A man has been sentenced to three years probation for attempting to rape a 13-year-old boy in Mackay in north Queensland.

In May this year, Marcel Schauer attempted to rape the boy outside a shopping centre in Andergrove.

He pleaded guilty to the charge in the District Court in Mackay on Friday, but Judge Julie Dick adjourned sentencing until today.

In handing down her verdict, she told the court it had not been easy to sentence Schauer because the crime was serious, but because of his ‘borderline intelligence’ Schauer did not understand what he had done.

She agreed with doctors’ reports that jailing Schauer would not help to rehabilitate him and sentenced him to three years parole, which is the maximum sentence.

She told the court she had done what she could to protect the community.
