Trevor Richard Hall
Bay of Plenty Times story 1st August 2014
A Bay convicted paedophile is behind bars after admitting a raft of further sexual crimes against three victims, including attempted rape of a teenage girl. Name suppression has lapsed for Trevor Richard Hall, 60s, after he pleaded guilty to 11 charges in Tauranga District Court yesterday, including sexual violation and assault against a boy aged 6-7 years at the time. Two of the indecent assault charges Hall admitted were representative counts, which means the offences were committed more than once - he also attempted to rape one of the victims.
Hall's offending was committed in the Eastern Bay of Plenty and the Coromandel between 1996 and 2010. His latest convictions come on the heels of a 12-months home detention sentence handed down in Tauranga District Court in December 2012 for four charges of indecently assaulting a 7-year-old girl earlier that same year. Judge Thomas Ingram called for a pre-sentence report and a further psychologist report and adjourned Hall's case to August 19. The judge told Hall on that date he hoped to be in a position to decide whether to transfer his case to the High Court for sentencing and consideration of a preventative detention sanction.
NZ Herald story 17th December 2012
Convicted paedophile Trevor Hall has been sentenced to one year's home detention, prompting an outburst from the public gallery. The sentence - handed down this morning in Tauranga District Court by Judge Peter Rollo - was followed by an outburst from the public gallery. Friends and family of the victim are currently patrolling around the courtroom, waiting for Hall to leave.
He had earlier pleaded guilty to four charges of indecent assault on a child. But his sentencing was adjourned until today after a judge sought medical information about Hall's emphysema and prognosis. Hall's offending occurred after he met a woman and her 7-year-old daughter through the Salvation Army in Whakatane. The Salvation Army did not know he had been deported from Australia more than a decade earlier having spent 17 months in a Queensland jail for sexually abusing a child. Hall was attacked outside court on December 4 by member of the public Danny Te Amo Walker, 46, who said he just "saw red'' after listening to details of Hall's offending.
