Convicted pedophile and former NSW Labor MP Milton Orkopoulos could be sent back to prison after being charged with three additional counts of breaching his parole conditions.
Orkopoulos will appear at Waverley Local Court on Thursday to answer the fresh charges, including being caught with an unapproved mobile phone.
The 62-year-old was already before the courts facing two counts of breaching his parole in January.
Orkopoulos was arrested at his Malabar home on Wednesday and taken to Maroubra Police Station where he was charged.
It was the second time the former Iemma government Aboriginal affairs minister had been arrested since his release from Long Bay jail in December after serving 11 and a half years for child sex offences.
Orkopoulos was previously detained on January 22 after allegedly setting up an Instagram account without informing police and talking to a child while on a phone call with one of his adult children.
He pleaded not guilty and remained on parole but now he's in danger of being sent back to prison.
Corrective Services NSW has written to the State Parole Authority asking for his parole to be revoked.
Orkopoulos did not appear on Wednesday when his matter was briefly heard in Waverley Local Court and adjourned until Thursday.
Orkopoulos's lawyer, Michael Vo, said outside court he would be making a bail application on Thursday, when police will apply for his client to be kept in custody.
The former state politician was jailed in 2008 after being convicted of 30 offences, including having sexual intercourse with a male aged between 10 and 18 years, possessing child pornography, and supplying cannabis and heroin.
Orkopoulos had 18 parole conditions imposed on him when he was released in late 2019 despite his head sentence not expiring until October 2021.
He was granted parole by the SPA after the Serious Offenders Review Council and Corrections recommended he be released on supervised parole.
