Alleged underage sexual assault

By johnboy 10 August 2013 65

A 20-year-old man will face court this morning (Saturday, August 10) over an alleged sexual assault of a child under the age of 16.

Police will allege the offence occurred in July this year.

The man attended the Woden Police Station yesterday (Friday, August 9), where he was interviewed by detectives from Criminal Investigations Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Team (SACAT).

He was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with one count of sexual intercourse with a young person.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.

Actually the road laws are uniform around the country.

If you think that, then you don’t know the road rules. There are STILL differences.

Such as? Please give some examples.

Speed limits for L-Platers is probably the most obvious.

Does the varying hours from state to state for school zones count?

Are the Melbourne hook turns only a Vic rule, or a rule everywhere but just with no other state having them.

I thought two of those would be your responses.

Firstly with different limits for L and P platters, these lower limits are licence conditions not road rules, same too with limitations on power etc.

You do realise the L plater speed limits in NSW have only been limited to a licence condition for a month now? Before that every L plater from any state had to do 80kmph in NSW. When they updated the legislation to 90kmph, they (probably mistakenly copied from the P legislation) reworded it to state “if issued in NSW”. Even then the NSW RTA haven’t acknowledged the new legislation and still think all L platers should be doing the NSW limit.

John that’s an excellent point and all the men involved are clearly disturbed.

The one in the story is particularly icky.

I recall one Humbert Humbert carrying on with his excuses “but she seduced me!” Yes she did and as her step father you should have walked away. But his insanity is what makes the story so compelling. Getting into the mind of a pedophile you see why they can only be who they are.

The law recognises that everyone is different. I remember girls having sex at 14/15 and just thinking “ew no thank you” but they really did seem happy with their decision. So of course it’s impossible to decide that a 15 year old with a 25 year old boyfriend is horrifying and then for it to all be super hunky dunky a few months later when she turns 16.

So once one has reached the age of consent then according to the law it’s nobody’s business other than the consenting individuals involved regardless of the age difference or any moral position others wish to express.

It’s not “super hunky dunky” when she’s 16 either, it’s just legal. Like the difference between driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.05 and 0.049 – the cut off may be arbitrary, but you are pushing your luck at 0.049.

The question is not whether the girl had any regrets at age 15, but whether she will have any at age 18, 25, 35, 45 etc. In many cases they will.
