He’s prosecuted some of the nation's most high profile killers, including Ivan Milat and now Mark Tedeschi AM QC is set to share his experiences in Ulladulla.
The Rotary Club of Milton/Ulladulla will be hosting a dinner event next month on Friday, February 5.
Rotarian Glenn Rowan said the event is already sparking interest across the community.
“The response has been really, really good so far so we think it may blow right out,” he said.
“This guy is really interesting and the things he’s done and seen is pretty special so we’re really looking forward to it.”
Mr Rowan said the group were lucky enough to secure Mr Tedeschi after it was discovered a local Rotarian was friends with him.
“We’re so lucky to have him and it’s going to be a good, entertaining event for Ulladulla to have someone that we wouldn’t normally be able to get here,” he said.
The dinner will be held from 6pm at the Ulladulla Civic Centre. Tickets for the two course meal are $30 and are available from the Milton Ulladulla Ex Servos Club.
Tickets will be available until early February but will interest already high, Mr Rowan encouraged everyone to get in now.
“We’re hoping for around 150 to 200 people and we’re encouraging people to get their tickets early so they’re not disappointed,” he said.
Mr Tedeschi will speak about his new book ‘Kidnapped’ which chronicles the story of the only child kidnapping for ransom case Australia has seen.
Eight-year-old Graeme Thorne was kidnapped on his way to school in July 1960 after his parent’s lottery windfall piqued the attention of Stephen Bradley who was later convicted for Graeme’s kidnap and murder.
‘Kidnapped’ uses Mr Tedsechi’s story telling skills and research to bring to the public one of Australia’s biggest crimes.
Mr Tedeschi is the Senior Crown Prosecutor for NSW and has practised at the coalface of the criminal courts for 38 years.
His first book, Eugenia was shortlisted for an Australian Book Industry Award
