The But, But Gang Rape is Ok in my Culture defense (ROPMA watch)
Gang rapist's attacks unavoidable, says lawyer - National - smh.com.au
: "A violent gang rapist should have been given a lesser sentence partly because he was a 'cultural time bomb' whose attacks were inevitable, as he had emigrated from a country with traditional views of women, his barrister has argued.
MSK, who, with his three Pakistani brothers, raped several girls at their Ashfield family home over six months in 2002, was affected by 'cultural conditioning … in the context of intoxification', Stephen Odgers, SC, told the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal yesterday.
MSK, 26, MAK, 25 and MMK, 19, are appealing against the severity of their sentences after they were found guilty of nine counts of aggravated sexual assault in company - a crime carrying a maximum penalty of life imprisonment - against two girls, aged 16 and 17, in July 2002."
