DPP v NDQ – Charge of sexual touching withdrawn; no conviction upon sentence

Indecently assaulted a young woman at a community event

NDQ was alleged to have indecently assaulted a young woman at a community event. The police laid two charges in relation to his alleged conduct:

  • sexual touching pursuant to section 66DB Crimes Act 1900
  • and an alternative charge of common assault.

NQD maintained that there was nothing sexual about the touching.

Sexual touching charge was withdrawn by the DPP

After lengthy negotiations, the DPP determined to accept a plea of guilty to the alternative charge of common assault, and the sexual touching charge was withdrawn by the DPP and dismissed by the Court. Upon sentence, NDW received a 12-month community release order without conviction.
