Jail term unchanged for predatory Scout master

Posted Fri Jan 21, 2005 3:18pm AEDT

A former Scout master described as one of Queensland’s worst convicted pedophiles has been sentenced in the District Court in Brisbane after pleading guilty to more offences.

But 62-year-old Maxwell John Parker will not serve any more jail time than his current 17-year term.

Parker was sentenced in 2000 after pleading guilty to 236 offences against 10 children committed over nearly 25 years.

Today he was back before the court on more than 30 charges committed against three boys as young as five while he was a scout master at Oxley.

Judge Michael Shanahan told Parker he had clearly acted in a predatory way and sentenced him to eight years’ jail, but ordered the term be served concurrently with the original sentence.

Parker will be eligible for parole in 2013.
