The State Parole Authority has today stood over the parole decision for Robert Hughes.
Given the complexities and seriousness of this matter, the SPA has called for a comprehensive psychological assessment of Hughes’ risk of sexual re-offending and a further report from Community Corrections.
The SPA will hold a public review hearing on a date to be fixed before making a final decision on parole. Hughes is serving a sentence of 10 years and 9 months which expires 6 January 2025.
His six-year non-parole sentence expired 6 April 2020.
