Lauren Huxley - R v Farmer - grievous bodily harm with intent to murder

On the afternoon of 9 November 2005 18 year old Lauren Huxley was attacked in her home in Northmead, Sydney, when she came home from TAFE. The house was on fire when she was found unconscious lying on the garage floor bound and gagged with horrific head injuries and covered in petrol. Lauren underwent extensive surgery and rehabilitation for the injuries sustained.

Robert Black Farmer who lived nearby but was not known to the Huxleys was charged with the crime.

In June 2008 in the NSW Supreme Court Farmer was found guilty of 3 counts – detaining his victim, causing grievous bodily harm with intent to murder her, and setting fire to the house thereby endangering the life of his victim. He was sentenced to a non-parole period of 20 years.
