Manage episode 378088851 series 2882353
An independent victim advocate says there's a mismatch between the support victims and offenders get from the justice system.
Taxpayers have forked out $900,000 in legal aid for rapists Danny and Roberto Jaz.
The pair were convicted for 69 offences between them including rape and sexual violation, they were sentenced to 17 and 16 and half years in jail respectively.
Ruth Money says the money victims are given to turn up in court isn't enough.
"It's a ridiculous amount of money that doesn't cover your childcare, it doesn't cover your lost income, it doesn't cover the stress that you are put under."
