Notorious child sex offender who abused young boys to be freed from prison despite him searching Grinder within days of his previous release

  • Paedophile Gary John Tipping, 33, is set to once again be freed from jail
  • He breached his extended supervision order by accessing online dating services
  • The judge said he had not committed a further offence with his latest behaviour

A notorious South Australian child sex offender who breached the conditions of his release within weeks last year is set to once again be freed from jail.

Gary John Tipping, 33, breached his extended supervision order by accessing online chat and dating services despite being directed not to use the internet at all.

It prompted his return to custody with prosecutors applying for him to be detained for another four and a half years.

But in a Supreme Court judgment on Monday, Justice Kevin Nicholson said while Tipping plainly remained a person who required close and frequent supervision, he had not committed a further offence with his latest behaviour.

Gary John Tipping, 33, had previously been jailed for abusing boys as young as eight. He then breached his extended supervision order by accessing online chat and dating services despite being directed not to use the internet at all

The judge said in his view, the risk to the community posed by Tipping had not increased since the earlier assessment that he be released.

‘Indeed, that risk may well have been reduced by the fact that the breach or breaches of the extended supervision order committed by the respondent have caused him to be detained in custody for a further approximately four months,’ Justice Nicholson said.

‘In fact, the respondent has now spent more than 12 months in custody not having committed any offence and not subject to any outstanding charges.’

The decision to release Tipping last year drew widespread criticism after the court heard he remained unwilling to control his sexual urges and would be at significant risk of reoffending.

He had previously been jailed for abusing boys as young as eight.

But an application at the time by Attorney-General Vickie Chapman to have him jailed indefinitely was knocked back on the basis home detention monitoring could ensure the safety of the community.

Justice Nicholson said he expected Tipping now had a keen understanding of the ‘fragility’ of his freedom and the importance of complying with the terms of his release.

‘I take the view that the respondent ought to be given another opportunity to comply with the ESO and to remain out of custody,’ he said.

However, the judge said before arriving at a final conclusion and before making final orders he would stand the matter over for a short period to allow for arrangements to be made for Tipping’s future accommodation and supervision in the community.

He said counsel would also be permitted to apply to vary the terms of Tipping’s extended supervision order.
