Summary
In possibly the shortest murder trial in Queensland history, in 1988, Aboriginal woman Robyn Kina was convicted of the murder of her abusive de facto spouse and sentenced to life in prison. The whole process took less than 4 hours. This is Robyn's story, as related to Social Worker, Dave Berry, to whom she originally reached out for help whilst on remand. Behind the bars of Brisbanes infamous Boggo Road Gaol, Robyn embraced educational and other opportunities, and a self-confidence began to emerge along with a desire to help others languishing in desperate circumstances. Robbie was sensationally released from prison after a media-generated Australia-wide outcry. Follow her steps as she built a productive happy life and went on to make an outstanding contribution to prison welfare work through the Sisters Inside organisation
