Freedomroo – Jason Francis Sims pleads guilty to sick acts with 15yo in residential care

Employee takes cheeky gibe at CEO Christine Holgate

A 48-year-old Melbourne crane operator began a sick sexual relationship with a vulnerable 15-year-old and filmed the explicit acts for police to find, a court has heard.

Jason Francis Sims pleaded guilty in the County Court of Victoria on Monday to five charges including supplying drugs to a child and sexually penetrating a child under 16.

He met the girl on dating app Skout, according to a police summary tendered to the court.

She told him she was living in a Department of Health and Human Services residential care unit for young people who have experienced trauma.

They first matched online in May last year and four days later Sims invited her to a motel room.

“She informed Jason Sims that she was 15 years old so they would have to keep their activities a secret and that her age was just a number to her,” the summary read.

She snuck out of her unit to meet Sims in the motel room where he supplied her with meth and took explicit photos of her.

They continued exchanging explicit messages and Sims taught her how to “get a better hit from the meth”, the court heard.

About a week after the motel room horror he ordered an Uber to pick her up and bring her to his house, where he gave her more meth and filmed their explicit acts.

He was caught out when the girl left her phone charging at the care unit and another person saw the distressing videos.

The quick-thinking good Samaritan found Sims’ address by going through the victim’s rideshare app history, and took everything they had found to police.

After he was arrested Sims claimed to police he couldn’t remember doing what was portrayed in the videos, or receiving the message informing him the girl was 15.

Police found meth in the kitchen and GHB in the bedroom, which Sims tried to pin on his 15-year-old victim, claiming she had brought the drugs to his house.

He will be sentenced at a later date.
