‘Roast Busters’ drives calls for sexual violence court
Shared from Google News & Weather
A decision looms on whether New Zealand will get its first sexual violence court, while other specialist courts are proving a success.
The decision will be the final instalment in the Roast Busters’ under-age sex case scandal, which revived the idea at a time when other specialist courts were proving their worth in cutting reoffending.
Roast Busters was the name given to a group of teenage boys who boasted online about having sex with drunk girls, some of them under-age.
Part of the reason no one was prosecuted in the scandal was the teenage girls’ families not wanting them to be put through the wringer of court.
