Queensland’s most notorious paedophile has been released from prison. Douglas Jackway is a conflicted child rapist and notorious sex offender. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ Jackway will offend again but ‘when’. 

Our children are at the highest level of risk with the release of Jackway. Most Paedophiles befriend and groom families to gain access to their children. Jackway once abducted a boy who was riding his bicycle and drove him to a secluded place and raped him. 

He was assessed by a psychologist as a ‘high risk of reoffending in a sexual manner if released into the community with out a supervision order’. The risk is only reduced to a moderate risk with a supervision order in place. He will be placed on a 15 year supervision order because that is the time a psychiatrist deemed it will take for Jackway to become an ‘acceptable risk’ to the community without a supervision order. 

Jackway has committed 113 prison violations during the last 15 years including the assault of other prisoners. A prison officer said Jackway is the worst inmate he’s seen in his career.

In 1995, when he was 18, he was sentenced to eight years in jail for abducting a boy, stripping him, assaulting him, threatening him and committing sexual acts on him.

Jackway was released from jail in 2003 — the same year 13-year-old Daniel Morcombe went missing on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. He was a person of interest in the case but never convicted. 

In 2005, Jackway was sentenced for raping a girl in 1991, who was aged between nine and 10 years old.

He abused drugs in jail until March this year when drug supply became limited due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We the community object to the release of Douglas Jackway
