Ian Appleton, a former Christian Brothers College (CBC) teacher and Scouts master, had in October pleaded guilty and was convicted of raping the now 10-year-old boy between 2007 and 2009. He appeared in the Paarl Regional Court for sentencing yesterday and the boy's mother testified in aggravation of sentence.
...
Her pained, emotional testimony was preceded by an out-of-court altercation between Appleton and a group of people, including the mother's family and several people claiming they were molested by Appleton many years ago.
"Do you have to be physical? asked Appleton as a woman and a man pulled him in an attempt to expose his face to photographers. This was followed by loud jeers, including: "But you were physical with our children 40 years ago. The drama was later brought to the attention of magistrate Nomawethu Smile by Appleton's lawyer, John Riley, who said Appleton was "pushed around and jostled".
...
At the end of her testimony, the public gallery erupted in applause, while Appleton appeared shaken.
The mother told the court the boy respected and was loyal to Appleton. However, he had turned her bright son into a pupil unable to concentrate at school, resulting in him failing Grade 1.
She said the trauma had also affected her son's participation in sport.
...
With the court appearance coinciding with the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children, the mother of eight begged that Appleton be removed from society.

Former Catholic school teacher Ian Appleton leaves the Paarl Regional Court this week where he was convicted of raping a seven-year-old boy a few years ago. He now faces a barrage of allegations of sexual molestation by former pupils at Christian Brothers College more than 20 years ago.
...
Appleton, 72, appeared in court again this week in connection with the rape and the boy's mother testified in aggravation of sentence.
Soon after the October report, 10 men contacted the newspaper by e-mail or telephone with allegations that Appleton had sexually assaulted them when they were boys, dating as far back as 1976.
Appleton was a teacher at Christian Brothers College (CBC) in Green Point between 1976 and 1982.
...
The men want to know why Appleton was allowed to get away with his actions for so many years.
...
Jacobs added that Appleton had never been convicted of any previous offences.
Some of the former pupils said they suspected a cover-up by headmasters at CBC where Appleton taught maths and accountancy and was the sports master. The school closed in 2001.
One claimed Appleton was fired from CBC by former headmaster J Gaynor after he found out he was involved in molestation, but was allowed to feature in the college's sporting activities.
...
Asked about allegations that Appleton had been fired from the college, Dowling said: "The principal at the time, JA Gaynor, is dead and we are unable to establish the reason for (Appleton's) leaving. In subsequent years (1983 to 1989) Mr Appleton continued to be involved in school sport."
He said the church had put in place preventative measures and strategies to make all staff in church schools aware of the seriousness of child abuse.
Meanwhile the Rev Peter-John Pearson, the Catholic Church's spokesman, said while the Christian Brothers had oversight of the college at the time, the church had also checked its records and had found no complaints from parents about Appleton.
"School complaints would not be dealt with by the church, especially if the person accused was not a member of the clergy," said Pearson.
Milly Siebrits, chief executive of the SA Scout Association, said Appleton was an assistant scout master in the early 1960s.

Appleton, 72, a former Christian Brothers College teacher and scoutmaster, was also granted bail and leave to appeal his sentence.
In December he was convicted of raping a boy repeatedly between 2007 and 2009.
...
The boy's family have known Appleton for about 50 years, as the victim's father attended the college. Appleton pleaded guilty in October.
The court also heard how Appleton had twice been admitted to the Child Abuse Therapeutic and Training Services, a Cape Town-based sex offenders' programme.
Last week, magistrate Smile questioned the possibility of Appleton's rehabilitation and chances of recovery, saying: "You can't teach an old dog new tricks".
Appleton's lawyer, John Riley, said: "The sentence is shockingly inappropriate. (Appleton) is not jail material."
...
Appleton had to testify in his bail application and told the court that he only went to church, the shop and back, and to see doctors. He also cited a number of health problems.
...
Previously a number of now adult men told the Cape Times how Appleton invited them to go skinny-dipping at his house when they were boys, showered with them and tried to fondle or perform oral sex on them.
A 40-year-old Cape Town businessman revealed how Appleton befriended his family during the 1980s. He said Appleton would show him pornographic magazines and masturbate.
After a few years, the man confided in his father and the family laid charges against Appleton. But a detective persuaded them to drop the charges because Appleton was considered a good candidate for rehabilitation.
