A Perth Supreme Court judge has released Alwyn Wayne Brown, a sex offender with a string of convictions.

Brown, who has spent most of the last 16 years in jail, has been convicted for numerus offences including attempted sexual penetration of a child, indecent dealing and committing an indecent act. 

According to the ABC, some of the offences involved enticing young girls into secluded areas and molesting them.  He was declared a dangerous sex offender five years ago.

His crimes were committed between 1998 and 1999 and in 2003, after he had been release from prison.

Brown was released back in 2012 on a strict eight year supervision order before being taken back into custody the following year for breaching some of its conditions.

His case, which has been reviewed annually since he was declared a dangerous sex offender, was reviewed again earlier this year, Justice Peter Martino ruling today that Brown could be released under a five-year strict supervision order.

Subject to more than 50 conditions, Brown will be subjected to GPS monitoring and routine urine tests.  He will not be allowed to have any unsupervised contact with children, the ABC reported.
