Jane Wins Trial Of Attack terror

"Jane" might only be 22 but she knows all about tragedy.
She became a teenage alcoholic, fell victim to drugs, turned to prostitution and has suffered the pain of losing twin babies.
But today she is grateful Just to be alive after surviving the terrifying ordeal of multiple rape.
Yesterday, after Steven Richard Smith was jailed for 15 1/2 years, with a minimum of 12 1/2 years, for multiple rapes and other crimes on Jane (not her real name), she said she went to police in a bid to stop Smith striking again.
"The main reason I reported it was because I was thinking that next time it might be somebody's daughter," she said.
"I knew there was a risk when I got involved (in prostitution). I'm not saying I deserve it because it shouldn't happen, but I expect it."
Jane, who had been in the prostitution industry for about three years before being picked up in St Kilda by Smith and his friend in May last year.
She said many victims in her field did not speak up because they were scared of how their complaints might be viewed.
"It was hard at times and I felt like giving up but each time I started thinking like that I told myself I couldn't for the sake of others," she said.
