There is an added dynamic to this. Strange but not unheard of to be so drunk as to act in mistakenly, even grossly so. Comedian's sex assault appeal fails. In July this year Judge Mark Perkins sentenced the man to eight months home detention, telling him "it is clear this was grave offending".
Whatever it is.
Innocent until proven. I agree that there would probably be pain involved for the child, and to protect her from undue focus by not actually mentioning as opposed to actively suppressing her name should be good enough.
Once again though, the press is guilty of mud-raking bullshit. What should be suppressed is any details of the crime which would identify the victim. Not another name supression.
Andrei, Same here. Harris is currently serving a prison sentence of five years and nine months for 12 counts of indecent assault on four teenage girls. Police are expected to brief the media on Saturday. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, thrust down to Hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam the world for the ruin of souls.
Mary Rose — the fact that he has been convicted suggests to me that no-one is being let off due to drunkenness. What the fuck? The High Court ordered the District Court to resentence him.
