Paedophile ordered to stay in jail

A CONVICTED sex offender has been ordered to serve more time in detention to undergo therapy, despite the expiration of his sentence.

Alexandria George Brookes, 45, has an extensive history of child sex offences dating back to 1986, for which he has been convicted and served jail time. In 1988 he was convicted of 10 offences against boys aged seven and eight and a girl aged six and was sentenced to 11 years jail.

The offences occurred while Brookes was in the company of convicted paedophile Dennis Ferguson.

Brookes was released from jail in January 1999 but was back in prison within three years after sexually assaulting a four-year-old boy.

His repeated failure to comply with parole conditions has seen him returned to prison and in March 2010 the state of New South Wales made an application that he be subject to a detention order for a further three years.

Today, Supreme Court Justice David Kirby ordered that Brookes serve a detention order of a further 14 months and two weeks, to expire on September 22, 2011.

“The state’s justification for further detention and therapy is based upon Mr Brookes’ psychiatric and criminal history and his conduct after the extended supervision order was made,” Justice Kirby said in his judgment.

Brookes began therapy in March 2010.

“I wish you well in the progress that you appear to be making …,” Justice Kirby told Brookes in court.

Brookes thanked the judge before being handcuffed for his return trip to detention.

Sick paedophiles’ love behind bars

IT was a romance forged behind jail walls, based on a perverted desire to molest children.

And upon their release from Long Bay in 1987, Dennis Ferguson and Alexandria Brookes soon turned their sordid fantasy into reality. They kidnapped three children, flew them to Brisbane and sexually assaulted them.

Another spell in jail failed to dull Brookes’ terrible desires.

Two years after his release in 1999 he was again charged after luring a boy into a toilet block at Bankstown. When he reoffended in 2007, he was sentenced to another 12 months.

Until now Ferguson has worn all of the publicity over the notorious abduction, becoming Australia’s most infamous paedophile.

But Supreme Court documents provide chilling insights into the evil of Ferguson’s relatively anonymous accomplice.

Expert witnesses Patrick Sheehan and Dr Christopher J. Lennings believed Brookes presented a high risk of repeating sex offences. Mr Sheehan found the risk factors included “sexual impulsivity, sexual preoccupation and poor sexual boundaries”.

The court found his failure to control himself emotionally and sexually was “intertwined with his personality pathology and paraphilic sexual interest”. Dr Lennings said psychiatrists and psychologists had been unanimous over the years in concluding Brookes suffered from a “deeply entrenched and pervasive sexually deviant fantasy associated with young (prepubescent) children”.

Chillingly Dr Lennings found Brookes’s reluctance to be treated in custody and his poor response to treatment did nothing to reduce his risk to children.

The judge accepted all the evidence and delayed Brookes’s release from jail for another 28 days.

Now, 15 months later, he’s back in jail awaiting a hearing next month on charges of breaching an order not to contact certain people.
