haha, yes, if you read between the lines of a lot of our laws it becomes ‘if you do this, get a lawyer to argue it for you’. ← they’re not even arguing points of law, merely convincing a jury.
Our system, being based off the British, is founded upon a conservative (catholic) system which has then been modified via emotive public opinion/knee jerk reactions. When a district court judge (it’s kind of the middle level of importance) makes a ruling that actually works, there’s uproar because Australia wants to jail its way out of the problem.
Here’s the interesting kicker, in Australia the age of consent is 16 but for registered child sex offenders it becomes 18. Like I said, laws created by emotive reaction.
