A DANISH national who had sex with a 14-year-old boy in a toilet cubicle and paid a girl, also 14, for sex has been jailed for more than seven years.

Henrik Larsen, 36, met the boy through a teenage gay and bisexual chat website before they had two sexual encounters in a Melbourne toilet block, the Victorian County Court heard.

Larsen then asked the boy if he knew any girls who would be interested in a threesome, and the boy sent him a photo and details of a girl, then aged 14.

Larsen met the girl four times between 2008 and 2009 and paid her in exchange for sexual favours.

He was also found to have over 2000 child pornography images on his computer.

Police arrested Larsen after the girl told her social worker about him.

Judge Pamela Jenkins in sentencing today said Larsen took advantage of vulnerable children and exploited them for his own gratification.

“Your behaviour demonstrates a serious lack of insight … and contempt for your victims,” she said.

“You knew what you were doing was wrong.”

Larsen pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16, two of an indecent act with a child under 16 and single counts of agreeing to use a child for sexual service, knowingly possessing child pornography and using a carriage service to send and receive child pornography.

He was jailed for seven years and nine months with a minimum term of four-and-a half years.

Danish national Henrik Kim Larsen wants to stay in Australia despite teen sex offences

A FOREIGN sex offender wants to stay in Australia despite pleading guilty to having sex with two children, a court heard.

Danish national Henrik Kim Larsen, 36, of Richmond, had sex with a 14-year-old boy in a public toilet and paid a girl, also 14, for sex, the County Court heard.

Larsen, who migrated to Australia seven years ago, also pleaded guilty to knowingly possessing child pornography after police discovered hundreds of sickening images on his laptop.

The court was told Larsen had applied for permanent residency as a skilled migrant in June last year – during the course of his sex offending.

He was arrested at his work on Christmas Eve last year and charged with a total of 10 offences.

Larsen’s lawyer Leighton Gwynn told the court it was Larsen’s passion to live in Australia and he had recently become engaged to an Australian woman.

His fiance was in court today to support him.

Mr Gwynn conceded his client would be likely to fail the test of good character and his residency application would not be approved.

“There is a high degree of probability on release from custody he will lose the opportunity to stay here,” he said.

The court heard Larsen arranged a sexual liaison with the boy in after meeting him in an online gay and bisexual chatroom between December 2007 and February 2008.

He met the boy twice for sex in the toilets of a South Yarra shopping centre before asking the boy to put him in contact with a girl.

After being introduced to the girl, Larsen met her four times between June 2008 and September 2009 and paid her a total of $440 for sex plus $200 when she threatened to tell police.

In her victim impact statement, the girl said she suffered panic attacks, trouble sleeping and bouts of sadness.

Mr Gwynn said the offences began when Larsen became lonely after ending a four-year relationship with a woman.

Prosecutor Susan Borg told the court Larsen had selfishly taken advantage of the teens.

“There are many times in a person’s life when loneliness sets in and it’s a concern that he reached out to a child to satisfy his own needs,” Ms Borg said.

She called for a minimum three and a half year jail term.

Judge Pamela Jenkins will sentence Larsen on October 12.
