Child sex offender Pierre John Parsons is subject to a 10-year extended supervision order.

A high-risk sex offender will be extensively monitored for another decade after abducting and sexually violating a 12-year-old girl.

Pierre John Parsons was sentenced in 1995 to concurrent sentences of three years and 11 years imprisonment for the offending in Dunedin.

Parsons told authorities he took the victim's clothing to "cross-dress", and became sexually aroused when he saw her naked. 

Since his release in 2006, Parsons has remained under an extended supervision order (ESO).

The Department of Corrections applied to the High Court in Christchurch to extend the ESO for another 10 years.

In a written decision released on Wednesday, Justice Nation said there was evidence Parsons had an ongoing "predilection or proclivity for behaviour which could result in serious sexual offending".

Parsons broke the conditions of his ESO in December 2015 when he detoured from his approved route to work and approached a 15-year-old girl in school uniform.

A second incident happened five months later when he gave the girl a note with his phone number and a request for her to purchase underwear and other female items for him.

He was convicted and imprisoned for two breaches of his ESO conditions in 2016.

Justice Nation said imposed a 10-year ESO on Parsons, along with 12 months' intensive monitoring.

"With Mr Parsons' high risk of further relevant sexual offending, there is a need for external controls to mitigate that risk and that close monitoring is required."
