Gerard Dummett and Matthew Dummett charged over child porn

By johnboy - 27 March 2012 44

Following on from the AFP’s arrests last week of two Canberra men alleged to have been part of a child pornography network the ABC has brought us their names from their first court appearance:

The ring was originally exposed in Germany and police say the images uncovered are horrific, with some including the abuse of infants.

Gerard Mark Dummett, 32, from Macgregor and Matthew Dummett, 29, from Franklin are among the 15 people arrested.

Both men have been charged with the possession of child pornography.

They are due to face court again on April 17.

What’s Your opinion?

I know both of these guys quite well.
They actually got their ages mixed around in the report, Gerard is 29 with an identical twin brother (not charged – also lives at same residence), and Matthew is 32.

Gerard does work at DEEWR

I feel deeply for the whole Dummett family. This is a hard time for all of them.

From what I hear, it may not be the same guy.

Yes, it’s entirely possible there are two Gerard Dummetts in Canberra, both of them 32 years of age, but only one of them in the phone book.

How good is this information of yours?

How?

It’s interesting that one of our fellow-contributors appears to be acquainted with this bloke.

You might want to remove this post. Falsely accusing someone with these sorts of crimes would be unforgivable.

Assuming they are brothers, you do have to wonder about their family/upbringing. Not by any means suggesting an excuse.

Sad point. I wonder if the Police have had a look into any other close relative who might have an internet connection?

I’m sure they’re just the tip of the iceberg.

Anybody else go to St Francis Xavier 1995-1998? What were the teachers like?

Catholic. Enough said?

Yes, that’s bit glib. But Christian institutions in general are developing very poor form lines.

what does it have to do with SFX? Did I miss that bit? In any case the teachers were fine, I was there a couple of years before but surely it was much of the same bunch.
