Push to parole terminally ill Indigenous man jailed for 15 months for driving offences

Push to parole terminally ill Indigenous man jailed for 15 months for driving offences
- Nigel Scullion has written to the Queensland premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, in support of the parole application of a terminally ill Indigenous man jailed for 15 months for driving offences.
Marshall Wallace, 48, suffers from terminal liver cancer and moved from a remote community in the Northern Territory to Mt Isa in Queensland to access chemotherapy.
He was arrested several times for driving unlicensed and received a 15-month jail term last week, despite his doctor providing a letter to the court saying he had a life expectancy of between six and nine months.
