Serial pedophile Kerry Patrick Valence, 55, to remain incarcerated indefinitely, admitting he enjoys his prison 'status'

A pedophile with a long history of molesting young boys will remain locked up indefinitely after revealing prison life gave him a "sense of purpose" and "status."
Brisbane Supreme Court judge Anthe Philippides this week found Kerry Patrick Valence, 55, remained a danger to the community and a detention order requiring him to stay in jail should remain in place.
Justice Philippides, in her five page written decision, noted medical expert evidence showed Valence seemed to enjoy prison life and the degree of status it brought him.
She said one psychologist was of the opinion Valence was "quite happy" to stay in jail.
"(Valence) is firmly settled in the prison environment and he has a sense of purpose at the prison and a degree of status there," Justice Phillipides said in referring to the report.
The court was told Valence told the psychologist: "I'm quite happy to be here if that's the way it has to be."
Justice Phillipides' order came during an annual review of Valence's case.
He has been held in custody since his full time release date elapsed in August 2009.
The then-Attorney General Cameron Dick went to the Supreme Court to get a detention order for Valence under the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003.
In the District Court on March 10, 2006, Valence was jailed for four years after being convicted of three counts of indecent treatment of children under 16 years, who were aged under 12.
The convicted pedophile started offending in New South Wales in 1975 and then again in 1980 when convicted of child sex offences, against victims aged 12 and eight.
Valence's most recent offences involved two boys aged about 10 years.
Barristers for Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie recently told Justice Phillipedes that Valence remained as much a danger to the community as he was at his last review.
"(The A-G) submits that there remains no combination of requirements of supervision which in the circumstances of this case is capable of reducing to an acceptable kind the likelihood of the respondent re-offending sexually against boys were he to be released," Justice Phillipides said.

Paedophile 'too dangerous' for release

A Queensland judge has rejected a serial paedophile's bid to be released from jail.
Kerry Patrick Valence, 56, represented himself on Tuesday as the Supreme Court considered whether to release him into the community.
Valence has been sexually abusing young boys since he was 18. He is currently in jail for abusing a boy in 2004.
He made no argument about why he should be released, apart from saying he disagreed with one of his psychiatrists' recollection of events.
In affidavits read out to the court, Valence's psychiatrists described him as being in denial over his crimes, and of the belief his victims consented.
The court also heard Valence had refused to actively take part in programs to help address his pedophilia.
Justice David Jackson said there was a serious risk Valence would reoffend, and rejected his bid for freedom.
'The risk of reoffending remains high,' Justice Jackson said.
'Little progress has been made to date ... to decrease the risk.'
The ruling comes ahead of a court appeal on Wednesday aimed at keeping another serial sex offender in jail.
Robert John Fardon was released from jail into supervised emergency accommodation on Friday, after Supreme Court judge Peter Lyons refused an application to delay his release.
But he was back behind bars just two hours later after Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie sought an urgent hearing in the Court of Appeal.
Fardon remains in custody ahead of Wednesday's hearing, when an appeal against the decision to free him will be heard.

Pedophile Kerry Patrick Valence's views about a child's ability to consent to sex ensure he will remain behind bars

A pedophile with a long history of molesting boys will remain behind bars indefinitely after it was found he continued to have inappropriate views on children's ability to consent to sexual activity.
In the Supreme Court in Brisbane, Acting Justice Julie Dick found Kerry Patrick Valence remained a danger to the community and a detention order requiring him to stay in jail should remain in place.
Justice Dick had been reviewing Valence's case after he had been held in custody since his full time release date elapsed in August 2009.
The then Attorney General Cameron Dick went to the Supreme Court to get a detention order for Valence under the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003.
The order was reaffirmed at an annual review last year and was up for another review on Monday.
In the District Court on March 10, 2006, Valence was jailed for four years after being convicted of three counts of indecent treatment of children under 16 years, who were under 12.
The court heard Valence, now 54, started offending in New South Wales in 1975 and 1980 when convicted of child sex offences, against victims aged 12 and eight.
The court heard Valence's most recent offences involved two boys aged about 10 years.
At a review hearing, psychiatrist Dr Michael Beech, who compiled a report on Valence, said Valence still held entrenched beliefs about children and them consenting to sexual activity.
He said Valence had offended on four occasions and he did not see how a supervision order could be framed to ensure Valence stayed away from children.
Dr Beech said Valence needed to complete the High Intensity Sexual Offenders Program (HISOP) before his release into the community.
