Nice story on Terry Webb LC.
Now women know wot men face every day. Having uncorroborated evidence in criminal trials is a recipe for miscarriages of justice.

The barrister blogger story is horrific and should be required reading for all lawyers and magistrates.

I have been sentenced to 16 years in prison, on the word of a woman alone, contrary to the Magna Carta. Truly horrific.
