A victim of child abuse at the Retta Dixon Home in Darwin has thanked all those involved in exposing the horrendous truths about the institution's history during Royal Commission hearings.
Barbara Cummings (pictured) says a group of victims and former residents of the home marched from the Darwin Supreme Court to the police station to seek justice for past charges dropped against a house parent.
She says Don Henderson was never convicted of abuse at the home and escaped jail despite being found guilty of sexually abusing two boys at a public pool.
Ms Cummings says there's enough evidence to put Mr Henderson behind bars and he needs to face new charges.
