Former Fraser Coast liaison officer gets jail again

A FORMER Fraser Coast liaison officer, once jailed for having "an unhealthy sexual obsession" with a 14-year-old girl, has been locked up again for preying on a teen at Caboolture.

Vincent Michael Terare, 44, was found guilty after a trial in Brisbane District Court this week for trying to procure a teenage girl under 16 years of age to do indecent acts for him.

He was sentenced to six months' jail but will not become eligible to apply for parole in January next year because of previous offences.

The girl, in a recorded police video to the court, described how Terare did not want to ask out loud so he allegedly wrote his request on a piece of paper, in return for not revealing a secret the girl hoped to conceal.

The girl said she refused to perform the act, saying: "I can't do that, it's not right".

She told police Terare was okay with her answer, ripped up the piece of paper and put it in a bin.

The girl was then asked, if she would not do that, whether she would just lie on top of him for a while or open her legs so he could see under her dress and then masturbate.

The girl said she refused each subsequent request.

The offences took place in September 2011.

Terare also had been sentenced to 18 months' jail, suspended after four months, in 2010 after pleading guilty to seven counts of indecently treating a child.

That court heard Terare was under "limited" supervision in police liaison, not a sworn police officer, and he had access to a police car.

He would kiss the girl and repeatedly tell her he wanted to have sex.

The victim told police she felt intimidated and uncomfortable.
