A sex offender is back in prison serving more of a 12-year term after being convicted of secretly filming an 18-year-old woman in the shower and on the toilet.

John Raymond Sisson, 47, was released from prison after serving at least his minimum non-parole term of six years for the sexual violation of a 12-year-old girl in 2005.

While on parole this year he filmed the woman.

Defence counsel Tom Stevens said said Sisson was having difficulty coping with his parole.

Judge David Holderness said the woman noticed the camera on the bathroom cabinet.

Sisson deleted the recordings but the police were able to recover them.

Judge Holderness said the explanation Sisson gave for the filming was difficult to accept.

Because of the repeated conduct and lack of remorse, he was adding another 12 months to Sisson's current prison sentence.
