Raymond Barry Cornwall Captured Sex Offender


A sex offender recaptured after allegedly breaching the conditions of his release from jail is back behind bars after being refused bail by a NSW court.

Raymond Barry Cornwall was caught at 8.20am (AEDT) Friday after an off-duty police officer recognised him while jogging on a beach near Wollongong.

Cornwall had been on the run since Wednesday afternoon, when he absconded from his approved Parramatta accommodation 30 minutes after being dropped off.

Earlier that day, he won his release from prison in a successful appeal against a NSW Supreme Court decision to detain him for eight months beyond the expiry of his 14-year sentence.

The NSW Court of Appeal instead imposed a conditional five-year supervision order and approved his release subject to strict conditions, which he is alleged to have immediately breached.

The 52-year-old man made no bail application when he appeared in Wollongong Local Court on Friday afternoon on one count of failing to comply with an extended/interim supervision order.

Bail was formally refused and he was remanded in custody to face Sydney’s Central Local Court on January 15 by audio visual link from prison.
