CONVICTED pedophile Ashleigh Edward Jarrold had his non-parole period almost doubled yesterday after the Court of Criminal Appeal found the former Hamilton dentist's sentence was too lenient.
Jarrold was not before the court in Sydney when the decision was handed down.
He was sentenced last year to five years' imprisonment with a non-parole period of three years after he pleaded guilty to eight charges relating to historical child sexual assaults and child pornography and grooming offences committed last year.
That sentence was increased yesterday to seven years and five months' imprisonment with a non-parole period of 5? years.
He will now be eligible for parole in March 2015.
Jarrold was charged in October 2008 with indecently assaulting two boys in the 1970s.
He initially pleaded not guilty.
However, he changed those pleas on the eve of his trial after he was charged with the child pornography and grooming offences last September.
Jarrold saved online conversations he had from 2003 onwards where he gave detailed descriptions of sex acts he claimed to have carried out with boys involving torture and bodily waste, Newcastle District Court previously heard.
He told one man that he obtained sexual pleasure from children screaming or whimpering in pain and masturbated during live web-cam recordings with an English teenager.
During one online chat, Jarrold wrote: "Have to kill them so they wouldn't [go to the police]."
He later wrote: "Don't think I could actually kill anyone . . . but the rest would be fun."
Jarrold also wrote about a teenager who had lunch at Jarrold's home.
He said a group of men had sex with the teenager, who told police he was 17 at the time.
