Maggie Kirkpatrick

July 2015: Australian soap actress Maggie Kirkpatrick is charged with child sexual offences. This is not a rape case, but it is included here because it was historical in nature, because the victim was a celebrity, and also because she is a woman. Never forget this can happen to you too, ladies.

The actress had appeared in a long running TV series in which she portrayed a lesbian prison officer; she is also a supporter of gay rights - gay indeed. She was probably targeted on account of both of these. The case went to trial, and she was convicted in August the same year, but she appealed and in December 2015 that conviction was quashed. Although the judge appears merely to have given her the benefit of a reasonable doubt, she was lucky other chancers and lunatics didnít come forward as often happens in celebrity cases. Or maybe they did but were not deemed credible?

After her successful appeal, her accuser was said to have been taken away in an ambulance, so clearly Maggie Kirkpatrick was not the only actress in court that day.

This article by Wayne Flower appeared on the website of the Australian newspaper Herald Sun. I have resisted the temptation to correct the spelling mistakes.

This video of the victim talking about the case appeared on the website of the London Daily Mail, December 18, 2015. As you can see, she was very distressed. Note especially what she says about how protocol has changed since the 1980s.

File this evil cunt under NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED.
