In mitigation he claimed he was deeply affected by a trial in 2006 when he was accused of four charges of rape against two young children.
He told the court, that although he was cleared of all charges, he turned to a life of drugs.
The judge sentenced Wall to 15 months imprisonment, which will run simultaneously to his current sentence.
The original sentencing judge also jailed Wall for the public's protection, deeming him to be dangerous.
Wall will only be released once he can prove he is no longer a danger to society.
