Thirty years ago, broadcaster (now Senator) Derryn Hinch went to jail for naming a paedophile priest, a convicted child rapist, still running a camp for kids in Victoria. A dramatic measure he felt necessary to take when the police, politicians and church leaders refused to take action to protect children at risk.

He then became a lightning rod for victims and their families --- through radio, TV, his internet blog and social media. And now in the Senate representing six million Victorians and children all over Australia.

Hinch wore an electronic bracelet and spent five months under house arrest in 2012 for breaching suppression orders, naming two of Australia's worst serial sex offenders at a rally on the steps of Victoria's Parliament House.

And, in 2014, he spent 50 days in jail -- including two weeks in solitary confinement -- for published comments about the Jill Meagher rape/murder case.

On release from jail, Hinch led a 180-kilometre, ten-day, Jail 2 Justice walk from Langi Kal Kal Prison to the steps of Parliament House to present 11 volumes of a petition (containing 130,000 names) calling for a national public register of convicted sex offenders.

That sparked the formation of Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party and in July, 2016, he was elected to the Senate.

Derryn Hinch is a man of the people who stands up for what is right and just, no matter the cost.

Build it and they will come.
