The Canberra Times has a charmless story (running without byline) on the defence of Kevin John Jones, 50, who faced the court yesterday charged with raping his 19 year old cellmate at the Belconnen Remand Centre.
- “According to the alleged victim’s evidence, when his advances were rejected, Jones forced the 19-year-old down on to the bed face-first, removed his track pants and underwear, and raped him.
”He was telling me not to scream, that if I screamed he would bash me,” the alleged offender said…
”He told me that if I didn’t say nothing, he’d buy me a pouch of White Ox (tobacco), but if I told, he’d kill me,” he said.
Jones is claiming the alleged victim initiated proceedings.
