One of Victoria’s most notorious criminals – the man who brutally raped and murdered Jill Meagher in 2012 – has been found guilty of raping three other women after being released on parole for a string of other heinous crimes.
He was on parole?
Two of the victims, a Dutch backpacker and a St Kilda sex worker, were raped just months before Bayley raped and murdered Meagher. At the time he was out on parole after serving time for a string of sex worker rapes in 2000.
Bayley now has more than 20 convictions for rape.
Incredible. No one should ever get the chance for more than three convictions. He did at least 10 rapes over 12 years.
Now in NZ a third rape would get 20 years with no parole, or preventive detention.
