Corby no longer the golden girl
The voting public across New South Wales now firmly believe that Schapelle Corby is guilty as charged, according to this week’s Taverner Poll published in the Sun Herald Sunday 29 June. 53 percent say she is guilty, only 15 percent say she is innocent, though almost a third are still unsure. The findings come less than a week after the Channel Nine documentary, Schapelle Corby: The Hidden Truth, was aired. This a far fall from grace for the woman behind bars in a Bali prison. At the height of media interest surrounding her trial, over 90 percent of Australians thought she was innocent. Despite believing her to be guilty and having spent 3½ years already in prison, most people still say she should remain in prison though would support a Federal Government initiative for prisoner transfer and see her spending her remaining jail time back here in Australia.
