Hyland Loses Appeal

Killer rapist Gerald Wayne Hyland yesterday lost his appeal against a seven-day jail sentence for dishonesty offences over a charity raffle.
Hyland, 51, was found guilty by a magistrate earlier this year of two counts of dishonestly acquiring a financial advantage. The charges related to $4 from a raffle Hyland ran for the Hobart-based Good Samaritan Society between October last year and January this year.
Hyland had appealed against the sentence, which was made cumulative with his 16-year jail term for the rape and manslaughter of Hobart woman Amanda Carter in 1980, on the grounds it was manifestly excessive.
Yesterday Justice Alan Blow said when viewed from the perspective that the case was about $4 the sentence might seem excessive.
But he said there were aspects of the case that made Hyland's conduct "very reprehensible".
"This scheme involved the deception of a number of other people, including the manager of the charity, the volunteers and the ticket purchasers," Justice Blow said.
"It involved the exploitation of individuals willing to be generous with their time and their money in order to help others."
