Sex menace Michael McGarry a 'serious danger' - Supreme Court judge
Serial sex offender Michael McGarry will stay behind bars indefinitely after a Supreme Court judge ruled he continues to pose a "serious danger'' to the community.
In Justice Stephen Hall's judgment on McGarry's annual review, released today, he said McGarry's risk of re-offending could not be managed by way of a community supervision order.
"It is clear on the evidence that Mr McGarry remains a serious danger to the community," he said.
McGarry, 50, has been convicted of numerous child sex offences since 1985 and is being held in prison indefinitely under WA's Dangerous Sex Offender laws.
He is one of a handful of WA prisoners held under the tough legislation, designed to keep notorious sex offenders behind bars.
In 2009, McGarry was released on a community supervision order but was arrested within days after breaching the strict conditions.
During his annual prisoner review last month, the Supreme Court was told he had received psychiatric treatment and was taking anti-libidinal medication, though he had reported he had halved the amount of medication he was taking because of the drug's side-effects.
The court also heard police had raised concerns about where McGarry would live if released.
McGarry will be reviewed again next year.
Sex offender Michael McGarry loses bid for early release review
Serial sex offender Michael McGarry has failed in his bid to have his indefinite term of detention
reviewed this year.
Michael Alexander McGarry applied to the Supreme Court to have his ongoing detention under WA’s
dangerous sex offender laws reviewed this August.
But the State Director of Public Prosecutions argued the review should not take place until
August next year, a year after his earliest possible release date.
Mr McGarry committed sex offences against women and girls in the mid-1980s and completed a
five-year jail term in January 2009.
He was sent back to prison just days after being released for breaching strict orders which
were imposed on him when he was freed from jail.
He was sentenced to an additional 18-months prison last year for two previous sex offences
committed against children in the 1990s and in 2003.
This morning Justice John McKechnie ruled the first annual review of Mr McGarry’s ongoing
detention would be held on a date after August 4 2012.
Mr McGarry’s lawyer David McKenzie had argued that when the continuing detention order was
handed down in September 2009, Mr McGarry was not serving a term of imprisonment and
therefore was not in custody.
Justice McKechnie rejected the argument.
“There is a distinct difference between in custody and imprisonment,” Justice McKechnie said.
“A person may be detained in custody for many purposes. A person who was arrested by
police is in lawful custody.
“The Dangerous Sex Offenders (DSO) Act itself provides another example as illustrated in this case.”
Paedophile fights for jail term review
Notorious paedophile Michael Alexander McGarry is embroiled in a legal stoush with State prosecutors over when his indefinite jail term for predatory Behaviour against children should be reviewed by the Supreme Court.
McGarry, 49, wants the Supreme Court to review his ongoing detention under the State's dangerous sex offender laws in August this year, 12 months before prosecutors say his case should be reconsidered.
McGarry's case sparked heated community debate when the Supreme Court granted his release in August 2009 on a supervision order which included 52 conditions, including a curfew, limited access to shopping centres and a ban on contact with children.
He was arrested less than 10 days after his release for breaching two of the conditions, which included meeting one of his victims four days after he was allowed to return to the community.
In February last year, McGarry was sentenced to a further 18 months jail for two historic sex offences committed against children in 1994 and 2003. The offences came to light after his supervised release was granted.
In the Supreme Court this morning, prosecutor Tom Scutt said McGarry's indefinite detention should not be reviewed until August next year.
Mr Scutt said the order would only become due for a review a year after his earliest release date on the additional jail term imposed in February.
But defence lawyer David McKenzie said McGarry argued that the review should be conducted in August this year.
Justice John McKechnie said the question would need to be resolved by the court and adjourned the case until May.

Sex Fiend Locked Away Again
Sexual deviant Michael Alexander McGarry was jailed indefinitely
yesterday after a District Court juge ruled he would remain a danger to
society if released.
The 43-year-old compulsive sex offender has the rare distinction of being
given "the key"- prison jargon for indefinite terms- twice for different
In 1998, then District Court chief judge Kevin Hammond imposed an
indefinite term on top of McGarry's five-year term for masturbating in front
of an 11-year-old girl he tracked down after her photograph appeared in a
But in September 2001, he walked free after the High Court ruled
indefinite terms should be ordered only sparingly and in clear-cut cases.
Seven months later McGarry grabbed a 14-year-old girl who was walking to
school on an isolated footpath in Bull Creek. He dragged her into bush, tore
her clothes off and masturbated in front of her.
McGarry had a shocking record of sex offences dating back to 1985,
including aggravated sexual assault, indecent dealing, wilful exposure and
having evil designs.
His offences escalated in the early 1990s and he was jailed for nearly
eight years for sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl.
In sentencing, Judge Michael Muller said was possible McGarry, formerly
of Palmyra, could be helped by intensive long-term treatment involving a
mixture of hormones to suppress sex drive, anti-depressants and one-on-one
It was essential that McGarry undergo compulsory post-release supervision
and treatment but he could not enforce it.
"He would be free in the community with no supervision or treatment plan
in place," Judge Muller said.
"In that situation the risk of his reoffendng seriously is exceptionally
He sentenced McGarry to four years jail and refused parole before
imposing an indefinite sentence on top.

Perth Paedophile Jailed Indefinitely
ONE of Western Australia's worst paedophiles, branded a sexual predator
of young girls for almost two decades, was today jailed indefinitely for
the second time in six years today.
Michael Alexander McGarry, now 43, had already been sentenced
to an indefinite jail term in 1998 but was released in 2001 after
the High Court quashed the ruling.
Within months, McGarry was arrested after an attack on a 14-year-old
Rossmoyne schoolgirl, who was bundled to the ground and stripped naked
from the waist down before McGarry performed an indecent act beside her.
Passing sentence in the District Court today for this attack, and another
on an eight-year-old girl in a Perth park, Judge Michael Muller said McGarry
posed a serious threat to society and should be locked up indefinitely.
"I am satisfied that if released at the end of the nominal sentence,
the offender ... would engage in conduct the consequences of the commission
of which would properly be called grave or serious for society as a whole,"
Judge Muller said in his written decision.
Handing down a three-year concurrent jail term for the two attacks, Judge
Muller used his discretion saying he was not willing to give McGarry parole.
Without the provision of parole McGarry could not be compelled to undergo
treatment on his release.
"He would be free in the community with no supervision or
treatment plan in place. In that situation the risk of his
re-offending seriously is exceptionally high," Judge Muller said.
"It simply cannot be allowed to happen."
At a hearing earlier this month, the court was told by
psychologists that despite completing sex offender treatments
in jail, just six months after his release McGarry dragged
the 14-year-old schoolgirl into bushland, stripped her and
then blindfolded her with her own clothes, before masturbating
Judge Muller today described the attack on the teenager as "depraved and disgusting".
"It is understandable how she must have feared the very worst," Judge Muller said.
"Her inability to see what was happening must have made the situation even
McGarry's history of sex offending prompted the judge who imposed the indefinite
sentence in 1998, then District Court Chief Justice Kevin Hammond, to rule him
a danger to the community.
His first conviction, for an act of wilful exposure, was recorded in 1985 and a
similar offence later that year led to a three-month jail term.
In 1991, there followed convictions for 21 aggravated indecent assaults, four
counts of aggravated sexual assault, and seven counts of wilful exposure,
involving two girls aged eight and 10 years-old.
The offence for which McGarry received his first indefinite sentence involved
him tracking down an 11-year-old girl, whose picture had appeared in
a local newspaper.
After using the telephone directory to find her home address, he
went to the house, knocked on the window and performed an indecent
act in front of the girl, and her 14-year-old sister.
