5.2 ‘Better Get A Lawyer, Son’ - Justice Part 2

About This Episode

Child sexual abuse is a crime. What does criminal justice and punishment look like in the legal system? What is it like for survivors – or in this context, “victims” – to pursue criminal justice for sexual crimes against them? The second instalment of our two-part Justice episode shares direct personal experiences from two survivors: Adam and Jarad, with some insights from Professor Patrick O’Leary, Professor Rita Shackel, and Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald.

Featuring (in order of appearance):

Adam S, Professor Patrick O’Leary, Professor Rita Shackel, Jarad G, and Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald AM.
