"The Australian criminal justice system is littered with examples of dangerous criminals being released on parole, only for them to commit heinous crimes again. In a justice system where 'life' rarely means 'life', innocent Australian victims every year lose their lives as a result of the well-oiled revolving doors of our prisons. Even criminals assessed as 'highly likely to re-offend' & with prolific criminal records are released early, with no regard for one of the prime factors in sentencing in the first place - the need to ensure the protection of the community. In this hard-hitting book, highly credentialed lawyerJoe St John looks at the tragic effects these repeat offenders have an innocent victims & their families. The 'human face' behind these avoidable crimes is a story which needs to be told." Trade Paperback. Size: 180mm - 250mm. 235 pages.
