A man who said he had no choice but to laugh at a young girl he mistreated because he thought she was too young to have sex because she was “too fat” is writing to the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRRC) to tell them his story.
The man, whose name has been suppressed for legal reasons, told the ABC he was at a party in October 2014 and was approached by a girl who was sitting on a couch, in a bedroom and outside.
The young woman’s parents were there and the young woman was wearing nothing but a white thong and was holding a handbag.
He said he saw her walk up to the couch and say “goodbye” to her friend, but didn’t believe her.
When he said to the girl, “what are you doing?” she responded, “I’m sorry, I don’t know what to do.”
He said she told him that she didn’t have a boyfriend, and when he asked her what she was doing, she said “I don’t care, I just want to be friends.”
She said that after a few minutes, he put his hand in her handbag and she said, “okay, go on”.
She said he told her he wanted to do more than talk to her, and they continued to hug each other.
The boy’s mother had just turned away from her daughter.
“She’s been through so much,” he said.
“I’ve seen her get abused, I’ve seen the kids I’ve known get abused.
I’ve been a part of it.”
He wrote to the AHRRC after a series of emails to the organisation from other victims of sexual abuse.
The commission says the commission does not investigate complaints of sexual assault but it is open to any allegations made by victims.
“The AHRNC is an independent statutory body, not an independent body for which the Commission is an advisory body, and it is in the best interests of victims of any sexual abuse to receive full and frank information from the AHPRA,” the commission said in a statement.
“We are not currently investigating this matter, but we will consider any relevant information when we do.”
‘She was crying’: Man accused of ‘grooming’ young woman After the meeting with the young girl in October, the man’s mother approached him and told him he was being a bad parent and that she was concerned about him.
“That she’s crying and you’re being such a bad father,” she said.
He told her she had to get out of the house because she could hurt herself if she tried to touch him.
She told him she had a boyfriend and that he needed to go to the police.
“When I said, ‘I’m not your father,’ he went quiet,” the woman said.
When the man came home the next day he had told his parents about the incident.
He had said he didn’t want to talk to them, but said he was sorry.
“He’s a good man,” she told the man.
The ABC has contacted the man for comment.
The AHRRRC has been approached for comment and will publish a story when it is ready.
The organisation has said it will conduct a thorough investigation.
“Our inquiry into the sexual abuse of a young woman who was a vulnerable child in 2013 will look at whether the child was given access to alcohol, drugs or a power play or coercion,” it said in its statement.
