LNP calls on Yvette D'Ath to appeal soft sentence handed down to sex attack offender


NOTE: This article is older than 12 months

LNP Shadow Attorney-General David Janetzki has urgently written to the Palaszczuk Labor Government to lodge an appeal against a sex offender who was spared jail time.

Nicholas Stanton Battle Slaughter sexually violated a 15 year old boy in the toilets of a major Brisbane shopping centre, in December 2017.

He pleaded guilty to multiple charges including indecent dealing of a child under 16, making and possessing child exploitation material and using a carriage service to solicit child pornography.

Slaughter was placed on a good behaviour bond and received an 18 month jail sentence, wholly suspended.

Mr Janetzki has slammed the sentence and said it doesn't meet community expectations.

"This was a sickening sex attack on a 15 year old boy in the public toilets of a major shopping centre," Mr Janetzki said.

"We can't have these perverted sex pests freely walking the streets and preying on our kids.

"I've been in contact with the family of the victim and they are deeply distressed with what happened to their son.

"But their grief has been made worse, knowing the perpetrator walked free.

"Queenslanders have a right to be asking what more a person has to do to get locked up.

"This sick individual filmed the attack and shared it with friends on social media.

"He was found to have 5000 images on his phone, including a man raping a toddler.

"Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath has no choice but to appeal.

"Only the LNP is tough on crime, puts the rights of the victims first and is committed to keeping our kids safe.

"The Palaszczuk Labor Government must put politics aside and back the LNP's call to appeal this sentence."
