A vile pervert who molested a young girl while her mother ducked inside for a few minutes is free to offend after being cut loose on a community order which doesn't even call for any community work.
County Court of Victoria Judge Wendy Wilmoth said she was protecting the community more effectively by releasing Michael John Tetley back into the community on a two year order.
'Because your mental illness was closely connected to the offending that you committed, the purposes of the sentence in punishing you and protecting the community are best achieved by your treatment in the community,' she said.
Tetley posted a series of bizarre photos posted on Facebook in the months before facing sentence.
Multiple images depict the porky predator bizarrely dressed in his undies, with at least one suggesting he's more than a tad excited.
Tetley, was arrested after he brazenly assaulted a four-year old girl in front of her seven-year old brother outside their own home.
Their mum had been outside watching the kids and had only ducked inside for a few minutes when Tetley dropped his pants.
What happened next was the stuff of nightmares, with their mum walking outside to catch Tetley in the act.
She had already been suspicious of her neighbour after her kids were previously found playing in his unit and returning with treats and cash.
On November 17 last year, her children were outside playing on their scooters when the 54-year old got out his skateboard and joined them.
