A convicted sex offender is back behind bars after it was claimed that he breached a supervision order.

Junius Caines appeared before Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons in the Supreme Court and was ordered back to jail at Westgate Correctional Facility on Tuesday for breaching the court order.

The court heard that he broke his curfew, failed a urine test for drugs and alcohol and failed to recharge his electronic monitoring device for nine days

Crown Counsel Nicole Smith told the court that Caines was warned about his breaches on December 3 and that  he broke his curfew again on the same night.

Caines, 50, was released from prison in June, after serving time for the attempted rape of a woman back in 2016.

Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons told Caines that drugs and a lack of supervision was a “toxic mix”.

“That toxic mix is coming and the court has a duty to protect the public and Mr Caines,” she said.

“The safety and wellbeing of the community is at risk if the court accepts the reports made against him, and the court does accept those reports.”

Caines was remanded in custody until December 20, to allow the Crown time to decide whether or not he will be prosecuted in Magistrates’ Court for the alleged breaches, or if they will find a more intensive treatment programme for him.

He was released in June on the condition that required him to abide by a curfew from 8pm until 7am, abstain from the use of alcohol or drugs and receive treatment.

The Crown also called on the court to order Caines to wear an electronic monitoring device, which he argued against, claiming that it released “radiation” that would cause him pain due to a leg injury.

Initially, he was released without a device on an interim supervision order, with orders to provide evidence.

Ultimately, he was ordered to wear the device in September after failing to provide evidence supporting his claims.
