'I'd rather go back to jail,' Ellis
Dangerous sex offender Andrew Clive Ellis, 28, told his defence lawyer he would rather go back to jail than abide by the conditions of a court-issued supervision order and GPS monitoring.
Ellis faced the Supreme Court in Brisbane yesterday afternoon for breaching his supervision order under the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003.
He is alleged to have cut off his GPS tracker and fled the transitional accommodation area known as the Wacol Precinct at 12.49am on Tuesday, in breach of his 24-hour curfew.
Officers from the High Risk Offenders monitoring unit were alerted Ellis was interferring with his GPS tracking device.
He then was alleged to have committed offences such as attacking an off-duty police officer in Brisbane's south before he was captured in Acacia Ridge.
Ellis appeared in the Richlands Magistrates Court yesterday to face charges of deprivation of liberty, assault occasioning bodily harm, stealing and two of entering premises to commit an offence. He was remanded in custody until February 16.
However, under the the Dangerous Prisoners (Sexual Offenders) Act 2003, Ellis also had to face the Supreme Court where lawyers for the Attorney-General, Paul Lucas, began action against him for a breach of his supervision order.
Duty lawyer Greg Lee yesterday claimed Ellis had been frustrated by the conditions of his supervision order and by GPS monitoring, despite the fact his client had lived only at the Wacol Precinct since January 12.
"He was frustrated," he said. "He alleges that police there didn't treat him well."
Barrister Bruce Mumford, for Mr Lucas, told the Supreme Court an accomplice could have been involved, which showed Ellis' escape was premeditated.
Ellis had been filmed on CCTV getting into a car outside the supervised housing area at Wacol, the court heard.
Ellis disputed the claim, telling the court he had escaped on foot. "I ran through the bush for about 30km."
Justice Martin Daubney said it did not matter if Ellis left in a car or on foot. He was bound by the Act to return him to custody unless Ellis could show it was unjust to do so. No submissions were made on Ellis's behalf.
Justice Daubney returned Ellis to custody until the breach application could be decided.

Sex predator escapes, but police have better things to tell the public
Convicted sex offender Andrew Clive Ellis was on the loose through Brisbane's streets for 16
hours on Tuesday after escaping transitional housing at Wacol.
It took Queensland Police more than 14 hours to notify the public of Ellis's escape, yet they
still had the time to use their Twitter account to publicise the Police Band's recent performance at
Australia Zoo and the style of motorcycles they rode 40 years ago.
When the QPS did finally alert the public that a potentially dangerous sex offender was roaming
loose, the story had already been on couriermail.com.au for five hours and had been read by thousands of people.
Queensland Corrective Services first informed the public of Ellis's escape at 9.30am - after being
contacted by The Courier-Mail.
Police Minister Neil Roberts denied there was any directive to delay the public alert because of the potential
"I refute, in the strongest possible way, any claim that the Government sought to delay the release of information
about offender Andrew Ellis. This claim is absolute rubbish," he said.
But he washed his hands of the lengthy delay.
"It's not a matter for a politician to decide when information goes out. That's a matter for police in consultation with
corrective services," he said.
Corrective Services Commissioner Marlene Morison said her department did not put out warnings to the community.
“We consult with police in terms of providing information around risk and around the specifics of an individual that’s
held within that contingency housing.”
A Corrective Services spokesman said he contacted the head of Queensland Police Media to ask if they would be issuing an
alert about Ellis.
"I was told it was `not on their agenda'," he said.
In an email to staff sent just before 4pm Wednesday, Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson acknowledged couriermail.com.au was
first to publish the story but said it was the responsibility of Queensland Corrective Services earlier on.

