Rapist to spend an extra two years in jail
Date June 30, 2012
A convicted rapist who sexually attacked a woman on Northbourne Avenue will
serve at least two more years in jail after the Crown successfully appealed
The ACT Court of Appeal increased Alfred Chatfield's jail term after finding
his conduct deserved a severe sentence and he appeared incapable of understanding
that he must obey the law.
Chatfield, 44 (born about 1968), grabbed the woman at knifepoint as
she was walking home at 4.40am on September 20, 2009. He threatened to stab
her and dragged her into bushes where he robbed and sexually assaulted her.
The woman's horrified partner, who had been speaking to her on the phone,
heard her screams and phoned the police for help.
The woman eventually escaped after biting Chatfield on the hand and running
on to Northbourne Avenue, where police found her shortly afterwards.
Chatfield was arrested several days later.
He had previous convictions for rape interstate and had been on a three-day
drinking binge at the time of the offence. Chatfield was set for a trial
but pleaded guilty in April last year to charges of sexual assault, indecency
and aggravated robbery.
In June 2011, ACT Supreme Court Justice Hilary Penfold sentenced Chatfield
to five years in jail with a non-parole period of four years. But the DPP
took the case to the Court of Appeal, arguing the sentence was ''manifestly
It was argued that Justice Penfold handed down an inadequate sentence on
one charge because she failed to take into account Chatfield's late plea
of guilty, his lack of remorse and the fact that the maximum penalty was
12 years' jail.
The Crown also argued the judge had failed to properly accrue the sentences
on the remaining three charges.
Chief Justice Terence Higgins and justices Richard Refshauge and Bruce Lander
found the sentence was manifestly inadequate and Chatfield's conduct required
a severe sentence. ''The respondent [Chatfield] made it clear in the coarsest
terms that he intended to rape her by describing in graphic and vile terms
that which he intended to do,'' they wrote.
''The respondent further terrorised the complainant by the acts of indecency
which could have only reinforced in the complainant's mind the likelihood
that she was to be raped.''
The judges also found Justice Penfold should not have applied different discounts
to the sentences on the four charges but should have given the same discount
for each sentence.
They said the objective circumstances of Chatfield's conduct called for a
severe penalty while his subjective circumstances - his background and history
- did little to suggest any reduction in the sentence.
The judges said women were ''entitled to walk the streets of Australian cities
without being terrorised by offenders looking for sexual gratification''.
They said Chatfield had spent nearly his whole life in the criminal justice
system and ''appears unable to understand that he must obey the law''.
Chatfield's original sentence was set aside.
He was re-sentenced to a total of seven years and nine months' jail with
a non-parole period of six years.

DOING WORK ON THE SABATH - S. H. Chatfield appeared before the bench at Morpeth,
on Wednesday, charged with working on the Sabbath. Senior Constable Crawford
deposed that on the 14th of September he saw the defendant working at his
usual avocation, on board of the steamer Morpeth, in the morning; he was
assisting in putting the cargo on shore, viz, two new carriages, and giving
orders to have it put on shore, the defendant was the chief officer on board
the Morpeth By the bench: He noticed the carriages, they were new Cross-examined:
He did not see the carriages used, the defendant personally assisted in getting
the carriages on shore, and gave orders to that effect he was not aware that
the defendant was in any trade. By the Bench: The carriages were not required
for traveling. Re-examined: He saw no other cargo taken out; he was present
about half an hour - Mr Thompson submitted that this was a case that did
not come within the meaning of the Act - The bench ruled that it did - Mr.
Thompson called witnesses - Captain Hoarding said Mr. Chatfield was mate
of his vessel; he was not a laborer or a tradesman; he might he an artificer;
he thought it, i.e., the mate's profession, was a calling; his duty was to
obey his (the captain's commands, and carry out the interests of the company;
he need not lay hands upon the work unless he liked; he remembered the buggies
being landed, they were the property of Mr Fullford, and as a favor were
landed at his request; the horses were waiting to take them up to Maitland;
the harness was also inside one of the buggies. By the bench: He had seen
cargo discharged without the assistance of Mr Chatfield; they did so oftener
than other wise; Mr. Fullford resided opposite to the Company's gate, he
would not have given orders to land the vehicles only that he thought they
were to go to Maitland. -Mr Thompson submitted that the defendant was entitled
to an acquittal, because he (the mate) was not an artificer, labourer, &c.,
or of any calling coming within the meaning of the Act.- The bench thought
that if Mr Chatfield reduced himself to the level of a labourer he was punishable
as a labourer, and it had not been shown that the work was a work of necessity.
The bench convicted the defendant, and fined him 5s. Four other analogous
cases were postponed for a fortnight.

