Psychiatrists to give evidence at Wacol child rapist case

TWO psychiatrists will give evidence on whether a convicted child rapist, who was caught downloading child pornography in an internet cafe, should have stricter conditions imposed on him.

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

Wacol man Graeme Paul Hancock was given a two-year suspended sentence in 2013 for possessing explicit child pornography.

After someone saw him downloading child pornography onto a USB device in an internet cafe, police searched his Wacol home and found the device had 100 images and four exploitation videos.

He has served jail time for child sex charges, including rape.

In November, the court will hear whether Hancock needs strict conditions imposed on him.

A judge has ordered two psychiatrists give evidence in his case.
