An Australian judge decided to let a Muslim man off the hook even though he sexually assaulted 8 women in bikinis after the man argued that grabbing women was permitted in his culture.
According to reports, an Afghani teenager who moved to Australia groped 8 women at the popular Surfers Paradise beach. The victims were between the ages of 15 and 24.
“Prosecutor Nicholas McGhee told the court the assaults variously included the boy touching his victims’ buttocks, genitalia and breasts, sometimes under their bikinis,” the Herald Sun.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The defendant’s age and identity could not be confirmed by the court due to incomplete immigration records, but Yahoo! News reported he is from Afghanistan. He pleaded guilty to the repeat sexual assaults.
Shockingly, the judge in the case admitted that the teen committed serious offenses, yet let the suspect off with a slap on the wrist. Instead of jail time or deportation, the offender received mild probation and a mandatory sexual awareness course.
“Judge Kent ordered the boy to undergo a ‘positive sexuality’ course as part of his probation,” the Herald Sun explained. The court also found that “his immersion in a new culture partially explained his actions.”
The judge actually bought his “immersion in a new culture” argument as justification for sexually assaulting women.
It is unbelieveable that a judge would accept that argument. Groping women shouldn’t be something that is acceptable in any culture.
