Fardon to be released

4BC Mornings: Notorious serial rapist Robert John Fardon will be released from jail on Thursday after a judge ruled any risks to the community could be overcome.

Fardon will be released under a strict supervision order, Supreme Court Justice Debra Mullins ruled Wednesday.

Listen: Bravehearts CEO, Hetty Johnson, joins Greg Cary from outside the Supreme Court.

In 2003, Fardon became the first person detained indefinitely under Queensland's Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act.

He will be released tomorrow afternoon under 34 conditions, including having to undergo electronic monitoring and abide by a curfew, and abstain from drugs and alcohol.

Fardon is also required to advise Corrective Services officers about his planned activities on a weekly basis, and must also tell them if he enters any relationship.

He's prohibited from making contact with any of his victims, as well as an intellectually disabled woman who he was convicted of raping but later acquitted.

Part of his release conditions also prohibit him from unsupervised contact with children, people with mental disabilities or those who suffer from substance abuse.

The 64-year-old last week told the court he was a changed man after undergoing intensive therapy.

Blog comments Your Say

  • This man is pure evil. Make no mistake people, history would tell us that he will commit further offences. At what point is enough,enough. The public is sick and tired of looney left wing magistrates unleashing grubs like this on the community. What happens when he strikes again?, will the magistrate take responsibility for her actions?. I think not, these people are so far removed from reality that it's frightening. I realise that judges have a difficult job sometimes, but seriously, how hard is it to look at his record and say that the community has suffered enough at the hands of this grub. Maybe judges should start to be made personally accountable for the decisions they make just like the police, correctional officers, Paramedics ect.
