QLD Justice System Fails Peta Butler

Peta Butler was just 16 years old when her Mother Therese facilitated her rape by her boyfriend Thommo.
Therese took Peta on a road trip to Toowoomba. Took her to a motel and gave her four Vodka Cruisers to drink before handing her over to Thommo to rape and have unprotected sex with her.
Peta didn’t think anyone would believe her and after starting her own family Peta built up the courage to report the matter to Police.
Police investigated her complaint and although Thommo has never been found to date Peta’s mother was charged with the offence.
Peta now fears for her life and that of her children and partner after her Mother yelled to her partner “take out my f****ing daughter”
A Current Affair ran the story in March 2018 and asked for public help to locate Thommo. A sketch of Thommo was provided with several possible email addresses. Let’s hope he is found soon as we do not want to see a repeat of this case.
We now need your help. As October fast approaches and Therese is due for release when need to encourage the Attorney General to appeal this case and extend the sentence. Four years paroled after 12 months is inadequate for such an offence.
Australian children who are victims of pain, torture, neglect, malnutrition, emotionally or sexually abused or subject to violence for several minutes, hours or days should automatically have their abuser sentenced to Murder Charges. These charges should be automatic when there is sufficient evidence to prosecute.
No child should be left feeling their life was worthless. We need justice for every child.
Peta needs our help to protect her and her children from the one person who should have loved and protected her for eternity.
By signing this petition we are urging the Attorney General to appeal this case as a matter of urgency and set a precedent to protect our children. This Mother has not been sentenced accordingly for the crime she allowed to take place on her own child.
Every victim and their family should be given right of review when justice has not been adequate.
