425. St. John’s College, Australia
Richard O’Connor was sentenced to 10 years in jail in 2015. His crimes took place decades before in the 1980s.
While he worked for St. John’s College in Woodlawn he committed his crimes. It took very long to bring him to justice because people covered for him by ignoring claims instead of investigating them.
It could not have been fun to be there as students while he worked there.
