A Kenyan-born man who was working as fruit picker in Australia has pleaded guilty to three charges of gross misconduct – including masturbating in front of a minor – and will be deported soon, Dunia Times has learnt.

 The man, who has been described by an Australian court as a serial masturbator, was jailed for, among other things, touching himself inappropriately in a supermarket and in front of an eight-year-old girl.

Salesa Casali, 27, was charged with masturbating inside Bundaberg IGA in Queensland and then in front of the young girl in separate incidents four days apart last year, according to News Mail.

The  migrant was also charged with creeping into a sleeping  woman’s bed in Brisbane before fleeing through the bathroom window.

Casali fronted Bundaberg District Court on Monday and pleaded guilty to indecent treatment of a child under 12, committing an indecent act in public at the IGA, and trespass at a home in Brisbane.

Crown prosecutor Melissa Wilson condemned his actions as extremely inappropriate.

 “It was a deliberate act. He had shown sexual interest in the child,” she said.

Ms Wilson said he had been held in custody for 325 days, which was appropriate as he would be deported on his release.

The court heard Casali was born in Kenya but was adopted by an Italian couple and raised in Venice.

According to Daily Mail, Casali had done various jobs in Australia including fruit picking, but could not be released because he had no Australian Visa.

“He was sentenced to 325 days jail, backdated to his arrest on July 1 last year for the offence against the child,” wrote The Daily Mail.

Authorities said Border Security said that the process of repatriation would likely take a few days to arrange.

“I will be in custody until Immigration come to deport me,” Casali said through an interpreter.

Judge Bowskill told Casali, a lanky man with black curly hair and wearing thick black glasses, his offences were very serious.

“Exposing an eight-year-old girl to an indecent act carries a maximum penalty of 20 years. That shows how serious it is,” she said.

“You went into a lady’s home and got into her bed and went to sleep. That would have been a very frightening experience for that lady.”

Judge Bowskill sentenced Casali to 325 days jail, backdated to his arrest on July 1 last year for the offence against the child. He was convicted of the other offences but not further punished.
