Sex Crimes Punished Lightly if Victim Is Not a Virgin

ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- Sexually abusing a teenager is less serious a crime if the girl is not a virgin, Italy's higher court said on Friday in a controversial ruling that immediately drew a barrage of criticism.

The court ruled in favor of a man in his forties, identified only as Marco T., who forced his 14-year old stepdaughter to have oral sex with him after she refused intercourse.

The man, who has been sentenced to three years and four months in jail, lodged an appeal arguing that the fact that his stepdaughter had had sex with men before should have been taken into consideration during his trial as a mitigating factor.

The supreme court agreed, saying that because of her previous sexual experiences, the victim's "personality, from a sexual point of view, is much more developed than what would be normally expected of a girl of her age".

"It is therefore fair to argue that (the damage for the victim) would be lower" if the abused girl was not a virgin, Italian news agencies quoted the court as saying.

This means the man could now be handed a lighter sentence.

The supreme court is no stranger to controversial judgments.

In recent years it has ruled that "an isolated and impulsive" pat on a woman's buttocks at work did not constitute sexual harassment, and returned a verdict that a woman could not have been raped because she was wearing skin-tight jeans.

That's just all kinds of wrong. Sexual harassment is sexual harassment, no matter what a girl's sexual experience is.

Re: Sex Crimes Punished Lightly if Victim Is Not a Virgin

i donīt think the should be made a difference whether the victim was a virgin or not in the jugement. i would really want to know what kind of person can decided something so horrible like that.

Re: Sex Crimes Punished Lightly if Victim Is Not a Virgin

...what the fuck difference does it make as long as it was unconsentual. I think doing any kind of sexual act on one's step-parent would be immensely traumatizing, regardless of previous sexual experience or lack thereof.
