Woman ‘hid pregnancy before dumping baby’
08 Sep 2006

A WOMAN hid her pregnancy from her partner before giving birth in their bathroom and abandoning the child in a beer carton, a Sydney court has been told.

The 31-year-old Dee Why woman faced Manly Local Court today charged with the attempted murder of her newborn, and one count of child abandonment.

NSW Police told the court the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, concealed her growing stomach with baggy clothing before giving birth in the bathroom of the Dee Why unit she shared with her partner.

She briefly put the baby in the toilet bowl before removing it, cutting the umbilical cord and taking the newborn to the unit’s laundry, police said.

The court was told she left the baby behind after wrapping it in a towel, putting it in the beer carton and covering it with a piece of carpet.

Neighbours heard the baby’s cries early on August 27 and alerted police.

Police Prosecutor Patrick Besso said the baby was lucky to be alive.

“Examination of the baby indicated it was in a hypothermic state and if not found it would have died within 15 minutes,” he said.

The hearing before Magistrate Andrew George was adjourned when a policewoman fainted in the courtroom, but has since resumed.

Threat to officer in court

Lisa Muxworthy

16 Jun 2007

A MAN facing nine charges, including one of malicious damage, was refused bail when he threatened a policeman in Manly Court yesterday.

The 39-year-old Frenchman and builder Laurent Jacques Baroni, threatened to “take the weak one” – motioning to one of the two custody officers – as magistrate Jane Culver tried to assess his bail application.

Mr Baroni faces charges of malicious damage, using offensive language, trespass, custody of an offensive implement, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, breach of bail and intimidation of police.

He has been in Australia for four weeks and represented himself in court.

According to court papers, Mr Baroni took a 2m wooden seat paling on Wednesday morning, and used it to smash windows and terracotta pot planters at Out of Africa restaurant on East Esplanade. He then smashed a menu board at Cristals on The Corso and damaged a sandwich stand at the Boardrider Backpacker.

Mr Baroni was in court on Thursday when he first applied for bail, promising Ms Culver he would stay out of trouble and was not a flight risk as his passport and plane tickets had been stolen.

Ms Culver remanded him in custody that night and said she wanted him to be assessed by a mental health worker.

Yesterday, police prosecutor Sgt Patrick Besso said given the “serious nature” of the alleged offences, Mr Baroni should be retained and treated in custody at Long Bay Jail.

Sgt Besso also referred to a “violent and psychotic episode” Mr Baroni had in France in May 2005. It was at that point Mr Baroni threatened the officer and Ms Culver refused bail. Mr Baroni is due back in court on June 22.

Last man seen with nurse was a rapist who admitted hating women, inquest told

December 7, 2010
Mary Louise Wallace … disappeared after she left the Alpine Inn.

The last man seen with missing Sydney nurse Mary Louise Wallace told a parole officer that he “must hate women” after pleading guilty to rape.

Ms Wallace was last seen in the early hours of September 24, 1983, at the Alpine Inn in Crows Nest.

An inquest into her disappearance and presumed death heard yesterday that she left the venue with Robert Adams, who had offered to drive her to her home in Drummoyne.

Philip Strickland, counsel assisting the coroner, told the court in his opening address that Mr Adams had a history of violence towards women and had been convicted of rape in 1976.

Mr Adams‘s probation and parole officer at the time, Patrick Besso, gave evidence today at the Coroner’s Court in Glebe that, during an interview in September 1976, Mr Adams had said “I must hate women” after pleading guilty to rape.

Mr Besso said that Mr Adams had told him that, in the past, he had had sex with women “to get back at them”.

He had also said that the woman he raped in his car outside a club at The Spit in northern Sydney “must have wanted it”.

“As far as I’m concerned, she was just a slut, her boobs hanging out, just a slutty looking girl,” Mr Besso said Mr Adams had told him.

Mr Adams had said that, because the woman had accepted his invitation to sit in his car, she was by implication agreeing to have sex with him, Mr Besso told the court.

He had also told Mr Besso that he felt as if he was “an animal”.

“I have been a fool and I know I must learn to control myself,” Mr Besso quoted Mr Adams as saying.

The inquest is continuing before coroner Paul MacMahon.

Man seen with missing nurse ‘hated women’

The last person seen with missing Sydney nurse Mary Louise Wallace told a parole officer after raping another woman that she “must have wanted it” and that he “must hate women”, an inquest has heard.

Ms Wallace was last seen in the early hours of September 24, 1983, at the Alpine Inn at Crows Nest, in Sydney’s north.

An inquest into her disappearance and presumed death has heard that the 33-year-old left the venue with Robert Adams, who had offered to drive her to her Drummoyne home.

Philip Strickland, counsel assisting the coroner, said in his opening address that Mr Adams had a history of violence towards women and had been convicted of rape in 1976.

Mr Adams’ then probation and parole officer, Patrick Besso, on Tuesday told Glebe Coroner’s Court that during an interview in September 1976 Mr Adams had said: “I must hate women” after pleading guilty to rape.

Mr Adams had said the woman he raped in his car outside a club at The Spit in northern Sydney “must have wanted it”, Mr Besso told the inquest.

“As far as I’m concerned, she was just a slut, her boobs hanging out, just a slutty-looking girl,” Mr Besso said Mr Adams had told him.

Mr Adams had said that by accepting his invitation to sit in his car, the woman was agreeing to have sex with him, Mr Besso told the inquest.

It also heard that in April 1983, another nurse met Mr Adams in Crows Nest and the pair went to the Alpine Inn.

He posed as a police officer and they arranged to meet again for dinner.

After dinner the next day, Mr Adams allegedly tried to force her to have sex in her apartment but was interrupted by the arrival of her friend.

The woman reported the incident to police after she saw a news report about Ms Wallace’s disappearance which featured a photograph of Mr Adams.

Ms Wallace’s colleague Mary Williams on Tuesday told the inquest that police asked her and fellow colleague Lesley Kennedy to meet with the woman.

Police asked them to “talk her into pressing charges against Robert Adams because she was very scared and she didn’t want to, so the police thought we could talk her into it,” Ms Williams said.

Mr Adams was found not guilty of the assault by the District Court in Sydney in 1985.

Ms Williams said she saw Mr Adams with Ms Wallace on the night of her disappearance and presumed he was a friend because he seemed concerned about her intoxicated state.

When Ms Williams told Ms Wallace “we better get you home, I better get you a cab”, Mr Adams insisted on driving her home in his Commodore.

“I did ask her if she wanted to go with him and she said: `Yes, it’ll be alright’,” Ms Williams said.

“I did say to him: ‘Are you alright to drive?, and he said: ‘You don’t have to worry, I’m a policeman’.”

The inquest is continuing before Coroner Paul MacMahon.
