Douglas Winning refused High Court leave to appeal against corruption conviction

At about 1.00 am on Sunday 17 February 2019, police were patrolling in Rockhampton when they saw a car driving erratically and knocking over a street sign. They pulled the car over and found the driver was local solicitor Douglas “call me Doug” Winning.

Winning folded the cash in his right hand and extended his right arm out of the car, and towards the officers, keeping it there for some time.



Soon after, Winning still had the $300 cash in his hand and said “You wa-, you wanna lazy quid?”.

Winning pleaded guilty to drink driving. After a trial, Winning was convicted of official corruption.

Despite Morrison JA’s detailed and cogent judgment, Winning subsequently sought to appeal to the High Court.
