on the long-running show, which he left in 1994 after seven years of filming. Magistrate Julie Huber yesterday granted Hughes bail after noting he handed himself in to authorities in the UK for extradition to Australia and did not appear to be a flight risk. He has been ordered not to approach any of his alleged victims or potential witnesses in the case. Hughes was later rushed from the court complex in the back of a four-wheel-drive as media crews swamped the vehicle. Outside the court, his lawyer Greg Walsh said his client had first been questioned over the allegations many years ago and had consistently maintained his innocence. Sex Crimes Squad commander Detective Superintendent John Kerlatec yesterday said Hughes had declined to be interviewed by police since arriving from London. He said more than 200 people had been spoken to as part of a two-year investigation into Hughes alleged crimes, but anyone with further complaints were still being urged to contact police. Serial killers parole loss MELBOURNE: A cold-blooded serial killer who shot a 10-year-old boy in the head and stabbed his girlfriend 157 times will remain in a Victorian jail for life after a judge rejected his bid for parole yesterday. Paul Steven Haigh, the states worst serial killer, argued for a minimum term to be set on his sentence of life with no parole for the murders of six people in the 1970s. Haigh, 55, told the Victorian Supreme Court he was no longer a threat to society. Justice David Beach refused the application. He said the brutal nature of Haighs crimes made it inappropriate to fix a non-parole period.
