ORDER: Colin Fisk is to be supervised for another three-and-a-half years.

A NEWCASTLE Supreme Court judge ordered yesterday that notorious pedophile Colin John Fisk should remain under strict supervision for the next 31/2 years.

Fisk, a former associate of Robert "Dolly" Dunn and Phillip Bell, was convicted for sexual offences against under-aged males committed between 1971 and 1988.

Fisk, 61, was released in May after serving 12 years in jail and placed under a supervision order that expired yesterday.

The interim order imposed restrictions on his place of residence, treatment, drug, alcohol and internet use and who he associated with.

The Crown applied to the NSW Supreme Court to have a five-year supervision order placed on Fisk.

Fisk's lawyers argued there was insufficient evidence to prove he was likely to reoffend in the next five years and if an order was to be made he should be allowed to stay at a property in country NSW.

Justice Roderick Howie ordered yesterday that Fisk be supervised for a further 31/2 years but be allowed to live at the country residence after six months.
