Bruce Lehrmann plans to write a revealing book about his experiences and studies in law, it can be revealed.
Sky News reported on Wednesday night that the former political staffer met biographer and journalist Andrew Urban about a book.
They are the first stages. I cannot comment further, but it is a topic that any journalist or author would be interested in,” Urban told the network.
“I had a meeting with Bruce about the idea of a book, but we haven’t started writing it or looking at the content yet.”
Bruce Lehrmann plans to write a tell-all book about his life, Sky News reported on Wednesday night.
The discussions are preliminary and Urban told Sky that he has not yet met with a publisher.
Mr. Urban is a prolific author who has written books on topics as varied as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and former Crown Prosecutor Margaret Cunneen.
Former employee Brittany Higgins accused Lehrmann of sexually assaulting her at Parliament House in March 2019.
He has always maintained his innocence and pleaded not guilty at trial last year. Lehrmann’s trial failed last year after jury misconduct.
Prosecutors later dropped the sexual assault charge against her over concerns about Ms Higgins’ mental health.
Ironically, Ms. Higgins has plans similar to Lehrmann’s. She is studying law on the Gold Coast and has a $325,000 book deal.
Daily Mail Australia previously reported that Ms Higgins’ book deal may have to be put on hold until Lehrmann’s libel suits against Channel 10 and news.com.au are settled.
