Accused child rapist Michael Robert Carroll is today due to face the judge he skipped out on last week, sparking a Statewide manhunt. Mr Carroll was arrested by police without incident on the main drag of Leonora about 4.45pm on Friday. As revealed by the Advertiser, an arrest warrant had been issued by District Court Judge Wendy Gillan when he failed to show for a five-day trial last Monday. During the trial, Mr Carroll was set to defend 12 charges including three counts of sexual penetration of a child and two deprivation of liberty offences. Police have since charged him with breaching bail conditions. The 47-year-old’s lawyer Paul Catalano told the District Court of WA yesterday his client was being held in custody by police at the Kalgoorlie Health Campus. He is set to appear in front of Judge Gillan at 2.15pm at the District Court sitting in Perth. Police released a photo of Mr Carroll on Friday — calling for information about his whereabouts — before his arrest. The ex-partner of the accused said she was frustrated police had not released images identifying Mr Carroll earlier. On Friday, she condemned the leniency of his bail conditions. Attorney-General John Quigley told Parliament police had not opposed Mr Carroll being granted bail throughout his case. Mr Quigley said Mr Carroll was charged last year, had made multiple court appearances in the Albany Magistrate’s Court since then, and there was “no basis” for police to oppose bail.
