Abusers job or title:: Mother and stepfather
Type of protection : Granting release

A Perth man who was involved in the group rape of a six-year-old girl has been sentenced to 21 years jail.

The man was sentenced to 21 years in jail.

The man was sentenced to 21 years in jail.

District Court judge Bruce Goetze on Friday described the offending as depraved and the worst of its kind before handing down one of the longest prison sentences for a paedophile offence in WA history.

Tracy Coulter, 51, sexually assaulted the child on four occasions between 2012 and 2014 along with the girl's mother and step-father after meeting the couple at a "swingers gathering".

The girl was aged six at the time of the first offence.

The sickening abuse was filmed on camera, with the girl sometimes given a pipe to smoke from by the adults, who were themselves high on methamphetamine.

In a victim impact statement, the now 12-year-old said she blamed herself for what happened and felt guilty.

During his sentencing remarks, Justice Goetze told the court the girl would likely struggle with self-worth for the rest of her life – particularly as she grew older and the enormity of the offending became clearer.

Mr Coulter will be eligible for parole after serving 19 years and will be deported back to his native New Zealand at the completion of his sentence.

The girl's mother and step-father have pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the child and will be sentenced at a later date. Their names have been suppressed to protect the identity of the child.

The trio were arrested after a USB stick containing video recordings of the girl being sexually abused was found by a member of the public at a house not related to the offenders and handed to police in 2018.