BUT WAS REMANDED
Although he pleaded guilty to three charges, Donald Chatfield (19), who appeared before the Dubbo police court on Monday, in the uniform of a soldier, was remanded for eight days. Had he been released, it was stated, the police would execute an unsatisfied warrant that was standing for him, while the military authorities also were seeking his custody.
Chatfield was dressed as an Army private, and was charged with trespassing on railway property. A second charge was with causing malicious damage to a railway tarpaulin, valued at £4/15/-, and a third charge was with stealing five tins of bully beef, valued at 5/-, the property of the Railway Commissioners. The remand was necessary so that trucks in which it is alleged defendant was riding with some youths could have their contents checked. Detective J. A. Burke assured the bench that no hardship would result from the remand, as
defendant was A.W.L. from a military camp. There is also a commitment warrant outstanding against him. Defendant was allowed bail of £20 by Mr. R. G, Cookson, P.M.

GIRL'S STORY IN THE SILVER TOWN' SHOOTING CASE.
Being out of danger Mabel Smith, of Albert Road, Silverton, appeared at West
Ham Police Court on Tuesday to give evidence against Ernest Bailey Chatfield,
26, boiler-maker's helper, of Central Park-road. East Ham, who is charged
with attempting to murder her on September 26 (says "Lloyd's Weekly" of October
11). Mabel Elizabeth Smith [Birth 3rd qtr., 1889, W. Ham, GRO 4a 50], the
prosecutrix, a tall, good-looking girl, had been an inmate of Poplar Hospital,
being treated for three wounds. She said she was 19 years of age, and lived
with her parents at the Wesleyan Chapel House. Albert Road, Silvertown. She
had been acquainted with the prisoner about seven weeks, and had walked out
with him three times. Before she knew Chatfield she had been walking out
with a man named Pestal, and she showed him two gold rings that he had given
her, Chatfield seemed annoyed and asked her to give them away. Mr. Jackson
(clerk): On the last occasion you went out with him did he say anything to
you? Yes, He said, 'If you throw me over, I know where my mother put my revolver,
and I'll do away with myself." Did you receive something on September 27?
Yes, a note. I have burnt it. In your reply did you tell him you were going
to give him up? Yes. I said I don't wish to keep company with you. I will
tell you my reasons later." On September 28 prisoner met her as she went
to work, and presently she felt a burning sensation in her throat, and blood
spurted from her neck. The Clerk: Did you hear a report? No. What did you
do? I screamed and turned back and ran. Did you, hear anything? Yes, two
reports, and I felt a knock on my hip. Did you see anything in the prisoner's
hand? No. Did you know that he had a revolver? No. Mabel Smith, in reply
to Mr. Daybelt (defending), said she had written several letters to prisoner.
In those letters have you spoken of marriage? Only when he spoke of it. He
was in a hurry to get married, and I was not. Did you write him these words:
"If you keep to your promise, your being out of work will make no difference
to me. Believe or believe me not. I think more of you than anyone else"?
Yes, I wrote that, but I used to write things like that to keep him from
being suspicious. This is the note you wrote him: "I am not coming out with
you to-night. I don't want to keep company with you any more. I am going
dancing." Having regard to that note, don't you think you treated him rather
cruelly? From the beginning I didn't want him. I didn't like to say "No"
to him, because I was afraid of him. The prisoner was further remanded.

to the cells. Corporal L. Toppin said that Chatfield, when refusing to take
the oath or make an affirmation, said to him and Captain Arthur Fitzroy Best,
"You will have to account to the great Jehovah God for this." Mr. G. A. Webb
appeared for Chatfield who pleaded not guilty, and Captain D. E. Booker for
the complainant, Captain Best. Chatfield said that he was a preacher of Jehovah
God's theocratic government. He believed that he was exempt because he was
a preacher of the Gospel. Mr. Aitkin said that he could not recognise Chatfield
as a minister because he had given no proof.

