Man who had relationship with primary-school girl jailed for 10 years

Several things about this item. First, an immigrant man is jailed for only 10 years for repeatedly raping a eight year old girl, who eventually bore a child as a result. Second, that the man claimed as a defense that it was acceptable in his culture to have sex with a young girl, that culture being Islamic. Third, that the report never mentioned that the man is a Muslim.

One cannot help but think that if he were a Christian man, he would have been jailed for many, many more years. To excuse in part his barbaric behavior because he is a Muslim is an act of dhimmitude and will only send the message that Muslims are exempt from the full weight of the law.


Man who had relationship with primary-school girl jailed for 10 years

A MAN who claimed it was culturally acceptable for him to have a sexual relationship with a primary-school child who later bore him a son will spend up to 10 years in jail.

The 31-year-old, now classified as a pedophile, had claimed his cultural background meant age was not a relevant factor in choosing a wife or sexual partner, the County Court in Melbourne heard.

But in sentencing the man, who migrated as a refugee from a north-Asian country, Judge Lisa Hannan said his continued sexual relationship with the girl - from the age of eight until she fell pregnant - was repulsive and defied morality.

The court heard the man, who was married to an adult at the time of the offending and already had a child, had an IQ in the bottom 5 per cent for his age group.

"Your conduct is abhorrent to anyone with even a shred of decency or moral compass,'' Judge Hannan said.

"Whether or not it may or might have been acceptable in any culture in any part of the world is irrelevant.''

The court heard the man, who pleaded guilty to charges of persistent sexual abuse of a minor and child stealing, had told authorities in his cultural background "there were no restrictions on age'' for a relationship.
