The fact that this had never come up before despite Irene having lived with Tasha and been around for each of the above stories was rather weakly {{Hand Wave}}d by an implication of repressed memories, which were only now being triggered by Olivia opening up about being sexually abused by a friend of her uncle.

** To a huge extent, Darryl "Brax" Braxton. His crimes included running a drug operation; having Liam Murphy beaten up for testifying against his brother; attempting to murder both Pirovic brothers (someone beat him to it both times); stealing the evidence in armed robbery and framing a mostly innocent bystander; attacking Johnny Barrett, stealing the proceeds of a robbery and leaving him for dead; and attacking Dean Sanderson, stealing the proceeds of a robbery and leaving him for dead. He receives no legal punishment for any of it, and on the two occasions he does go to jail he's innocent and gets out pretty quickly (the second time by ''faking his death and escaping'', albeit to protect his family).
** Kane Phillips went unpunished for his role in kidnapping Shauna and later raping Dani, instead being given a FreudianExcuse in the form of his father and brother's abuse, while being supposedly [[LoveRedeems redeemed]] by his relationship with Dani's sister Kirsty. Similar to Brax, the one time he was convicted of a crime was when he was framed by the aforementioned father and brother, and he and Kirsty skipped town before sentencing. He would later be apprehended in 2008 and tried for the robberies he was forced to commit while on the run, accepting a plea deal to protect Kirsty. However, in a baffling incidence of WrongfulAccusationInsurance, he later appealed the sentence and was released, despite having no apparent way of exonerating himself for the original robbery, to say nothing of the ones he ''had'' committed.
