Summary This is the story of Bri's journey through the Australian legal system; first as the daughter of a policeman, then as a law student & finally as a judge's associate in both metropolitan and regional Queensland - where justice can look very different, especially for women. Confronted by horrific criminal behaviour every day in court, Bri's eyes were opened to the inequity of the legal system & how complainants in sex crime investigations & trials struggle to receive justice, are re-victimised, & let down by the system with heartbreaking frequency. The injustice Bri witnessed, mourned & raged over every day finally forced her to confront her own personal history, one she'd vowed never to tell. And this is how, after years of struggle, she found herself on the other side of the courtroom, telling her story.
