Guilt for 13 crimes
Queensland man Rick Thorburn on Friday ruled in court to withdraw his confession of guilt for 13 crimes against the two girls.
They had attended the family day care center he ran from his home in Chambers Flat.
Thorburn claimed he suffered from amnesia and had in fact been intimidated into pleading guilty.
But on Friday, after several hours of cross-examination, he broke down.
“Now I know I’ll never get out of jail, I don’t care. Let’s end it,” Thorburn told the court.
“Guilty, guilty, guilty of everything. Let’s go home, I’m done, I’m done. ”
Thorburn received a five-year primary sentence for the 13 offenses served along with his life imprisonment.
His probation date was also pushed back two years to September 2038.
