Colin Jack Mitchell is unlikely ever to leave prison again, after being sentenced to preventive detention over two vicious attacks on women. Mitchell abducted a woman after last year's Pride Parade and assaulted her at a west Auckland quarry. He was also convicted of a 1992 rape and has been jailed previously for rape.
