Indignation as a repeated rapist teen who chased young schoolgirls while they were too drunk to reject his mean advances. AVOID jail
- The 17-year-old man raped three teenagers under the age of 16 after getting drunk
- Judge Sinclair told the court that the victims had suffered a serious emotional trauma
- The perpetrator had been a talented sportsman in high school
A serial teen rapist who drank drunk schoolgirls avoided a prison sentence, causing indignation.
The 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded two counts of rape and another sexual behavior with a person younger than 16 earlier this month in the North Shore District Court in Auckland, but only got one year handed over, long house arrest, the New Zealand Herald reported.
Advocates for victims of sexual violence beat the sentence and claimed it & # 39; shocking & # 39; and & # 39; no punishment at all & # 39 ;.
A teenager who knew the perpetrator asked & # 39; What kind of message does that send to girls? & # 39; And said that others could not believe that the rapist was not imprisoned.

The youth had a history of encouraging young people to drink and abuse them while they slept.
In 2016, the teenager founded a 14-year-old girl at a party after being drunk on vodka.
He helped her to bed and she woke up several times when he raped her.
Judge Pippa Sinclair told the court that the victim was too drunk to fight or give permission.
He then attacked a 15-year-old under similar circumstances and forced himself during an event despite a protest in a bathroom.
The court also heard that he had brought a box of alcohol to a party he was invited to, and then encouraged a 14-year-old girl to drink.
After she went to bed, the schoolgirl worked up several times to find the boy who attacked her, but the court heard she was too scared to say anything.
Judge Sinclair told the court that the victims had suffered serious emotional trauma and noted that the attacks left them scarred and sad.
& # 39; (The victims) describe a feeling of being happy and confident prior to your insult … Because your insult has changed their lives – they say they are no longer the same people they had to meet you, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Their mental health has suffered and their relationships with family and friends have been damaged. & # 39;

But the judge also said that young people & # 39; impulsive & # 39; and recognized that the perpetrator had been a talented athlete when he went to a secondary school in North Shore.
& (39) (Young people) can be more impulsive than adults, and prolonged imprisonment can have a crushing effect and minimal benefit to both the suspect and the community in the long term, "she said.
The judge also admitted that his record was previously flawless and explained that young people have a greater capacity for rehabilitation, and that they thought he had a low risk of recidivism.

White Longbon ambassador Mark Longley said he was not satisfied with the sentence.
Mr. Longley – whose daughter Emily was murdered by her boyfriend in 2011 – said the sentence & # 39; sends a terrible message & # 39 ;.
& # 39; What is the deterrence? Did he learn a lesson? Is this enough to stop this man? It's incredible, & he said to the NZ Herald.
Victim lawyer Ruth Money said the sentence would deter others from reporting abuse.
