The District Court was told one of the victims, an eight-year-old girl who lived with Gore and his wife for about seven months, was removed from their home and taken to crisis care after she complained about being touched by him.

Former Spanish footballers (L-R) Carlos Cuadrado, Victor Rodriguez, and Raul Calvo who were jailed on 12 December 2019 for sexually assaulting a 15 - year -old girl Three Spanish footballers have been sentenced to 38 years in prison each after sexually Sexual abuse is considered a lesser crime.

The girl's plight was highlighted by sentencing Judge Christopher Stevenson, who described her interview with authorities at the time as being like "the Spanish inquisition", saying it was fortunate investigations were no longer conducted that way.

He also said the girl's case worker had disregarded his primary responsibility to her, and at the time of the complaint had instead seemed more concerned about Gore's physical health.

He said Gore had ingratiated himself with police and managed to persuade them he was impotent, but Judge Stevenson said that was a deliberate lie because Gore was taking medication, including Viagra, for his erectile dysfunction.

Gore went on to foster a further three children whom he also abused.

Sydney wife murderer jailed for 20 years A Sydney man who stabbed his wife 14 times after seeing sexual messages from their friend will serve at least 20 years and three months in jail for her murder.

Child sexual abuse casts a 'long shadow' with an impact that 'can last a lifetime', Ms Longfield said, adding that the goal was for a 'major reduction' in the number of children being harmed in the next five years . She said: 'A system which waits for children to tell someone cannot be effective.

Man has been sentenced to 24 years in jail for sexually abusing a teenager. Stewart pleaded guilty to 99 charges relating to the abuse which occurred when the girl was aged between 12 and 15 . 'I hope their strength and this outcome gives some comfort to other survivors of sexual abuse ,' she said.

He described the crimes as having "a degree of preparation and pre-planning".

"It was not opportunistic but systematic over a lengthy period of time … all against the background of you using medication to facilitate your sexual performance."

The court heard Gore's abuse started within 14 days of his first victim coming to live at his house and in one instance he put duct tape over her mouth to keep her quiet.

Gore also threatened some of the victims, telling one he would hurt her if she told anyone.

Judge Stevenson said the victims were vulnerable children who had disadvantaged backgrounds and should have been provided with love, care and nourishment.

"Instead you preyed upon them and took advantage of them for your own sexual gratification," Judge Stevenson said.

He compared the victims' situation to that of "David and Goliath" to highlight the power Gore had.

"The difference in position is significant, but at least David had a stone," Judge Stevenson said.

"Those children had nothing, nobody … and you had absolute power over them in every sense."

Gore, who maintains his innocence, was sentenced to 15 years and four months in jail.

He will have to serve 13 years and four months before he is eligible for parole.