Finding an Island. The master of the steamer Blackbird, Captain C. W. Chatfield,
has written from Sydney to the Victorian Harbour Department, reporting the
discovery, while on a voyage from Sydney to Cooktown, of an island in the
Sir James Smith Group, which is not laid down on the Admiralty chart. The
Argus says: "The new island is the south westernmost of the group, and is
wooded. South-east of it Captain Chatfield discovered two rocks not laid
down in the chart. The island is formed of two hummocks, with a deep hollow
between, the south-west hummock being the highest. There is a wide and apparently
deep passage between the newly-discovered island and the long island, which
is already laid down in the chart."

Launceston Examiner (Tas. : Wednesday 30 August 1899)
CHATFIELD-RIECHELMANN. NUKUALOFA (Tonga), Aug. 15. A social event has just
taken place here which may be of interest to your readers, as one of the
parties concerned has been a resident of Launceston for some years past,
viz., the wedding of Emilie, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. August Riechelmann,
and Mr. Harold D. Chatfield, of this place. Mr. Chatfield has been a resident
for the past three years, bearing a most estimable character, and, the bride's
parents being respected citizens, all Nukualofa turned out to do honour to
the occasion. Flags were to be, seen flying everywhere, and the Govern ment
flag-staff was gaily decorated, all giving evidence of the popularity of
the young couple. At 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 10, Miss Riechelmann en
tered the King's Chapel, accompanied by her father, with her four sisters
as bridesmaids, the latter being attired in surah silk, trimmed with duchess
lace and silver braid and drawn silk; hats to match. They carried artistically
decorated crooks, profusely adorned with snowdrops and lillies of the valley.
The bride wore white corded silk, elaborately made, with a Medici collar
and train. The bestman was Mr. H. Shirley Watkin, a son of the rev. gentleman
who performed the ceremony, christened the bride, and married her parents.
Both parties ad vanced up the aisle to the soft strains of "Oh, promise me,"
which was played during the ceremony on the organ by a mutual friend, and
as the groom turned to leave at the conclusion of the service with his wife
upon his arm Men delssohn's "Wedding March" burst forth, flooding the whole
church with melody. Shortly after the invited guests, numbering 50, repaired
to the resi dence of Mr. and Mrs. Riechelmann to partake of a very sumptuous
breakfast, where the most elaborate menu ever provided in Tonga was enjoyed.
The table was handsomely decorated with puffed yellow silk, interspersed
with ferns and roses. The gifts were numerous and elegant, from those presented
by the King and Queen to pieces of tappa, and mats from ordinary natives,
whilst every European contributed a token of re spect to Mr. and Mrs. Chatfield.
In the evening a grand ball was given at "Pagai," a Government building,
which was beautified by an abundance of flags, evergreens, etc., the band
providing music for the dancers, and a supper spread that rivalled (if possible)
the breakfast before it. So ended a day that will always be remembered with
great pleasure by all the people, in which the grandest, European wedding
ever witnessed in the Friendly Islands, was celebrated.
Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : Saturday 11 August 1900)
Tonga News. - Nukualofa, July 21, 1900.
In August last your correspondent chronicled the wedding of Mr. Harold D.
Chatfield with the eldest daughter of Mr. August Riechelmann, and the wedding
was celebrated under the most auspicious surroundings and anticipations.
Now, alas! the death of the young bride has to be recorded. The death of
Mrs. Emily. Chatfield took place at 3 a.m. on July 5. The sad event threw
a gloom over the" whole of our community," for the young lady was much respected,
and the bereaved husband and the young bride's relations have the sincerest
sympathy of all the white residents, and for that matter of the Tongans also.
The child (a daughter) survives.

A respectable looking boy, about 12 years of age, named Edward Chatfield,
was charged at the City Court on Tuesday with stealing gold fish. According
to the evidence of the arresting constable it appears that boys are constantly
fishing in the artificial ponds in the Treasury-gardens. They catch the young
gold fish and then dispose of them at the arcade. On Monday afternoon he
caught the boy with a small tin, which contained nine gold fish. As the boy
was very respectably connected and had never been absent from home before,
Mr. Call, P.M., severely admonished the boy and allowed him to go home with
