Hughes was jailed for a maximum of 10 years and nine months in 2014 after a jury found him guilty of 10 charges relating to sexual and indecent acts against four girls in the 1980s and 1990s.  

The actor, who has renounced his Australian citizenship and faces immediate deportation to his native UK upon release, was denied parole in 2020 and 2021.

It was reported in February 2022 that he will remain in prison for child sex offences after a decision on his parole was delayed.

Hughes has continually maintained his innocence, insisting he is the victim of false allegations.    

His non-parole period of six years finished in 2020 and his sentence expires on January 6, 2025.

Sarah revealed that she will be heading back to Australia later this year to attend his parole hearing, as she and his other victims fear he might be freed.

Brave: 'I want him to see that I'm actually not scared of him. I'm not nervous about doing it. I think I used to be, but I'm not these days,' Sarah said

‘We have never done it… The other girls and I are going to do it because we think they’re going to let him out this time,’ she said.  

‘I want him to see that I’m actually not scared of him. I’m not nervous about doing it. I think I used to be, but I’m not these days.’

Elsewhere in the interview, Sarah revealed she misses her home country of Australia and would love to move back home in future if she could ‘get work and afford to live in Sydney’.
