  • 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 his sentence.
    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 inadequate''.
    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.

  • Wellington Times (NSW : Thursday 28 January 1943)
    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.

Burke said that defendant, with two juveniles boarded a train at Wellington, bound for Dubbo, slashed a tarpaulin with a knife, opened three cartons, containing bully beef. There was a big shortage in other goods. Defendant also was 20   days A.W.L. from his camp. On November 27, 1942, he was sentenced to a month's gaol and ordered to pay compensation. A commitment warrant for compensation was in the hands of the police. Detective Baxter, of the Railway Department, said that a quantity of foodstuffs was missing, which would cost the Department 11/12/-.   Mr. G. F. C. Griffin, who represented defendant, said that his client was a boy of low mentality and was led by another lad, who pleaded guilty in the Children's Court. On a charge of maliciously dam- aging the tarpaulin, Chatfield was fined 10 and ordered to pay 4/15/- compensation, in default 30 days' hard labor. For stealing, Chatfield was sent to gaol for three months with hard labor.

  • Townsville Daily Bulletin (Qld. : Monday 7 December 1908)
  • 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.

  • 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 his mother.
