Bob Hewitt parole
Olivia Jasriel says they were informed on Thursday that Hewitt will be released n the 23 September 2019.

The Department of Correctional Services says the decision to grant convicted rapist and former tennis champ Bob Hewitt parole has not been taken yet.

The former tennis champion was sentenced to six years in prison in 2015 for the rape and sexual assault of three women in the 1980s and 1990s.

According to the law, Hewitt is eligible for a parole hearing as he has served more than half of his sentence.

Ray White speaks to one of his, victims Olivia Jasriel, who says she was informed yesterday that Hewitt will be getting parole.

We found out yesterday that the parole board sat and had a meeting on the 23rd August and they took a decision to release him on parole and that is without notifying us.

Jasriel says she does not know why they were not consulted.

I'm not so angry that he is getting parole, I am angry that my rights were not taken into account whereas his have been taken into account from day dot.

He has been protected and looked after. We have never been consulted, looked after and nothing about us has been taken into consideration.
