NSW sex offender to stay under state watch

A NOTORIOUS NSW sex offender will remain under the state’s watch for another three years after a judge found he continues to pose an unacceptable risk.

The state of NSW sought a court order to keep Colin John Fisk under extended supervision that would force him to comply to a raft of restrictions over his employment, his accommodation, his personal appearance, his movements and who he associates with.

The 64-year-old has been subject to such an order since being released from prison in May 2009 after serving 12 years for a large number of sexual offences against boys from 1971 to 1988.

At the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday, Justice Robert Beech-Jones placed a further order on Fisk, saying that his attitudes coupled with his history of offending meant there continued to be a moderate to high risk that he would reoffend.

Justice Beech-Jones pointed to a “concerning” instance in May last year when Fisk had contact with a 16-year-old boy at a train station and offered him cigarettes.

According to the boy, Fisk suggested he post a video of himself on YouTube and commented on other lewd videos available on the web.

Talking to a forensic psychiatrist about the encounter, Fisk confided that he felt “in tune” with the boy and wanted to help with his “cultural development”.

Justice Beech-Jones said the incident highlighted how Fisk continued to harbour “romantic self-delusions” and that he readily engaged in sexualised banter with people he meets.

The court heard that while Fisk now understood that society did not condone his attraction to underage males he had a “long standing tendency to see himself as a martyr and victim of the system”.

He had also expressed the view that his previous victims “benefited from his life guidance”.

Fisk was a former associate of convicted pedophile Robert “Dolly” Dunn and was a subject of significant publicity when he gave evidence before the NSW royal commission into police corruption in the 1990s.

Justice Beech-Jones said that while Fisk had not reoffended since leaving prison, he might come to believe he could do so without detection if he was not supervised.

Newcastle Supreme Court orders further supervision for Colin John Fisk

A NEWCASTLE Supreme Court judge ordered yesterday that notorious pedophile Colin John Fisk should remain under strict supervision for the next 31/2 years.

Fisk, a former associate of Robert “Dolly” Dunn and Phillip Bell, was convicted for sexual offences against under-aged males committed between 1971 and 1988.

Fisk, 61, was released in May after serving 12 years in jail and placed under a supervision order that expired yesterday.

The interim order imposed restrictions on his place of residence, treatment, drug, alcohol and internet use and who he associated with.

The Crown applied to the NSW Supreme Court to have a five-year supervision order placed on Fisk.

Fisk’s lawyers argued there was insufficient evidence to prove he was likely to reoffend in the next five years and if an order was to be made he should be allowed to stay at a property in country NSW.

Justice Roderick Howie ordered yesterday that Fisk be supervised for a further 31/2 years but be allowed to live at the country residence after six months.
