Free after 8 months for sex abuse of 12 year old girl - review disgusting sentences

This petition had 4,040 supporters


I’ll never forget the moment she told me. My innocent 12 year old girl was sexually abused by the son of my ex-partner. This monster was convicted, but given immediate bail and only a disgusting 8 month sentence for the abuse.

The trauma, abuse we suffered -- yet the QLD justice system thinks 'sexual abuse of a minor' deserves a perpetrator walking out of jail free 'time served'.

We were forced to move to Perth to escape him - left completely abandoned by Queensland’s justice system. It’s destroyed our family.

I am fed up of reading the headlines about child abuse in Queensland. In recent news, a repeat offender is now free after 6 months for abuse of an 8 year old. Our state’s weak, pathetic child abuse sentences are letting child sex offenders off the hook. Girls like my daughter are left forever suffering indescribable injustice.

I always thought the law was there to protect vulnerable kids. It’s traumatising to find out that the justice system is failing sexually abused kids just because your own child is a victim.

There’s an election coming up soon - this is our moment to finally make politicians listen to us. Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk must stop letting child sex offenders off with weak sentences - urgently review the prosecution of Queensland’s child sex abuse cases.
