Sarah's brave act that forever stopped a child predator
Sarah spent decades explaining her self-destructive behaviour to people as a consequence of one terrible year of bullying in primary school.
Her abuser wasn't another child, but her principal, an elderly Catholic nun.
But while Sarah tried to overcome the trauma of that experience, and of one terrible incident in particular, by talking about it with friends and seeking counselling, it wasn't until she heard a line in a true crime podcast while driving her car that she realised the one detail she'd always kept to herself was the thing that was preventing her from healing.
Sarah contacted us at Australian True Crime because she wants to share what happened after she pulled her car over to the side of the road that day. She wants to share her story in case even one of you hears this true crime podcast and is set free the way she has been.
