Summary

This paper presents a summary of findings from a report to the Criminology Research Council on the experiences of child complainants of sexual abuse in the criminal justice system in three Australian jurisdictions ... The paper suggests that legislative and procedural reform, and a more child-centred policy focus, are required in order to prevent damage being done to the child by the justice system. Such damage may contribute to non-reporting of sexual abuse by children, allowing abusers to act with impunity.
