    Prisoner Phillip John Smith is fighting for his freedom yet again - six years after famously fleeing to South America during temporary release

    Prisoner Phillip John Smith is fighting for his freedom yet again - six years after famously fleeing to South America during temporary release


    Smith has a parole hearing tomorrow in a fresh bid to be allowed out of prison.

    He's cost the taxpayer close to a million dollars taking court cases against the Department of Corrections, since being put behind bars in 1996.

    The murderer and child sex offender most famously claimed that he should be allowed to wear a wig - in a failed proceeding that cost over a hundred thousand dollars.

    Smith's hearing tomorrow marks his twelfth bid for freedom... upsetting the family of his victims.
