Anyone else got any great stories of how to score a root?

A NORTHERN Territory man said he could see into the future and told a Japanese tourist she would die if they did not have sex on a "sacred site," a court has heard.

 

The woman said the man told her he could see her dying in hospital in three years time if she rejected his advances while at Ubirr Rock, a popular Kakadu site of ancient cave art.

 

The woman's allegations were heard at a committal hearing in Darwin Magistrate's Court this week.

 

Magistrate Michael Carey dismissed the four charges of sexual intercourse without consent against the man saying the woman's evidence was unreliable, contradictory in some places and "did not hang together".

 

"There is no way (a jury) would convict on her evidence," Mr Carey said.

 

The woman alleged she was raped four times over October 16 and 17 last year at Ubirr Rock and the man's Jabiru home 40km southwest of the tourist attraction.

 

The court heard the woman met the man when he offered to fix her tyre.

 

Doctor Tracey Johns, who later examined the woman, told the court her patient said he had manipulated her into staying at his house while he fixed her tyre by talking about the dangers of camping in Kakadu.

 

Prosecutor Georgia McMasters said the Crown's case was that the woman did not have the ability to say no because her will was over powered by him.

 

"She was not allowed to reject him," Ms McMaster's said.

 

When interviewed the woman, who had limited english said; "I had no option but to follow because I was scared, I was told I could no longer say no in this sacred place. I was told if I reject I will die, someone did because of rejecting."

 

Magistrate Carey said the woman did not indicate a lack of consent to the sexual encounters.

 

He said she may have been, "incredibly naive or gullible".

First thought: Wow. I don't think I've ever come across a better example of gullibility. Either that, or a worse made up charge.

Second thought: Unusual name for a Japanese woman (McMasters).

He said she may have been, "incredibly naive or gullible".

...and very brave and adventurous. Not sure I would visit Kakadu for a camping holiday on my own.

 

Cybes, McMasters is the prosecutor.

It's not a get out of gaol free card, consent given under a false impression or on account of deceptive behaviour is not considered real consent in Australia. Doesn't mean she isn't incredibly stupid for believing that shit though.

She wasn't on a camping holiday. She had a flat, and her options appeared to be camp or go with this guy.
