john Doyle Ac, QC

As Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Australia, head of the State’s judiciary for 17 years, John Doyle has won the respect of South Australians from many walks of life.

At his farewell in June 2012 he was critical of the government’s push for increased maximum jail terms. “Increasing punishment is not a solution to the social problem of crime. There is a need for more programs in prison and for persons released on parole,” he said.

Understanding that many prisoners are disconnected from family and community, which inevitably leads them back into crime, Lynn wants to help educate the community, individuals and churches as to how they can be part of the restorative justice solution.
