Public figure found guilty of assault

By sunshine 5 March 2010 29

Whilst he was found guilty of assault i can’t understand why he got away without a conviction. Assault is assault – no matter who you are.  disappointed in the system.

CT have the storyhere.

I’m not very good at this, apparently. What magic combination of words in Google will tell me who it is?

There is a lot of fairly informed comment about who it is. I think that hiding his identity is probably going to do more harm than good. Perhaps Anna Key should have said “an long-retired, non-professional, ex-Rugby” player, vg

Some people sometimes richly deserve a slap.

If every slap ended up with somebody in court facing assault charges, the court system would be choked with every parent who has ever slapped their child.

I feel very sorry for this “public figure” and what he’s been put through, however on the bright side, perhaps this means he no longer has responsibility for the ungrateful parasite and can stop worrying about her 24 hours/day.

An ACT public figure has been found guilty of assaulting a teenage girl. The question arises as to their physical/mental capacity and suitability to continue to be on the public payroll.

The term ‘public figure’ means that they’re a prominent person, not that they’re necessarily any form of Government employee.

No, probably a rugby league player

Like all those other Rugby League players that have been to court that have been kept quiet? FYI that’s a list of zero

I continue to be astounded by Bob Dylan’s lyrics even after all these years. Can you imagine any of today’s songwriters writing or singing material of such profundity?

Is the answering blowing in the wind?

No. Not it’s not.
