Note: I live in WA but events occurred in Victoria. I was raped when I was 9 years old by a friend of the family's son, and then my brother sexually assaulted me up until about age 13. I was awarded a measly compensatory amount (approx. $23,000) by VOCAT (the Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal) as it was accepted that these events did in fact occur on a police tapped phone call he admitted he knew what he was doing was wrong but continued to do it anyway. Although when formally interviewed by the same police he denied everything. My legal question is: do I have any other recourse under criminal law so as to hold him (my brother) to account for the sexual assault crimes he committed against me?
