Shortcut: The high school music teacher who preyed upon his students

This is a "Shortcut" episode. It’s a shortened version of this week’s more detailed full episode, which is also available on our feed. 

Anna is a fabulous, vivacious woman who seems to have lived many lifetimes.

But the deeper we get into the business of why she joins us on Australian True Crime, the darker forces that drives people like Anna and their fast paced lives becomes more apparent.

For many years, Anna was trying to cope with the fact that she'd been preyed upon by a teacher, Trenton John Wickers, and the matter had never felt resolved in any way.

An unbelievable chance encounter changed Anna's life and led her to confront the situation and her attacker. This is Anna's story.
