Sex-offender cult leader to be monitored


Cult leader and sex offender William "Little Pebble" Kamm will have to wear electronic monitoring equipment after he was deemed a high-risk of re-offending and placed under supervision for a further five years.

The 65-year-old has claimed he communicates monthly with the Virgin Mary, who will choose 12 queens to receive his "mystical seed" and bear his children, and was in November 2014 granted parole.

He had spent nine years in jail for having sex with two 15-year-old girls, claiming God and the Virgin Mary told him to use them to repopulate the earth.

Both victims had lived in Mr Kamm's religious community "The Order of Saint Charbel" at Cambewarra, near Nowra.

The stubby sex offender has been found to be at high risk of re-offending and cannot live in his group's community as part of the extended supervision order (ESO), handed down in the Supreme Court on Friday by Justice Ian Harrison.

The court is also worried about Kamm's future residence, Justice Harrison saying the order was needed to prevent him from luring under-age followers to rural areas after parole expired and supervision ended.

"There are also real concerns Mr Kamm will further re-integrate with members of his order and position himself in a rural area, away from scrutiny and in a manner that will provide ready access to under-age followers," Justice Harrison wrote in his judgment.

"Mr Kamm's particular sexual predispositions appear to be almost intractable."

Outside court Kamm said he would adhere to the many conditions imposed as part of the order.

"Of course, I always do anyway," he told reporters, holding the hand of a middle-aged woman who was with him in the court.

As part of the supervision order Kamm must stay way from females under 17 years old, adhere to a 10pm-to-6am curfew, provide authorities with plans for his movements, remain in NSW and avoid Nowra, among other areas.

In August Kamm said his order had 50,000 followers across the world who met in weekly prayer groups.

The supervision order is set to expire in January 2021.
