A convicted paedophile recently released on parole pleaded guilty in the Launceston Magistrates Court to failing to comply with the terms of the Community Protection Offender Reporting Act.
Reginald Robert Young, 28, pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to comply in December.
Young was released on parole on December 8.
In 2017 Young received a four-year jail term after pleading guilty to two counts of sexual penetration of a young person under the age of 17 years.
He met the 13 and 14-year-old girls on a social media website.
He was also sentenced in 2012 for two counts of sexual intercourse with a young person, aggravated sexual assault, indecent assault and being in the possession of child exploitation material.
"The defendant's history of offending discloses that he poses a considerable risk of offending against underage girls," he said
He said Young had a very high level of criminal culpability and emphasised the need for a sentence that gave priority to the protection of the public and punishment.
The Parole Board released Young on December 8 with conditions that he has no contact with children, no access to the Internet and no contact with victims of the offending.
"There is concern that the applicant represents at a high risk of reoffending. However, when seen in the context of the presence of his autistic traits the engagement by him in appropriate personality and offence based psychological treatment may be significant in shifting his fixed traits thereby reducing his risk of reoffending," Parole Board decision said.

However, soon after being released Young breached the order on December 8.
Under the order he was required to report any changes to his personal details within seven days of any changes including internet, instant messaging, chat room user names or any other user names or identity used or intended to be used.
On December 16, Young contravened the order by failing to report to the Registrar or an authorised person his use of Snapchat and user names "Dude" and "CDT Awesome".
Young also pleaded guilty to contravening the order by failing to report the use of his mobile phone and number.
Magistrate Ken Stanton remanded Young in custody for sentence on April 15 at 11.30am.
