Demon unmasked: Case of Barry Cable

He was one of WA’s sporting heroes. An AFL legend. But he was also a sexual predator. And a paedophile. Barry Cable preyed on the children of his neighbour - a 12 year-old-girl- frequently, brazenly and for years. After years of abuse, an inability of police to lay charges and a secret appearance WA’s Kennedy Royal Commission into potential police corruption, it seemed the woman’s story would go unheard. And Cable would go unpunished. Until 2018, when the law changed, removing the time limit for sexual abuse survivors to sue their abusers. And that woman called the offices of lawyer Michael Magazanik, of Rightside Legal. Magazanik joins host Tim Clarke to tell her story and her fight for justice.
