Convicted sex fiend 'loitered near school'

Convicted sex fiend Kenneth Beer has appeared in court after he was allegedly found loitering near Lara Lake Primary School.
Beer, 60, of Kanowna Place, Lara, is also charged with failing to disclose his employment to police in keeping with National Sex Register requirements.
Beer was convicted of possessing and producing child pornography in Geelong Magistrates' Court in 2006 and sentenced to nine months jail, with three months to serve and the remainder suspended for two years.
He was also placed on the National Sex Register for 15 years.
Evidence seized from Beer's house in relation to those charges included disks containing footage of adults having sex with animals, people urinating and defecating and 11 movie files containing footage of children of all ages taking part in sexually explicit acts with children and adults.
Written stories about children having sex were also found on Beer's computer hard-drive.
So disturbing was the material that sentencing Magistrate Jon Klestadt described it as being "objectionable in the worst way".
During yesterday's hearing, police prosecutor, Leading Senior Constable Rohan Mifsud said, that about 8.45am on Tuesday, August 31, 2010, a woman was dropping off her young son at Lara Lake Primary School, when she recognised Beer, sitting in his car, which was parked on the nature strip outside the school bike shed.
"She told police Beer's car was facing north directly into the children's playground area," Sen-Constable Mifsud said.
"Beer attended Geelong Police Station for his annual (Sex Register) interview in November and told police he had been working part-time as a butcher at a supermarket in Hamlyn Heights since March 15.
"He denied being at the primary school that day, saying he would only have gone there to vote and that would have been on a Saturday."
Shane Balkin, for Beer, said his client conceded he was at the school that day but was on his way to pick up a co-worker called Sarah and got the address wrong.
"He pulled up at the school and got his Melways out and later picked Sarah up," Mr Balkin said.
"He tells me he doesn't know Sarah's last name but can call her to confirm this."
Mr Balkin said that because his client works part-time and "cash-in-hand", he did not have time-sheets to prove he was working that day, but said Sarah could vouch for him.
Magistrate Ron Saines directed Beer to notify the police informant within seven days of the name and address of the person known as Sarah for the purpose of a police interview.
The matter was then adjourned for further mention on June 14
