Terrence Madden - Repeat Sex Offender - Wants to be Castrated

A registered sex offender who's racked up 23 convictions for sex offences pleaded guilty Friday to sexually abusing two Kitchener girls and making child pornography.

The Crown will try to have 54-year-old Terrence Madden declared a dangerous offender.

Madden admitted in Kitchener's Ontario Court to molesting the girls, who were 8 and 10 at the time of the offences.

“I am guilty of the two girls that I sexually abused,'' he said from the prisoner's box.

Through his lawyer, he said he is willing to undergo chemical castration to curb his sexual urges.
Madden was facing 18 sex-related charges dating from June, 2007. He pleaded guilty to five counts.
Details of some of the other counts will be presented at a dangerous offender hearing, if it proceeds.

Madden pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the two girls, two counts of making child pornography and disobeying a court order not to contact the girls' families.

Between July, 2007 and March 31, 2008, he photographed the girls and himself in pornographic poses, court heard. He offered them $10 to $20.

He downloaded the images on a computer. The images were discovered.

Madden first denied taking the photos when confronted, but when presented with the images, said it was a one-time event, which he didn't recall because he said he had brain cancer.
He later told police the girls were “hitting'' on him, but agreed he should have known better since he was the adult.

Suicide notes were found in his jail cell, in which he said, “I'm truly very, very sorry and ashamed of myself.''
Madden was staying in Kitchener at the time, but would return to his parents' home in Belleville every month. Under Christopher's Law, Ontario's sex offender registry, he was supposed to notify police in Belleville if he moved.

His lawyer argued that he wasn't really living permanently in Kitchener, so hadn't changed his address.
Madden's record starts in 1976 and includes convictions for sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, and committing an indecent act.
He'll return to court at a later date.
