Speaking on Melbourne radio station 3AW yesterday Hinch named a Sydney property developer who was convicted of sexually assaulting his 11-year old daughter, the Herald Sun reports.
The man was sentenced to 18 months jail last week and his barrister succeeded in having his client's name suppressed, arguing his sentence would impact his ability to earn income in the future.
The victim, who is now aged in her 30s, told Hinch she was disgusted that her abuser's name could not be published while the details of the abuse she suffered were not suppressed.
"His identify was protected, yet these intimate details about me are not protected at all. How can, on the one hand, they protect this man’s identity, and on the other hand, deny the victim’s right and the rights of society to know he is a convicted pedophile?"
Hinch published the man's name on his humanheadline.com.au website, which has crashed under the enormous traffic generated in the wake of the controversy.
The radio host tweeted confirmation that his site had not been taken down by himself or the authorities.
"It has not been hacked, it has not been taken down by the Justice Department it has crashed because of an overload of traffic," Hinch wrote.
In the 1980s Hinch was imprisoned for identifying a pedophile Melbourne priest.
Last year he was banned from broadcasting for five months for naming convicted sex offenders.

The law is designed to protect the criminal and not the victim.
This fact has been confirmed to corpau by lawyers that wish to remain anonymous.
There is no justice for the victim, as mentioned in this case.
