In this week’s video, I give an account of my experience with the court process. I think the general aura of mystery surrounding the legal system is a barrier that prevents victims of child sexual abuse from seeking justice. It begs the question, ‘what will actually happen if I report the abuse I suffered as a child?’ So, I thought it was important to share what happened in my case, to give you some idea of what to expect.
I’m keen for this one to reach as many people as possible – particularly those going through the court process themselves or who are thinking of making a report. I hope I can also provide some small comfort to survivors who did not get the just result from the process.
