Parolee Admits To Raping, Choking And Filming Girl In Dance Studio

Anthony Peter Sampieri, 55, has admitted he raped a seven-year-old girl in a Sydney dance studio bathroom while he was on parole in November 2018.

He admitted to the rape and that he’d choked and detained in a Sydney dance studio bathroom.

He pled guilty to 10 charges at Sydney’s Central Local Court after the attack in a Kogarah dance studio bathroom in November 2018.

The charges he pled guilty to were three counts of sexual intercourse with a child, two counts of filming the indecent assault, two counts of assault as well as choking, detaining, wounding a person with intent.

During the assault two other men intervened and attempted to detain the Sampieri, leading to a struggle which allegedly left one man with multiple stab wounds.

The 46-year-old has since made a full recovery.

As a result of the guilty pleas, five charges relating to alleged assaults and using a child to make child abuse material were withdrawn.

A bearded Sampieri appeared via video link as his lawyer, Penny Musgrave, entered the pleas on his behalf.

He was committed to Downing Centre Local Court for sentence on June 21.
