Paul Steven Haigh to Undergo Psychiatric Assessmenton October 13, 2011 in Psychology, Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Paul Steven Haigh killed seven people, including a child, and was sentenced to six life sentences without parole. He now says that he wants, and deserves, parole.
A hearing was held in the Victoria, Australia Supreme Court to address the matter.
Grace Morgan, Haigh’s lawyer, told the court that a psychiatrist is going to meet with Haigh in December to assess his fitness for release.
Haigh appeared in court via teleconference. He said:
Jail has served its purpose in allowing me to rehabilitate so it is a needless cruelty to keep me.
I once belonged there because I was once a monster but having become something less, then I deserve to be let out of the cage.
Haigh has been imprisoned for more than thirty years. The matter will return to court on February 1, 2012.
