My quest for justice against David Baulch has been a long and tireless one. My motivation has always been to ensure children are safe from him. My journey started in 2006 when my childhood best friend revealed he’d been abused by Baulch and that I’d led him to Baulch.
That was the point I realised I wasn’t the only one besides my sister and myself. I became anxious that he may still be offending and had these anxieties heightened a few months later.
Below is the compilation of my blog posts in order of my journey as I navigated the criminal justice system in my quest to stop Baulch
