Steven Whybrow’s role in Bruce Lehrmann’s case
Whybrow is in charge of the high-profile case of Lehrmann, Australian Liberal Party senior advisor. He previously worked in the office of Senator Linda Reynolds.
In March 2019, Brittany Higgins, a Liberal Party employee plus colleague, accused Lehrmann of raping her in the Parliament’s office. Higgins remained silent to defend the Liberal Party and herself and eventually decided to speak up and demand justice.
However, in the early hours of March 23, 2019, Lehrmann pleaded not guilty to one count of sexual intercourse without consent against Higgins.
Later, Whybrow requested that the trial begin on June 27 and stated that he had a lot of information to present, and he also said that warrants were required.
Likewise, Chief Justice Lucy McCallum agreed to hold the trial on Whybrow’s requested date, noting that Shane Drumgold SC, the ACT’s director of public prosecutions, expected it to last no more than four weeks.
On the other hand, Higgins was accompanied to court by her partner, David Sharaz, and Heidi Yates, the ACT Victims of Crime Commissioner. Shane Drumgold SC, ACT’s Director of Public Prosecutions and a high school dropout turned top prosecutor, is leading the prosecutions’ fight against the accused.
