By the time he was 50 years old, Russell Manser, a convicted bank robber/gaol escapee had spent 23 years in prison. A victim of institutional sexual abuse beginning at the age of 15, he began to suffer from nightmares and self doubts.
From that time his life spiralled out of control. He was in and out of some of the toughest gaols in the country as well as mental health facilities due to drug addiction.
Russell is now the Head of a company, The Voice of a Survivor, that employs a dozen people and provides work for numerous law firms. His goal in life is to gain justice and compensation for those who had experienced similar atrocities to those inflicted on him by people paid to care for him.
