Summary Cassandra Sainsbury: The Real Story<br />For the past five weeks South Australian woman Cassandra Sainsbury has been locked away in a dingy and overcrowded prison in Bogota, Colombia, accused of smuggling cocaine. The evidence against her is damning: 5.8kg of the drug were found in her suitcase at the airport as she tried to leave the country. Cassandra says she's innocent, but the reality is her prospects are bleak. It's a distressing time for the 22-year-old as well as her mother and sister, who've spent the last week in Bogota trying to make sense of this awful nightmare.<br /><br />Don't Tell<br />As a 12-year-old, Lyndal was sexually abused while she was a boarder at Toowoomba Prep, one of the Anglican Church's elite private schools in Queensland. Her attacker always told her, "Don't tell, no-one will believe you," and as it turned out, he was right. The abuse went on for eight harrowing months before the predator's evil was discovered. But that wasn't the end of Lyndal's suffering. Her attempts to get the help she desperately needed were ignored by the school and the church. Even approaches to then-archbishop Peter Hollingworth led nowhere. He went on to become Australia's governor-general, while Lyndal's life spiralled out of control. After years of misery, one day she decided she'd had enough and what she did next saw the beginning of the end for the governor-general. Lyndal's inspirational battle has now been turned into a movie called Don't Tell, but she's never spoken publicly about her ordeal. Until now
