Darwin man summonsed for Northbourne sexual assault

By johnboy 23 April 2012 22

A 30-year-old man from Darwin has been summonsed to face the ACT Magistrates Court this week on sexual assault charges.

Police will allege the man sexually assaulted a 27-year-old woman in the early hours of Saturday morning, March 17, in her apartment on Northbourne Avenue.

Between 3 and 4 am the woman was walking back to her apartment from the CBD when she was approached by the man on Mort Street.

The man engaged in conversation with the woman, seeking her assistance. The woman allowed the man into her apartment where police will allege he has then sexually assaulted her.

The man will face court on Thursday, April 26, charged with a number of offences including act of indecency without consent, sexual intercourse without consent and sexual assault.

I dunno…how about rape? Or, if living in a wuss-infected society that loves to molly-coddle crims, how about we aim for imprisonment?

Or maybe he will get off the charges because no one can be bothered to turn up for Jury Service.

BAM! Glad to see someone join the dots on this one 🙂

If all they are willing to pay somebody to spend a day working in court is $96, then no justice at all would get done.
Oh, but the *lawyers* and judges get their $2,000-$5,000+ per day. While jurors have to put up with $96?

Sorry, as long as this is the case, all you’re going to get for jury service are the underemployed whose time has that little value.
