Justice for Stephanie Scott


This is a petition to the NSW Department of Public Prosecutions to appeal the pathetic 15 month sentence handed down to Marcus Stanford for being an accessory after the fact of Steph's murder by his brother Vincent.

I was a part of the search party for Stephanie Scott - before we found out that she’d been raped and murdered at the school where she worked. The news rocked our community. Now I’ve just heard that the man who covered up her murder will be let out 15 days - it makes me sick.

Steph was my daughter's teacher and friend - the memories of the desperate search for her are etched in my mind.

It’s a horrendous blow to us all that this man who helped Stephanie’s killer cover up her murder has only been sentenced to 15 months in prison. He even took her wedding rings and jewellery to a pawn shop to cash in on her death. This man will be out of prison in just over two weeks.

The injustice is shocking. I cannot imagine how Stephanie’s family are feeling knowing that someone who played such a key role in their daughter’s death is getting off so lightly.

His sentence is pathetic - please sign & share my petition for the Department of Public Prosecutions to appeal this sentence!

  • Attorney General of New South Wales
    Gabrielle Upton MP
  • The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions NSW
    NSW Director of Public Prosecutions
