Kevin John Jones faces seven years of isolation

By johnboy 30 April 2009 35

The Canberra Times reports that the prison rapist Kevin John Jones, 50, has been sentenced to another seven years of imprisonment after being convicted of raping his young cellmate in the Belconnen Remand Centre.

    The 50-year-old Jones, who has spent nearly a quarter of his life behind bars, was diagnosed in a pre-sentence psychological report with chronic alcoholism, a major depressive disorder and an antisocial personality disorder.

    Justice Malcolm Gray said yesterday that Jones’s criminal career had begun when he was 14 and included convictions for assault, inflicting grievous bodily harm, assault with a weapon and numerous drink-driving offences.

Apparently keeping him in isolation is going to test the resources of the Alexander Maconochie Center (the new prison in Hume).

One has to wonder if we wouldn’t be better off exporting hard cases like this one?

What’s Your opinion?

If he likes to romp so much, we could implant some breasts into him then send him to Thai land to be a lovely Thai-Boy. In a Thai prison of course.

Then everyone’s happy.

I found the vegemite thing intriguing. You can brew alcyhol from fruit juice with a bit of yeast, although adding sugar results in better alcyhol, and orange juice is one that people don’t bother with as the citric acid mucks things up. I wonder how the crims do it? Vegemite has yeast, I guess, but lots of salt, too. I guess they could add plenty of sugar.

Sounds horrible though.

and absolute alcohol has a nasty side effect – if you get the mix wrong.

vg the idea of rehabilitation is to try to turn people around a bit before they get this bad.

send this guy to goulburn.

I don’t see the problem. Plenty of people on this site like to complain about light sentencing from our judiciary. This might balance things out. Our judges only send murderers to jail for 6 months instead of 20 years but they have to share a cell with this guy.

People like this should be kept with other people like that. As ronster points out, there’s some nice people at Goulburn. What about the Anita Cobby people, Ivan Milat… why can’t they have a facility for vicious, unpleasant, violent people only?

They have, is called Supermax at Goulburn

Chemical castration is okay – so long as the dangly bits are dipped into the hydrochloric acid deeply enough.

…vegimite saches in orange juice…

How long does that take to produce a useful amount of ethanol? ewwww…

I would think that with exchange rates the way they are, you could house him in a Russian prison for seven years cheap, even considering the cost of airfares.

Or do a Carny, and just banish him from town…

Strap some Class A drugs to him, and give him a one way ticket to Bali.

Public hanging in the city.
It will give the kiddies something to do on the weekend.

chemical castration is no good, they have to keep taking the chemicals for it to keep working. I’d chip in for a rubber ring for this champion.

nah, the red hot iron removal would be far more fun. rings can be broken, but a red hot marking iron never fails…

failing that, a rusting marking knife would have an equally satisfying effect…

C’mon, surely someone out there is going to weigh into this with the good old “rehabilitation is better/what a terrible upbringing/its not his fault”. Surely?

Sad thing is his punishment for raping someone in what essentially is a prison is to give him more time in prison. Interesting to see what ‘isolation’ means in our human rights compliant prison.

Anyone want to run a book on how long it takes this guy to do the same thing again?

Exported into the sun with a catapult.

Love it, best idea I’ve heard all day!

Saudi Arabia would be an excellent export market for the likes of this subhuman.
