Ray Hadley slams sentencing period for convicted paedophile
A convicted paedophile has been jailed for at least two and half years for multiple child sex offences.
A jury found Neil Duncan guilty of eight counts relating to incidents involving three girls in 2019.
The 67-year-old’s sentencing was delayed in August so he could undergo surgery for prostate cancer and tests for possible bowel cancer.
Ray Hadley says Judge Robyn Tupman made an ‘incredulous’ decision that went nowhere near far enough.
“The Attorney General Mark Speakman and the DPP must make an urgent appeal over the totally inadequate sentence of this grub Neil Duncan.
“I hope his two and a half years in jail is as difficult and uncomfortable as it can be.
Ray says his concern is for the victims who “are totally under-represented in this judgement.”

New South Wales Attorney-General Mark Speakman told Ray Hadley he has instructed the DPP to review the judgement.
“When someone has offended against children, as young as 10 years old in this case, there is understandably community concern when only two and a half years is given.
“There is a lifelong impact this type of offending can have, which is why I have asked for the adequacy of this sentence to be reviewed.”
