    Statement from Attorney General Paul Lucas re Tracey Wigginton

    I am seeking Crown Law advice on this matter.

    Ordinarily, someone would receive about 16 years for murder.

    This person has served 21 years for this horrendous crime.

    The decision about parole was made by the independent Parole Board and independent parole boards have existed in Queensland for decades under both sides of politics.

    People seem to forget the LNP style was regular escapes from maximum security prisons which hasn’t happened under Labor.
