A serial rapist who was run out of a rural West Australian town after his release from jail has been fined for breaching his bail conditions.
Patrick Alfred Dennis Comeagain, 41, pleaded guilty in Perth Magistrates Court on Tuesday to contravening a requirement of a supervision order without reasonable excuse.
It was alleged that at a scheduled appointment, Comeagain disclosed he had visited a relative's house where children were present.
His release was subject to 43 conditions including seeking approval if he was to be in contact with children.
He was fined $1000 and ordered to pay court costs.
Comeagain was released from prison in June on a strict supervision order that included curfews and electronic monitoring.
The Department of Corrective Services was forced to relocate Comeagain from a Wheatbelt town within days of him moving there over concerns for his safety, after backlash from locals in the community.
The town's residents were reportedly given no warning about Comeagain moving in, and some female residents had fled town or begun arming themselves for protection.
Comeagain was handed an indefinite detention order in October 2008.
He had spent most of his adult life in prison, and had five episodes of serious sexual offending, starting in 1987 when he was 15.
The victims were generally adult women, but five offences in 1994 were committed against a nine-year-old girl.
