Kevin Bou-Antoun was released on parole in June 2021 after serving 18 years in prison for repeatedly raping a 16-year-old girl and trying to evade justice by having a contract killer kill her.
He was arrested in 2003 after he and another man repeatedly raped a 16-year-old girl in North Bondi.
While in prison, he tried to hire a hitman, but his cellmate alerted the police to his plot, and he was subsequently caught in a police sting operation.
After picking up the phone, Bou-Antoun said, “If she says anything to the police, I’ll kill her,” saying that killing might save her life rather than raping her, before dumping the body in a river. threatened.
After Bou-Antoun slapped the girl, he and another man repeatedly sexually assaulted her until she protested to stop.
The victim reported the attack to police, and Bou-Antoun and his accomplice were identified and arrested using his car registration and cell phone records.
They were also caught in a police wiretapping discussing the case.
While on remand in prison, Bou-Antoun gave his cellmate the girl’s details and tried to give it to the killer.
However, his cellmate gave the information to the police instead.
A hearing device planted in his cell discovered that he planned to pay $23,000, including a $3,000 down payment, to kill the girl.
“I just want to kill that b****, I want to kill her,” he said to his cellmate.
He was caught talking about a conspiracy with an undercover agent on the same wiretap, and he told him to “hit her in the stomach” and “make her feel a lot of pain.”
“Tell her it’s from Michael,” he said, referring to the fake name he gave the girl.
He was sentenced to 19 years in prison, 14 years without parole after pleading guilty to aggravated sexual assault and soliciting murder.
The state has applied to the Supreme Court of New South Wales for an order allowing him to continue to be monitored in fear that he may be offended again.
During a year-long legal process, the state applied for him to be subject to a three-year extended supervision order under the High-Risk Offenders Act.
Lawyer representing Bou-Antoun argued he should be subject to administrative order for only two years
But in an order issued by Justice Peter Girling on Friday, the Supreme Court gave the state a three-year supervision order that expires in July 2025.
Conditions include wearing electronic surveillance equipment and not possessing prohibited weapons until June of this year.
Judge Girling also rejected further orders proposed by the state, including that Bow Antoon provided information about his financial situation and had no relationship with anyone who consumed alcohol.
