Lehrmann rape trial ‘should never have been a media story’
Sky News Digital Editor Jack Houghton says the Lehrmann rape trial should never have been a media story but became one “due to the egos” of some Australian media personalities.
“ACT Prosecutor Shane Drumgold has dropped the sexual assault charges against Bruce Lehrmann due to alleged mental health concerns about complainant Brittany Higgins,” Mr Houghton said.
“And for Shane Drumgold to stand there and tell Australians he still believes he can successfully prosecute Lehrmann … is absolutely inappropriate and grossly unfair to all parties.”
“Shane Drumgold has botched this case from the beginning.”
