Gold Coast man jailed over repeated rape of 2yo girl

A convicted child sex offender from the Gold Coast has been jailed over the repeated rape of his former girlfriend’s two-year-old daughter.

Jason Mizner was sentenced to 19 years behind bars in Brisbane’s District Court on Friday, after pleading guilty to more than 60 child sex offences relating to the toddler from the early 2000s.

The 44-year-old was due to be sentenced over the horrific acts earlier this week, however it was adjourned after Justice Leanne Clare viewed a video tape of one of the assaults.

“I think it would be best to put some distance between the viewing of that tape and the delivery of the judgment so that it does not overwhelm the sentence,” she said.

During sentencing on Friday, Judge Clare described Mizner’s offences as “a different kind of evil”.

“You are a predator,” she said.

Mizner, who has already served 11 years in a Thailand jail for similar offences, will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
