Robert Richter QC slams new state government prison plan

Neil Mitchell

Plans to house serious violent offenders within a prison after they’ve served their prison terms has been deemed ‘wicked’, ‘stupid’ and ‘horrible’ by a leading QC.

The state government has revealed plans to build the ten-bed facility within a prison and change legislation so violent offenders can be subjected to similar supervision orders as serious sex offenders.

Former President of the Council for Civil Liberties Robert Richter QC has told 3AW’s Neil Mitchell it’s a step too far.

‘It’s wicked, it’s stupid, it’s horrible,’ Mr Richter said on 3AW Mornings.

‘…And it’s another step in converting our society into a society of prisoners.’
