No jail time for the sex skypers

By johnboy - 23 October 2013 31

The ABC reports that Daniel McDonald and Dylan Deblaquiere will serve no jail time for their grotty capers at ADFA, merely suffer ruined lives:

Today in the ACT Supreme Court, Justice John Neild handed McDonald two 12-month good behaviour bonds and Deblaquiere one 12-month good behaviour bond.

Deblaquiere has already left the military, while it is understood the ADF will make a decision about McDonald’s ongoing employment now that the sentence has been handed down.

What’s Your opinion?

These guys are to the officers of the ADF what first year law students are to judges.

Well said.

Yes, gentlemen, having consensual sex that’s against your workplace rules is just as bad as filming it and showing it to various third parties without the consent of your partner.

It’s the sex that was the problem here, not the unapproved pornography. In fact, I am looking at naked pictures of your sister right now. She’s a slut for letting this happen to her.

Incredible how Gillard created legislation and got it through in a week to get the men brought before the courts.

Existing legislation was used. No new legislation was created.

I’m not sure what you are referring to.

Please point out exactly what legislation you are referring to. It is my understanding that they were charged under existing ACT statutes.

I will not point out exactly which legislation I am referring to, however I will refer you to the charge of “using a carriage service in a way which was offensive” which was I believe enacted through commonwealth legislation.

I would expect the decision on McDonald’s future with the ADF was made long ago. Now the court case is over, it can be announced and carried out.

Just glad I know their names what these scum bags look like. This mud is going to stick for a long time.

Im suprised one of them even considered sleeping with a woman, considering he prefers to receive gobbies from new footy team members.

The point I have made is that these fellas have learnt their lesson, and been punished.

But do not forget that ‘fraternisation’ is as pointed out by Thumper, is grounds for disciplinary action. She did get into an ‘arrangement’ with one of the guys. These men did the wrong thing. But so did she.

It does appear to be fraternisation as well which I’m pretty sure is frowned upon at ADFA. I would presume the victim in this case would be brought to account for her part in the act. Not that she would ever be named as it may harm her reputation.

You’re right – the lesson these grubs learned was that you can treat women like dirt and get away with it.

Thumper said :

Fraternisation is severely frowned upon and is grounds for disciplinary action.

Forget the disciplinary action – didn’t the victim of this incident get bullied out of the ADF?

I understand the victim was already in the poo for another incident of fraternising, and probably left after realising that a good career would be difficult with these things on her record.

It’s a real shame. There’s no upside for the people involved in these situations, one can only hope the standard has been raised a bit for others.
