Dangerous sex offender released in 2015 thrown back in prison indefinitely

A dangerous sex offender released from jail in 2015 under a stringent supervision order is back in prison indefinitely after breaching his release order on three occasions.

Warren John Ricky Ugle was released from jail two years ago despite the fact the WA Supreme Court believed he remained a serious danger to the community.

Since his release on November 24, 2015, Ugle has contravened his supervision order on three occasions by using cannabis and methamphetamine.

In a decision delivered in the WA Supreme Court on Wednesday, Justice Bruno Fiannaca said he believed Ugle was at risk of committing further sex crimes.

He rescinded the 2015 supervision order and made a new continuing detention order, meaning Ugle, who is aged in his 40s, will be detained in custody indefinitely.

"On the evidence now before the court, I am satisfied on the balance of probabilities that there is an unacceptable risk that the respondent (Ugle) would commit a serious sexual offence if a continuing detention order were not made," Justice Fiannaca said.

He has served long periods of jail time for four separate sex attacks on women and an 11-year-old girl.

Macker Joseph Dinah, 56, was released from prison on June 30 under a seven year supervision order.

But Dinah found himself back in court on Thursday after admitting to two breaches of his supervision order.
