FixedIt: Befriending a mother does not lead to charges of sexual abuse

July 30, 2017by Jane Gilmore

From the article on

“Police allege the 54-year-old from Churchlands assaulted the boy this month after spending 10 months grooming him.

The man has been charged with eight offences in total including sexual penetration, attempted sexual penetration and indecent dealing with a child. He will appear in Perth Magistrates Court later on Friday.”

Further commentary is too risky until the case has been through the courts.

I’ll wait.
