'Miscarriage of Justice: How do we ensure the Justice system serves the victim not the Perpetrator & Advocay for justice for baby Charlie Mullaley (R.I.P.). 

Judge Eugene M. Hyman retired from the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara (San Jose) where, for 20 years, he presided over cases in the criminal, civil, probate, family, and delinquency divisions of the court. He has presided over an adult domestic violence court and in 1999 presided over the first juvenile domestic violence and family violence court in the United States. Judge Hyman has spoken to both national and international audiences and has published articles on issues surrounding domestic violence in the criminal and family courts-especially with co-occurring issues of substance abuse and mental health. He has a special interest in domestic violence as it affects children in the home and in the family court setting. He has special understanding of sexual abuse, stalking, and strangulation, as they intersect with domestic violence.

Guest Speaker Bio

Kath Pinkerton, is the great aunt of baby Charlie Mullaley (R.I.P) "My name is Kathleen. My beautiful little grand-nephew, Charlie Mullaley, was taken from his mum, Tamica, in the most horrific circumstances after she was arrested by West Australian Police instead of being helped as a domestic violence victim.  Police threw my niece into a van and took her away to be charged, leaving baby Charlie at the site of this horrific domestic violence. Hours later, he was murdered. Now, our family must have justice." You may have heard of our family’s story on the documentary series, See What You Made Me Do. It was in 2013 when this tragedy occurred, and to this day the WA Police refuse to launch an investigation into the way they failed Tamica and her Baby Charlie.
