Info sourced from the Court of Appeal document
"The pre-sentence report described the appellant as having a "propensity for predatory sexual behaviour" and went on:
... and given that he has already been engaged in an intensive rehabilitative programme, his risk of re-offending is assessed as very high. This risk is particularly of concern when an established sex offender such as John Rowe is also committing Burglaries."
The report also referred to a propensity for violence and offence-related sexual arousal (in particular, a thrill associated with the covert pursuit of victims prior to offending).
John Christopher Rowe previous offending includes: (a) Two offences of indecent assault and one of performing an indecent act, committed in 1987; (b) Performing an indecent act, committed in 1988; (c) Attempted sexual violation, committed in 1990; (d) Performing an indecent act, committed in 1991; (e) Sexual violation by unlawful sexual connection, committed in 1992; (f) Indecent assault and performing an indecent act, committed in 1993; (g) Performing an indecent act, committed in 1994; (h) Performing an indecent act, committed in 1996; and (i) Two offences of performing an indecent act, committed in 1997.
