Angry mother should, perhaps, not have let husband sleep with 15 yr old daughter for a month

By johnboy - 9 July 2010 14

The Queen of Canberra court reporting, Jenna Hand, brings us another sordid tale in the Canberra Times from the Supreme Court:

A mother has told a Canberra court that she felt ”angry” and ”traded in” when her husband said he had feelings for her 15-year-old daughter.

The 47-year-old man, who cannot be named, is on trial in the ACT Supreme Court having pleaded not guilty to three counts of having sexual intercourse with the girl and committing an act of indecency on her in 2008.

The girl’s mother said yesterday that her then-husband slept on a sofa bed with the 15-year-old ”most nights” in January of that year, when there were sometimes up to seven children in the house.

While not our place to comment on affairs of the heart, it does seem that complicated domestic arrangements are over represented before the courts.

What’s Your opinion?

I really think that this 47 year old does not deserve to have his name withheld from the press. In my opinion people should be able to name and shame him, this is disgraceful.

Oh, isn’t family life wonderful? Real morally upright stuff. Much better than those sinful and immoral homosexual relationships.

Slicker, I hardly think a woman shacked up with a bloke who has admitted sleeping with one of her children whilst “sometimes up to seven children are in the house”, from who knows how many other fathers, constitutes the “family unit” you have attacked. I could imagine a woman like this who was more concerned about “being traded in” than the well being of her child is not a model of society in any family structure. Your cynical attempt to push your political agenda in this manner is sad and immature. Perhaps that great left-leaning Labor Prime Minister Paul Keating said it best, “2 men and a dog don’t make a family”.

First off wtf is he doing sleeping with her 15 year old daughter in the first place?
And secondly, instead of feeling “angry” and “traded in” any normal mothers first response would be to kick the SOB where it hurts for doing this to HER CHILD!

BTW agree with caf and R Slicker

From the Canberra Times article:
“The witness said she had not “made it up” as suggested by the man’s barrister.”

It must be days when you have to ask a 15 year old whether she only pretended to have sex with her stepfather (even though he’s basically admitting it) that becoming a barrister suddenly seems like maybe it wasn’t the best idea.

As much as everyone deserves a fair trial, you’d really have to be kicking yourself when you say something like that.

What a dumb stupid woman, she should have kicked the a—le out, and rang police.

I think we should avoid confusion by introducing a new phrase, halfly-full.

Halfly-full of the population is smarter than the other halfly…full.

100% of 50% is fully half..

Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how downright stupid most people are. Think about an average aussie – fully half the people are even dumber than that!

Fully half or fully sik bro?

I shed tears for literacy levels.

BTW, how can something be fully half?

R. Slicker: Aye, good thing we’re not allowing gay marriage, it might debase the institution of the family!

PaulM 1:14 pm 09 Jul 10

Seven kids, eh? Looks like the daughter was looking to get started early – no doubt at about the same age that mummy got started. Mummy’s complaint? Not that her daughter was being sexed by a 47-to man, but that she had been “trraded in” for a newer model. Not a parent’s anger, but a wife’s jealousy. Nice.

I was more referring to having seven kids and a husband sharing the couch with one of them.

Sexual abuse is not an affair of the heart, it is a crime.

Likewise the mother should be outraged about the man’s crime against her daughter, and the harm to the girl, before she worries about feeling ‘traded in’.
