A victim of disgusting child sex crimes whose life has gotten out of hand will be deported despite the fact that she had called Australia home since she was nine.

Tracey Glasgow, now 39, will be forced to return to New Zealand after spending much of her adolescence and adult life in and out of detention centers and prisons.

The mother-of-three is addicted to drugs. She was convicted of multiple traffic violations and struggled to adapt to life outside of prison, but lawyers and child abuse advocates say she should stay in Australia.

Lawyers claim that Ms. Glasgow has again failed by the same authorities who failed her as an 11-year-old child when she was first placed in state aid.

Compensation judge Julie Wyatt said her client suffers from a post-traumatic stress disorder due to the trauma she experienced as a state department.

Mrs Glasgow has made several attempts to take her life in the past.

Friends, family and lawyers fear that she will not survive if she is sent to New Zealand, so far away from her support network, The courier post reported.

The mother of Brisbane testified at the Royal Commission in Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and detailed in particular horrific circumstances in Tufnell Home in Nundah, an Anglican run children's home identified by multiple victims.

In her statement, Ms. Glasgow said that she was repeatedly attacked by a priest in the 11 to 12 year old house.

From there, she was sent to a foster home that reported signs of abuse and abuse.

But the pleas for help were ignored and Ms. Glasgow developed a drug addiction by settling several times at Sir Leslie Wilson Youth Detention Center.

The Commission's investigations have since uncovered the institution's obscure secrets, and it is now assumed that sexual abuse and neglect of children during the years that Glasgow was imprisoned there have been windy.

& # 39; There she was abused by two men she mentioned and known to some of my other clients, & # 39; said Mrs. Wyatt.

Mrs. Glasgow has since been in and out of jail, her most recent stint started on July 5, where she was transferred to the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation Center in preparation for deportation.

But proponents in her corner are begging the courts and the government to allow her to stay and rehabilitate in the country – not only for her sake, but also for her children.

She has also promised to change her life and dedicate herself to the best mother she can be to her ten-year-old autistic son.

"I would stay home with my son. I would use any opportunity I could spend time with him. I just want to be a mother to him. I just want to be there. He is such a good child, "she said.

"I am not only going to destroy my life, I am destroying the lives of my children and I have a lot of guilt about that. I really have a lot of guilt about the whole situation. I know I was a child and they tell me is not my fault, but it doesn't stop. & # 39;

Mrs. Glasgow said it took a lot of her strength and courage to come forward.

She initially wanted to stay calm and feared what would happen if she told her story, but found the power to speak to a representative of the royal commission who visited the prison where she was in 2017.

A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said that they would not comment on individual cases, but that a person could be deported if they & # 39; are not of good character & # 39; would prove to be.
