A depraved baby rapist who filmed himself repeatedly sexually assaulting a two-year-old girl has won a preliminary lawsuit over violations of his human rights by being placed in jail with a cellmate.
Jason Daron Mizner – whose heinous pedophile crimes in two countries consisted of muzzled a toddler to stop him from crying – has previously complained that his jail time was too long.
Now the former gold coast Yoga teacher who is in his late 40s has won a sabbatical Queensland The Civil and Administrative Court (QCAT) orders that he will not be held in a shared cell until his discrimination case is decided courier mail reported.
After serving 11 years in a Thai prison for raping and videotaping infants before being deported to Australia, Mizner claims he was discriminated against by Queensland Corrective Services for being put in a two-man cell .
Other notorious inmates at Wolston Correctional Center in Wacol, West Brisbane include pedophile killer of Brisbane schoolboy Daniel Morcombe, Brett Peter Cowan, and wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay.
Mizner says he is affected by disorders such as post-traumatic stress from his time in a Thai prison where he served 11 years for raping a baby.
He says he also has autism, an acquired brain injury, and foot or leg injuries that make it difficult for him to share a cell with another inmate.
And it looks like QCAT will grant him his wish permanently, because sharing with another cellmate is unbearable for someone suffering from “persistent emotional overarousal.”

He is serving 19 years in Queensland for 65 child molestation offenses involving a two-year-old girl whom he repeatedly raped over a three-month period in the early 2000s.
His pathetic criminal record included more than 30 counts of rape and video footage of the assaults.
Mizner was caught on vacation in Thailand, where he had befriended a Thai woman whose young daughter he had also sexually assaulted.
Back in the Gold Coast, the mother of a two-year-old girl had found a bag of his belongings at home, containing handwritten notes with the children’s names, details of how they could be exploited and videos of his horrific abuse.
In addition to photos and names of children, the bag also contained addresses of single mothers and plans for a child exploitation ring.
Mizner was convicted in Thailand of shocking child sex offenses and served 11 years of a 35-year sentence before being deported to Australia upon his release.
Charged with the Gold Coast crimes, he was sentenced in two countries in 2018 to a total of 26 years of continuous imprisonment.
During the sentencing hearing, Judge Leanne Clare said she had trouble coping with the disturbing footage of Mizner’s crimes, despite her 30-year experience dealing with extreme child abuse cases.

“I only saw part of it and it was a struggle to get the vision of your insult out of my mind,” Justice Clare said.
“I can’t imagine how awful it is for the[girl’s]mother.”
Judge Clare, who was so traumatized by the graphic footage that she had to delay sentencing, said Mizner had shown no remorse for his heinous crimes.
A year later, Mizner claimed in the Queensland Court of Appeal that his prison time – meaning he is not eligible for parole until 2031 – did not adequately reflect the time he has spent in prison abroad.
He lost his calling.
Mizner is now being held at Wolston Correctional Center as his original claim under the Anti-Discrimination Act is being examined by QCAT.
The tribunal heard a prison psychiatrist supported Mizner’s request not to share a cell due to “persistent emotional over-arousal, over-vigilance and intrusive memories” consistent with PTSD.
Jason Mizer, now in his late 40s, filmed himself raping a two-year-old girl, muzzled to stop her screaming, but now claims his rights are being undermined because he has to share a cell while he is in prison “persistently emotionally over-aroused”.
Mizner claimed that being placed in a shared cell for more than a few weeks “would affect his mental health and lead to a mental breakdown,” QCAT heard.
Mizner claims Corrective Services failed to “take his human rights into account when making decisions” and was told by a prison psychologist that he did not meet the requirements for the “Do Not Double Up” list.
Corrective Services argue that Mizner is suitable for communal accommodation and QCAT heard that solitary cells are the exception at overcrowded Wolston Prison, with inmates only being placed in a cell alone in extreme circumstances.
QCAT member Ann Fitzpatrick noted that Mizner had demonstrated “a reasonable probability of success on the complaint” and that the risk of harm to his mental health must outweigh the prison’s operational problems.
“All in all, given the limited evidence available, I am not satisfied that the applicant would not suffer harm if placed in a shared cell,” she said in a published decision.
She ordered that he not be placed in a double occupancy cell before his discrimination complaint was dealt with.
