    The Teacher’s Accuser Episode 6: Ducking And Weaving

    Hedley and the team are back to dissect Judge Sarah Huggett’s three-year sentence for Chris Dawson’s unlawful carnal knowledge of a schoolgirl. 

    But in another court, a new drama plays out as education authorities try to dodge accountability for his crimes. We hear the first-hand accounts of students who encountered Dawson in his heyday, and examine the prison reality of a man whose narcissism has brought him all the way back to where it all began.

    The Teacher's Accuser Episode 5: Truth

    "The accused committed an act of carnal knowledge while she was 16 years of age in his and his pupil.”

    That was the judgement of Judge Sarah Huggett, who found Christopher Michael Dawson guilty of carnal knowledge on Wednesday, June 28, 2023. She said the complainant’s evidence had a “ring of truth” that could only lead her to this stunning conclusion.

    In this episode Hedley Thomas, Claire Harvey, David Murray, and Matthew Condon discuss the verdict, as well as Chris Dawson’s reaction to it and what it means for the family of Lynette Dawson.
