Adelaide paedophile to plead guilty to an additional 138 crimes against children


The lawyer for Adelaide paedophile Jadd William Brooker has said he will plead guilty to an additional 138 crimes against children when he faces court in November.

Counsel assisting HIV-positive Brooker, Tim Clarke, said the 39-year-old wishes to plead guilty to all but four of 142 offences he was charged with, including sexual exploitation of a child, maintaining an unlawful sexual relationship with a child and disseminating child exploitation material.

Brooker, from Glenelg East, had already pleaded guilty to 41 other child exploitation charges.

He was already in custody when police rearrested him and presented him with the new charges.

The court had previously heard Brooker was speaking with a “like-minded individual” about his desire to infect children with HIV.

Magistrate Simon Smart said he would not accept pleas until he had read the charges to Brooker and he did not have time to read all 142 charges.

Brooker is expected to enter pleas at his next appearance in November.
