An accused child rapist who failed to show up for his trial sparking a state-wide manhunt is currently receiving medical treatment in a Kalgoorlie hospital. Michael Robert Carroll was captured by police last week following a pursuit in Leonora after spending five days on the run. He was due to stand trial on August 17 accused of a string of child sex offences - relating to two children he allegedly abused from 2011 to 2013 - including three counts of sexual penetration of a child under 13 and two deprivation of liberty offences. Prosecutors didn’t oppose bail for alleged child rapist Michael Robert Carroll, WA attorney general reveals During a hearing today, WA’s District Court was told Mr Carroll, who appeared via audio link, was currently under the care of a surgical team at Kalgoorlie Hospital. His lawyer, Paul Catalano, said doctors had advised his client had abdominal issues and may require further treatment including possibly in Perth. “They have suggested he may need to be transferred to Fiona Stanley Hospital,” he added. As a result, Mr Catalano said his client would not be applying for bail as they awaited further advice about his medical condition. He asked the matter be adjourned to a later date. Judge Gary Massey agreed and remanded Mr Carroll into custody. He is expected to appear in court again on October 13.
