Court Hearings (Against Bouncers)


Bouncer jailed for raping tourist

A bouncer who held captive and repeatedly raped a female tourist at the hotel where he worked has been jailed for six and a half years.

Darryl Dalley was found guilty in the Cairns District Court of three counts of rape and one each of common assault and deprivation of liberty over the attack on the 21-year-old Canadian traveller, which took place in June last year during an annual music festival in the outback town of Croydon, in the state's far north.

Dalley, of Mount Isa, is the second licensed security guard in a week to be jailed for violent attacks on the public, after a Mackay-based bouncer pleaded guilty on October 2 to causing grievous bodily harm to a man outside a nightclub last year.

In that case, the victim was left with severe facial injuries when he was bashed by off-duty security guard Misivila Apu'Ula in an alley near the Doors Nightclub in Mackay.

Apu'Ula will was sentenced earlier this month to two and a half years' jail but will be eligible for parole in March next year.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Kerry Shine, said both men had been stripped of their security credentials following their convictions. A third license cancellation was also issued following a similar incident on the Gold Coast.

Mr Shine said the State Government had committed $2 million to establish a specialist taskforce charged with cleaning up the security industry and ridding it of the thug element.

"Most security providers are very professional and play an important role in maintaining the peace in sometimes challenging circumstances," Mr Shine said.

"But we will not hesitate to crack down on those who think their security licence puts them above the law."

He said tighter controls legislated in July were aimed at ensuring "only appropriate and competent professionals" qualified as bouncers.