Subject: Apprehension of Andrew Clive Ellis
I extend my thanks and appreciation to all involved in the search and apprehension of Andrew Clive Ellis yesterday.
In all aspects a very good response and fine police work.
Most importantly was the timely removal of the potential further risk to the safety of the public.
With reference to today’s media criticism the reality is that the Department of Corrective Services, as lead agency,
put out a media release at 9:31am yesterday. The media were broadcasting this matter as a lead story throughout the day.
I note that the Courier Mail first posted a story online about Ellis at about 10:15am, and updated that story a number of
times during the day.
At that time, Ellis, was considered to have breached his supervision order.
That changed mid-afternoon, when we were able to identify Ellis as a suspect for the 6:30am assault, and thus a
potential danger to the public. At this time, the Queensland Police Service assumed lead agency status in releasing
Soon after that, I conducted a media conference at Beenleigh, and at 3:00pm, we put out a related Media release. This
was followed up at 4:00pmwith a media conference at Police Headquarters for the media who did not attend the Beenleigh
As you are probably aware, shortly after the press conference, Ellis was located and taken into custody without incident.
Again my thanks for a job well done.

Failures set sex predator Andrew Clive Ellis free
THE state's ability to protect the community from serious sex predators has come under fire after a convicted pedophile
yesterday hacked off his GPS tracker, escaped transitional housing and allegedly attacked a female jogger.
Police last night charged Andrew Clive Ellis with two counts of entering a premises and committing an indictable offence,
as well as one count each of contravention of a relevant order, deprivation of liberty, assault occasioning bodily harm
Shackled, wearing prison browns and slouching in his chair, Ellis appeared in Richlands Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.
A Supreme Court warrant means Ellis will be transferred to Brisbane this morning for a second court apearance.
The charges against him were adjourned to February 16 at 10am.
No application for bail was sought.
Premier Anna Bligh yesterday blamed the courts for the escape of Andrew Clive Ellis, but The Courier-Mail can
identify at least six crucial failures that led to him running loose on Brisbane streets for 16 hours yesterday:
On October 25 last year, Supreme Court Justice Ann Lyons orders Ellis be released into the community;
After a Crown appeal, Justice Richard Chesterman releases Ellis to transitional housing at Wacol;
Ellis cuts through the "tamper-proof" GPS tracking device fitted to his ankle. The alarm on the device alerted Corrective Services
of his escape, but the dog squad was not deployed until 11 minutes later;
Ellis walks free despite 24-hour curfew;
CCTV footage fails to capture his escape;
Police take 14 hours to alert public of Ellis posing a "real danger to public safety".
Despite a judge ruling Ellis's risk of reoffending was "too low to justify keeping him in jail", just five hours after his escape
Ellis allegedly attacked an off-duty policewoman jogging through parklands at Seventeen Miles Rocks, 7km away.
Sexual assault campaigner Hetty Johnston said the fact Ellis was able to escape so easily and immediately reoffended proved the only
place for repeat sex offenders was jail.
"He's exactly the sort of person who should never have been released in the first place. Already somebody has paid the price for the
court's decision to release this guy," Ms Johnston said.
Ellis was recaptured late yesterday in the Logan suburb where his mother and sister lived.
Yesterday, Police Minister Neil Roberts was forced to admit the "tamper-proof" tracking devices could be removed.
A Corrective Services' spokesman said they would be "examining the circumstances surrounding the incident to see what needs to change
or could be improved".
Deputy Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said Queensland Police would be "very interested in the outcome of any review" of the GPS trackers.
"That's a question that certainly will be looked into in relation to the security of the bracelets themselves," Mr Stewart said.
Ms Bligh, though, laid the blame for Ellis's escape squarely at the feet of the courts. "I'm very angry about this case," she said.
"The Queensland Government took every possible legal action to keep this person behind bars indefinitely. The courts decided to let
him go and frankly it is the wrong decision."
Attorney-General Paul Lucas said a court order to release him under strict supervision was "clearly the wrong decision".
The order, by Supreme Court Judge Anne Lyons, was due to be appealed in a hearing set down for February 20, said Mr Lucas.
Another application to keep Ellis in jail until that date was refused by the Court of Appeal's Justice Richard Chesterman, who ruled
supervision meant he would "not have the opportunity to offend against adolescent girls or young women".
Opposition police spokesman John-Paul Langbroek said the case "exposed Labor's lax sex offenders laws".
