The University of Newcastle Legal Centre has been assisting Folbigg in her efforts to seek a judicial enquiry into her case. Folbigg was sentenced to 30 years' jail for the manslaughter of her first child Caleb, 19 days, and the murder of her other children, Patrick, eight months, Sarah, ten months, and Laura, nineteen months between 1989 and 1999, but has always maintained her innocence.
