Residents 'in dark' over paedophile
Residents in a southern Perth suburb have expressed shock after learning
a convicted paedophile still deemed a "serious danger" had been released into their community.
WAtoday.com.au yesterday revealed
Alwyn Wayne Brown had been released from prison to live in Melville under a strict supervision order to last eight years.
In his judgement earlier this week, Judge John McKechnie acknowledged Brown remained a serious danger to the community and would need to take anti-libido medication to suppress his sexual fantasies.
A spokesman for Federal Member for Tangney Dennis Jensen said his office had received a high number of calls and emails from concerned Melville residents.
Most were parents and all were concerned about Brown living in their community, he said.
"They are feeling in the dark," the spokesman said.
Opposition police spokeswoman Michelle Roberts said it was unacceptable to release such an offender into the community.
"This is someone, whose attempted to abduct and rape a six-year-old, who's then been released and then assaulted a 10-year-old," she said.
"I don't think anyone in the community would find it acceptable that this paedophile has been released to go and live in the suburbs.
"There is no place for this person in the community.
"You cannot supervise someone like this, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week in the community."
She said the efforts to monitor Brown would put already stretched police resources under further pressure.
Ms Roberts said the government needed to act.
"What is the government doing?" she said.
"Are they appealing this decision? Are they going to take it to the court of appeal and make a case on behalf of the community of Western Australia, to have this person put back inside?"
In his decision, Judge McKechnie said that while Brown remained at high risk of committing another serious sexual offence the likelihood could be managed by a supervision order.
He acknowledged there were a number of schools, buses, shopping precincts, sporting complexes and public spaces nearby Brown's address, which has been suppressed.
Conditions of his release included that he continued to take anti-libido medication and not have contact with any child aged under 16.
Sex offender moves into suburbs
A child sex offender still deemed a "serious danger" to the community has been
released on parole to live in a Perth suburb.
Supreme Court Judge John McKechnie said although Alwyn Wayne Brown remained at
high risk of committing another serious sexual offence the likelihood could be
managed by a supervision order.
He released Brown to live in Melville under strict conditions including that he
continue to take anti-libido medication and not have contact with any child aged under 16.
The supervision order will apply for eight years from yesterday.
In his judgement, Judge McKechnie acknowledged there were a number of schools, buses,
shopping precincts, sporting complexes and public spaces nearby Brown's address,
which has been suppressed.
The court heard Brown did not deny that he remained a serious danger to the community.
However, he had received counselling to address his "deviant sexual fantasies" and
general problem solving.
Since taking anti-libido medication Brown said he had experienced a decrease in sexual
fantasies and a diminished excitement from the fantasies he did have.
Under the supervision order, Brown will also have to continue psychiatric treatment and
He cannot consume alcohol or drugs, must regularly report to police and comply with a
curfew for the first six months, and have no contact, directly or indirectly,
with any of his victims.
Judge McKechnie recommended Brown's supervision order be reviewed in two years.

Notorious sex offender released
A child sex offender who was jailed indefinitely in 2010 because of an "unacceptable risk" he
would commit a "serious sexual offence" if set free has been released into the community under
a strict eight-year supervision order.
In a judgment handed down by Supreme Court Judge John McKechnie, Alwyn Wayne Brown was deemed
to be a "serious danger to the community" but was released to live in Melville under strict
conditions, including a daily curfew.
Brown has spent most of the past 14 years in prison for a series of sexual attacks on girls
aged six to 12.
Brown will be required to live at a specified address in Melville and undergo libido-suppressing
drug treatments and counselling. He was also ordered to have no contact with his victims or any
child under the age of 16 years of age.
The judgment noted Brown had made "significant progress" during counselling sessions towards
"better understanding his offending behaviour". Brown had also voluntarily taken anti-libidinal
medication to "manage his deviant sexual fantasies by diminishing sexual arousal".
Following the introduction of the drug Androcur, Brown reported a decrease in sexual fantasies
and blood tests had shown a decrease in the level of testosterone post medication, the judgment said.
Brown's treating psychologist had pointed out that there were benefits for treating within the
community as opposed to prison.
"Certain issues cannot be particularly addressed in prison because the person is not exposed to
certain circumstances, such as being in a relationship, dealing with regular domestic issues,
or self-management in the community," the judgment said.
Judge McKechnie said the supervision order had to be lengthy, but "not so long as to crush all
hope by being so burdensome that the respondent loses motivation to comply". He recommended a
review of the terms of supervision in two years.
In December 2010 Supreme Court Justice Eric Heenan ruled in favour of the Director of Public
Prosecution's application for an indefinite detention order for Brown, and said there was an
"unacceptable risk" the 40-year old would commit a "serious sexual offence" if set free.
Brown was due to be released in June 2010, having spent all but six months of the prior 12 years
in prison for child sex offences, but his jail term was extended.
Brown was jailed in 1999 for luring a six-year-old girl from a Broome hostel and attempting to
sexually penetrate her. He was released in July 2003 but was returned to jail in December that
year for sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl in Morley, an offence for which he received a
4½ year jail term.
In 2007, DNA evidence linked him to a November 2003 sex assault of two girls aged eight and
12 years old. Brown took the sisters into a storeroom of a unit under construction in
Bedford before blocking the door so they could not leave and committed an indecent act.
Two years were added to the prison time he was already serving.
Between 1995 and 1997 he was convicted of a number of sexual assault offences in NSW.
In November 1998 he was convicted of three counts of wilful and obscene exposure in public in Victoria.
