It was alleged that he masturbated in front of the youths and ordered one of them to fetch him some toilet tissue. He then allegedly used the toilet tissue to clean himself up and threw it onto the face of the 14-year old who was lying on his sleeping back next to our client.
Our client faced the Melbourne Children’s Court and Dee Giannopoulos acted on his behalf.
Our client instructed us that the semen on the toilet tissue did not belong to him. We advised our client to provide his DNA to the police. The toilet tissue was tested and it was confirmed that it was not our client’s DNA and that the charge could not be proven by the prosecution.
We sent our client to undertake counselling specific in the area of sexual offending for youth. He engaged well in this counselling and a report was provided to the court and prosecution.
