Dangerous prisoner released from jail with decade of orders

A ROCKHAMPTON rapist who has spent more than a decade behind bars will be released from jail on a strict supervision order.

Adrian Malcolm Dicinoski was sentenced to 12 years jail in 2004 for slashing a Yeppoon woman's throat. He was on bail for a rape charge at the time.

At Brisbane Supreme Court on Friday, lawyers for the Attorney-General asked the court to release him from jail under strict conditions that would last for 10 years.

Under dangerous prisoner laws, the Attorney-General can apply to the court to determine whether a prisoner should be kept behind bars for longer than their sentence or be released on a supervision order.

The court heard Dicinoski, who sat in the defendant's dock wearing glasses and a buttoned shirt, agreed to the supervision order.

The court also heard he would live with his mother, who is believed to live in the Rockhampton area.

Lawyer Margaret Maloney, representing the Attorney-General, said psychiatrists had examined Dicinoski and believed that he could be managed in the community if strict conditions were imposed on him.

Dicinoski's lawyer Soraya Ryan said a supervision order was more intense than and preferable to parole, particularly because under supervision he would undergo therapy to deal with risk factors that led to his offending.

Justice Ann Lyons said Dicinoski would be dangerous to the community if he was not on a supervision order when released from jail. She said his supervision order would expire in 2025.

Justice Lyons warned Dicinoski that if he breached the conditions he would be back before the court.

"It's a very serious thing to be subject to these orders but you must comply," she told him.
