Mr Mean finds a New Home

Feb 24, 2016 

A paedophile who moved to the other side of Australia to escape justice from his heinous crimes has handed himself in.

Wayne Veevers changed his name and moved to Australia in a bid to “flee his disgusting past”, a court has heard.

The 36-year-old from Runcorn, Liverpool, presented himself at Runcorn Police Station last year and revealed to officers he was a wanted man.

He finally decided to confess to a string of sick offences committed against a girl of junior school age more than 10 years ago.

On Monday he pleaded guilty to one count of rape , four of indecent assault on a child and one of gross indecency with a child at Warrington Crown Court .

Mr Barnes told the court: “He said ‘I want to confess, I want to do the right thing’.

“He was so disgusted at what had happened that he changed his name and said ‘I just want to die’.”

Veevers had targeted the young child over several years when he was a young adult. The rape was the final offence to occur.

Judge Nicholas Woodward said he was satisfied Veevers has expressed “genuine remorse”, though added it was clear he had displayed elements of grooming .

In mitigation, Mr Barnasco said Veevers was “tormented” by what he had done and in the past had tried to distance himself from the offences by moving abroad, changing his name and “almost adopting another persona because he believed Wayne Veevers is such a horrible person.”

Veevers was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison and handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order with conditions relating to his contact with children.
