    Default Man get 8 months in jail for slapping woman on bottom

    Seems a little harsh to me...
    Obviously the man had no right to slap the woman on the bottom and it was an intrusion of her privacy
    But there is no indication that he was a serial bum slapper and he did appologise when he was arrested
    A severe reprimand would seem more appropiate - but 8 months in jail?

    “He says it won't happen again,” said Ms Darcy. “He has learnt his lesson to stay away from drugs and he is worried sick as he did not think of the repercussions. He was so out of it and is deeply ashamed and apologetic.”

    He's been released pending an appeal against the sentence, I'd say on appeal it will be reduced to a suspended sentence.

    Did you miss the part where he spent 15 minutes following the woman and everytime that she turned around he attempted to hide his face, and not only that when she sped up or slowed down so did he? The woman was so terrified that she called her boyfriend ffs.

    Don't like the way this thread is heading so I'll butt out after just saying

    He followed her for 10-15 mins, lowering his head when she turned around.
    Any decent man will cross the road to prevent a woman feeling threatened if he happens to be following her on an empty street.

    This was a sexual assault, however minor
    Just because a serial rapist of his own daughter walks free it doesn't diminish this crime.
    By this logic there would be acceptable levels of assault; I had hoped we had come a long way from this.

    If he fancied her let him buy a bunch of flowers, like the Impulse ad

    So he did it "to get a thrill" and because "she had a nice bum".

    And he was "out of it" on drugs.

    Self-restraint is the most important of the "negative" social virtues imho and this young man failed to exercise it.

    That said, eight months in jail would be a daunting prospect.
