Police Wrap – 28 October 2010

By johnboy 28 October 2010 39

1. It’s going to be an interesting trial:

A 47-year-old man from Pearce will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court later today (Thursday, October 28) charged with the sexual assault of a sex worker.

Police will allege that on October 15 the man called the woman and a price was negotiated for sexual services.

On October 21 the man arrived at the house with an envelope he said contained the agreed sum of money. After they had sex the woman checked the envelope to find it did not contain money.

The man left shortly after, promising to return at a later time with the money. However, she has not seen the man since that day.

The woman contacted the Sex Workers Outreach Program who urged her to go to the police.

Police enquiries located the man, they arrested and charged him with sexual intercourse without consent and making off without payment.

UPDATE: The ABC informs us that the gentleman in question is one Akis Livas, and he has been bailed.

2. Belconnen Murder Charges:

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations detectives will charge a 37-year-old former Macquarie man with the murder of Andrew Le Dinh.

The body of Mr Le Dinh was located within his fourth floor apartment on College St, Belconnen on Thursday, May 20. The post-mortem revealed he died from severe head injuries.

CI detectives investigating the case interviewed the man today.

The 37-year-old man will be formally charged with murder, conspiracy to commit a robbery and other offences in the ACT Magistrates Court on November 19.

I’m sure this is the Canberra times version without the context.

Actually, this is fundamentally no different to the recent case of a tattoo artist being charged with assault after the client discovered that he’d had a penis tattooed on his back.

It didn’t matter that he’d consented to being tattooed – the consent was invalid because it was obtained under false pretences.

The situation would be similar if someone claimed to be a doctor and so you let them perform surgery on you, then later discovered that they weren’t. It’d be assault.

This is another example of the DPP being dimwits.

This prostitute has been ripped off, not raped.

Probably the best description – but the law ‘is an ass’ after all.

When I was in the Army back in the 90’s, my sergeant was in a similar situation with a prostitute in Somalia, he had never met her and she was going beserk saying that he owed her money and she would get her family to get it for her.

She was promptly thrown off a bridge and the problem was solved. I think that we can all learn something from that.

Don’t stand on a bridge and make accusations??

I suppose it would depend on whether you put a part of your body inside a part of the shop keepers body as part of the transaction.

why? what makes this particular service special?

“Assault with a dead weapon”
“Receiver of swollen goods”
