Court to decide if sex offender can be released from jail

A QUEENSLAND sex offender will have his case reviewed next month under the state's dangerous prisoner laws.

The Attorney-General's office has asked the supreme court to review Geoffrey Doolan's case.

Under Queensland's dangerous prisoner laws, the Attorney-General can apply to the court to extend a prisoner's detention or allow them to be released from jail on strict supervision.

Doolan was granted release from jail with strict supervision last year and a hearing will be held next month to review his case.

Doolan grabbed and kissed a Rockhampton woman at an ATM in 2005 and a Mackay teenage girl in 2006.

A hearing will be held on March 29 when evidence will be heard on his case. - APN NEWSDESK
