So Help Me God
A powerful emotional journey through the legal process, showing the real impact on the lives of ordinary people. Produced by award-winning Jenny Brockie, whose Cop It Sweet led to a major review of police/Aborigine relations, the program is based in Campbelltown Local Court, south-west of Sydney, and features a group of real-life defendents. They include Heidi, a nineteen-year-old mother charged with receiving stolen goods; Dean, a young man charged with breaking and entering; Joy, a 46-year-old woman whose relatives are trying to have her put in care under the Inebriates Act; Marietta, seeking an order to prevent the girlfriend of her ex-husband from harrassing her; and Robert and Sean, who face prison terms for separate offences of break, enter and steal. The program also features leading Campbelltown legal players - Senior Magistrate Kevin Flack, Legal Aid lawyers, private solicitors, and the Police Prosecutor.
