Pilot halves court time for sexual violence cases

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 09:07:00 +1300

A pilot programme to speed up justice for victims of sexual violence has found case times have been halved, in just one year of the two year programme.

Instead of waiting for legislative change, the judges looked at ways they could improve the justice system for victims of sexual violence, within the existing system. The Chief District Court Judge, is Jan-Marie Doogue.
