It definitely does. The 'sexual touching' offence includes groping someone on the arse or the tit. Whether a crime has been committed hinges on whether the toucher thought there was consent. So stroking a random's bum as she walks past would probably mean no expectation of consent, but what if you'd been eye f**king each other for the preceding 20 minutes? I've done it in the past, assumed consent and it turned out I was right. Other times I was wrong. You don't always know if flirting is 'just flirting' or not, and shouting at chicks in noisy pubs can kill the mood.
Him: "ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME AROUND?"
Her (smiling and inaudible): ".........................."
Sometimes it's just easier putting a hand on her bum. Get rid of the time wasters. But then if she doesn't like it she's unlikely to call the cops on you unless you're a f**ken jerk. In this case it was five counts of sexual touching. Whether it's five different women or five times on the same one, it's somewhat jerklike. But Drown has his technique and he has no doubt pleased a lot of women. Sometimes you get to smash some moistie in the toilet and other times you face criminal charges. You just never know your luck.
A can’t see any situation whereby we announce him on the team sheet on Tuesday with his court date not until Wednesday.
police would have checked the venue cctv before arresting and charging.
5 separate charges is specific and likely based on evidence already viewed.
If a complainants tells the cops “he touched me 5 times” they don’t slap 5 charges on you without evidence, you cop one initial charge whilst they investigate further.
I think Dyl may be in a spot of bother
Yes, I found that part of the article interesting. I thought AVOs were more for people who were known and/or that you'd expect to come across again/regularly?An AVO was granted? Is this a domestic situation? Otherwise wouldn't a PVO or bail conditions suffice, if the alleged victim is unknown to him?
And the venue staff are probably all Roosters fans... Probably doctored the footage just to get our superstar suspended... Pricks....Reading the article it seems as though it was one person who complained to the venue and the venue contacted the police. One would guess they looked at their CCTV footage beforehand however that doesn't guarantee that anything was captured.
We'll wait for the details I suppose. I've got a feeling it might be someone he knows.
Yep, understood.There are two types of AVOs:
An ADVO relates to the protection of a person/s where a domestic relationship exists between the parties. An APVO relates to the protection of a person/s where there is no domestic relationship between the parties, eg co-workers and neighbours.
