The court heard Lewsam targeted 75 children who appeared to be alone in the toy section of a Kmart store between 2012 and 2015.

The man was arrested when the father of a four-year-old girl caught him abusing her in the toy aisle.

Lewsam was sentenced to 16-and-a-half years in jail and must serve at least 14-and-a-half years behind bars before being eligible for parole.
