In 2017, an unidentified woman accused respected Australian actor John Jarratt of an historic rape, which allegedly happened over 40 years ago. John Jarratt maintained
his innocence of this assault from the start
but the allegation and the publicity surrounding it
was enough to cost John Jarratt his career and his livelihood.
The female bringing the accusation walked out of court
without this costing her a cent.
And she still has a suppression order protecting her identity.
