Not good news unfortunately.
The Magistrate has ruled that even though he believes the rings belong to Alanna, the police didn’t prove that Brett knew that they were stolen when he gave them to me.
So he manages to get off, yet again, on a technicality.
Definitely not the result we were hoping for, but we are trying to look at the positive here, which is that the national coverage that has come from us speaking out against Brett will make it extremely hard for him to find victims in future. When I started dating him, there was nothing online about him, and now there is mountains of stuff. The truth always comes out, and with the amount of stuff that is now online, it will be harder than ever for him to get away with everything he has gotten away for far too long.
All we can hope for is that karma works it’s magic soon.
