An Aurukun man who admitted to sexually attacking two tourists in a Cairns park has been sentenced to 11 years behind bars.
20-year-old Liam Amos Richard Kerindun pleaded guilty to thirteen charges over the assaults in 2016. 
Today's Cairns Post reports both attacks happened on the same night and just days after he was released from prison on parole.
The court heard the first victim was attacked for about two hours; fortunately a passer-by heard the second woman's screams for help and scared off the attacker.
