With a career spanning more than three decades, former homicide detective Gary Jubelin has put away a lot of bad people. But it's the ones he hasn't caught that still haunt him now.
In 2019, the former NSW Police detective was dumped from the investigation into William Tyrrell’s disappearance, shortly before being charged with allegedly making illegal recordings with the Tyrrell family’s elderly neighbour Paul Savage in 2017 and 2018 during his inquiries.
Earlier this year Jubelin was found guilty of these charges, convicted and fined $10,000. He has always maintained his innocence, insists the recordings were conducted lawfully and is appealing against the sentence.

On Sunday night, Jubelin sat down with Channel Nine's 60 Minutes to discuss his long career in the criminal justice system and his regrets.
After four years of investigating William Tyrrell's disappearance, Jubelin resigned from the case which remains unsolved.
Jubelin said what 'makes him tick' is more a fear of failure than the joy of success and admitted making the recordings was not worth the loss of his career.
In a shock fall from grace, Jubelin was convicted earlier this year for illegally using his mobile to record conversations with a suspect in the disappearance of toddler William Tyrrell. Jubelin was taken off the case and tragically, it remains unsolved. #60Mins pic.twitter.com/7SCk3sZjxX— 60 Minutes Australia (@60Mins) August 16, 2020
