Sarah Paino killer BACK behind bars after breaching parole
Written by Josh Agnew on August 23, 2019
The Hobart teenager convicted of manslaughter over the 2016 death of pregnant Hobart mother Sarah Paino is now back behind bars, just weeks after being granted parole.
The teenager, who was 15 years old at the time, pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter, and was sentenced as an adult to 5 years imprisonment with a non parole period of 2.5 years in August of 2016 after he and three younger friends stole a Toyota vehicle and went on a deadly joy ride across Hobart in January of 2016, travelling at a minimum speed of 110km/h with no headlights.
The now 19 year old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, became eligible for consideration of parole on July 21 2018, but was refused release at his first appearance because he needed to “engage more in addressing his offending behaviour and addictions”. He was released from jail on August 6 this year.
