NSW Premier: my 9 year old daughter was raped and killed – don't allow her murderer insulting new privileges

My name is Christine Simpson. My 9 year old daughter Ebony was walking home from her school bus when a cowardly paedophile named Andrew Garforth abducted, raped, bound her arms and legs and threw her into a dam.

The Supreme Court sentenced this monster to life in prison. That was 23 years ago – but now it's come to my attention that his status has been 'downgraded' to a medium security prisoner, getting new privileges like doing woodwork courses and get a job in prison.

Few people understand the pain of losing a child especially not in the circumstances of how we lost Ebony. As a parent, you NEVER get over it. The only solace we take is hoping that Andrew Garforth is living in a worse hell than the one he created for us. The thought that he can do courses or get a job is offensive to us as well as to the millions of Australians who expect more from our justice system.

Please sign my petition to Premier Mike Baird. He has the power to intervene and reverse this decision – to give my family some peace and ensure the justice system doesn't allow rapist, killers like Andrew Garforth insulting new privileges.

Yours faithfully
Christine Simpson
