NSW Attorney General pushing to get serial rapist’s ankle bracelet back on
NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman is applying for convicted serial North Shore rapist Graham Kay’s electronic monitoring device to be put back on.
This comes after Kay, 66, failed to inform authorities he was meeting with an escort in April, breaking an extended supervision order (ESO) condition that requires he disclose ‘intimate relationships’.
Kay’s electronic monitoring tag was only removed in March, a month or so before the incident.
Kay was also accused of grabbing and trying to kiss a teenage girl at a western Sydney supermarket also in April while on conditional bail for breaking the ESO.
In a statement to the Ray Hadley Morning Show, Attorney General Speakman is appealing for Kay’s ankle bracelet be put back on:
“In view of changed circumstances relating to the offender, I requested fresh legal advice on the prospects of success in applying to vary the offender’s Extended Supervision Order (ESO).
Having considered that advice, I instructed the Crown Solicitor’s Office to apply in the Supreme Court for variations, including that the offender wear electronic monitoring equipment as directed by Corrective Services NSW.
While this and other matters relating to the offender remain before the court, any further comment from me would be inappropriate.”
“I think the whole of Sydney would be safer if that were to happen,” says Ray.
The notorious rapist served 18 years for sexually assaulting a number of women at knifepoint and was released on parole in 2015, after which he was placed on ESO and remained a high-risk sex offender.
