Indecent assault of a young woman at a community event
NDQ was alleged to have committed an indecent assault on 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Sexual touching charge was withdrawn by the DPP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. They also withdrew sexual touching charge, and it was dismissed by the Court. Upon sentence, NDW received a 12-month community release order without conviction.
