A child-sex offender has been jailed for 17 months for further offending.

Jason Bryan Michie, 26, was given an eight-month suspended sentence last year for indecently assaulting a seven-year-old boy.

He was put on a good behaviour bond and the sex offenders register.

The Adelaide District Court heard Michie later was found with more than 160 images and 10 videos of child pornography.

He also joined Port Noarlunga Surf Lifesaving Club and the Country Fire Service and a scouts application package was found

at his home, along with a St John Ambulance volunteer uniform and an after-hours school care name badge.

The hearing was told Michie advertised online for babysitting work and received one reply.

Judge David Smith said the advertisement read: “I have a national police certificate and safe work around children certificate.

I can do most things whilst babysitting, preparing food, helping with homework, bath time etcetera. I have experience with

children with special needs and children with hearing problems”.

Judge Smith said Michie faced sexual abuse as a child, something only recently uncovered by a psychologist.

“When you were eight years old you were sexually abused by a friend of your father … you did not complain to your parents

at the time,” he said.

“Plainly you require treatment for the abuse you suffered … It is a significant contributor to your sexual offending.”

The hearing was told Michie regretted his actions.

His sentencing included a range of traffic offences, including using a motor scooter while disqualified.

A non-parole term of a year was set.

Sex offender back before courts

A man who referred to himself as a “kiddy toucher” has faced court after breaching terms imposed by the sex offenders register.

Jason Bryan Michie, 25, was given an eight-month suspended jail sentence last year for indecently assaulting a seven-year-old boy in his care.

At the latest hearing, the Adelaide District Court was told Michie became a volunteer at the Port Noarlunga Surf Life Saving Club and Country Fire Service just a month after his conviction.

Prosecutor Patrick Hill told the court community programs linked with those organisations would have exposed Michie to children.

The court heard Michie failed to comply with reporting obligations by moving to a shed at the back of a house where a child aged 18 months lived.

When Michie represented himself in court previously, he told a judge he did not believe he deserved legal aid because it was not for “kiddy touchers”.

At the latest hearing, Judge Simon Stretton told Michie, who again represented himself, to find a lawyer.

“You need to understand that you are at serious risk of going to jail, you don’t seem to be taking this seriously,” he said.

“It’s not certain you’ll go to jail but you are going to be significantly assisted if you have legal representation, that is a matter for you but I suggest you make it your highest priority.”

The hearing was adjourned until July.
