- Sex offender Robert Fardon released from Brisbane jail
Serial rapist Robert John Fardon has just been released from prison in Brisbane.
Fardon is being taken to supervised accommodation, after a court today rejected a bid by State Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie to keep him behind bars indefinitely.
This afternoon, Mr Bleijie withdrew a last-minute application to prevent Fardon's release.
Earlier today, the Court of Appeal declared that sections of a new Act granting the Attorney-General power over sex offenders were invalid.
