Robert Hughes Parole Decision Stood Over

10 February 2022 

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.
