3AW's Derryn Hinch held a NAME THEM AND SHAME THEM rally on the steps of Victoria's Parliment House yesterday where he publicly named a serial pedophile who has been released into the community after completing his parole period. Hinch named the pedophile and the crowd of around a 1000 repeated the mans name. A County Court judge ruled that, as is the case with other sex offenders, the man's name should be suppressed in the interests of his rehabilitation.

Hinch was jailed for 12 days in 1987 after revealing on his radio show the past convictions of a pedophile priest, Father Michael Glennon, despite knowing that Glennon was still to face court over other offences.
