Criminal histories of husband and wife managers exposed

The shambolic Lagulalya Aboriginal Corporation on Bickerton Island has been under the management of a convicted rapist who once escaped maximum security prison with a murderer.
LAC was seized by administrators Meertens Chartered Accountants this month because the corporation was insolvent.
A string of troubles were revealed, including superannuation not being paid, cash in hand figures out by $82,461 and stocktake figures out by more than $330,000.
Manager Paul Pini was removed by administrators.
It has now emerged Pini and his wife Katrina Lucas, who helped managed the corporation, have serious criminal histories.
In 1985, Pini and Allan Larsen, a convicted murderer, escaped from the maximum security section of Woodford jail and eluded police for six days.
Pini had been sentenced to a total of 21 years jail in 1981 for rapes in Queensland.
They were captured near Nerang and sent back to prison, but Pini was still able to shorten his sentence and he was released in 1993.
The NT News contacted Pini and asked about the LAC accounts, but he said he was not allowed to comment. When asked about his colourful past, he replied, "that's history.''
Lucas recorded her first conviction for stealing $32,000 from a Bundaberg sports club back in the early 1990s.
More recently, she was convicted of fraudulently obtaining almost $115,000 in GST reimbursements by falsifying her monthly returns for the couple's cleaning business between 2002 and 2004.
Lucas also declined to comment.
The NT News is not suggesting Pini or Lucas have been involved in criminal activity while managing LAC and police are not investigating.
A source from the island confirmed superannuation payments had not gone into some employees' accounts for nearly a year, despite pay slips showing they had.
The corporation has owned the Milyakburra store on Bickerton Island, which is relied upon by 170 people for essential items, since 2012.
That same year, it also took on the local women's centre and shire services such as waste collection.
