Psychiatrists to determine Rockhampton rapist's release

TWO psychiatrists will assess whether a Rockhampton rapist who is nearing the end of his sentence should be kept in detention or be released on strict conditions.

Under dangerous prisoner laws, the Attorney-General can impose strict conditions on dangerous offenders' supervision or apply to the Supreme Court to extend their detention.

In 2004, Adrian Malcolm Dicinoski was sentenced to 12 years jail for slashing a Yeppoon woman's throat while he was on bail for a rape offence.

He had previously been convicted of raping a Longreach woman and attacked the Yeppoon woman in October 2003 after meeting her earlier in a pub. He cut an 8-10cm hole in the woman's throat.

A judge has ordered two psychiatrists to examine Dicinoski and prepare independent reports.

A hearing will be held in September on the matter.
