The ABC has the unhappy tale of Alfred Chatfield this day sentenced to five and a half years in prison for rape at knifepoint in Dickson.
The ACT Supreme Court heard Chatfield was intoxicated and could not remember the attack.
The man has an extensive criminal history including three rape convictions in Victoria and has spent much of his life in jail.
In sentencing Justice Hilary Penfold said Chatfield is unlikely to stop abusing drugs and alcohol and is at risk of re-offending.
He will be eligible for parole in 2013, after his sentence was backdated to include the time already spent in custody.
Hands up who wants to be his next victim in 2013?
