A MAN who claimed it was culturally acceptable for him to have a sexual relationship with a primary-school child who later bore him a son will spend up to 10 years in jail.

The 31-year-old, now classified as a pedophile, had claimed his cultural background meant age was not a relevant factor in choosing a wife or sexual partner, the County Court in Melbourne heard.

But in sentencing the man, who migrated as a refugee from a north-Asian country, Judge Lisa Hannan said his continued sexual relationship with the girl - from the age of eight until she fell pregnant - was repulsive and defied morality.

The court heard the man, who was married to an adult at the time of the offending and already had a child, had an IQ in the bottom 5 per cent for his age group.

"Your conduct is abhorrent to anyone with even a shred of decency or moral compass,'' Judge Hannan said.

"Whether or not it may or might have been acceptable in any culture in any part of the world is irrelevant.''


The court heard the man, who pleaded guilty to charges of persistent sexual abuse of a minor and child stealing, had told authorities in his cultural background "there were no restrictions on age'' for a relationship.

But Judge Hannan said the man knew he was breaking Australian law, that he initially lied about having sex with the child and attempted to procure an abortion before a baby was born in 2010.

"You knew what you were doing was wrong,'' the judge said.

Judge Hannan, in setting a seven-year minimum, said his "disgraceful desires'' had "robbed her of her childhood''.


Judge Hannan also disputed the extent of the man's remorse, noting he continued to try to justify his relationship with her - including saying he loved her "for real''.

"I do not think you are truly remorseful ... indeed you still seek to justify it.''
Oh, Uncle Muhammed.

I've never heard a country described as "North Asian". What, like Russia?

My point is there's no such thing as "North Asia" if you're being honest. There's Russia which covers the entire north side of the continent, then Kazakhstan, China, and Mongolia, and everything else would be considered south imo.

So the guys Russian, or the article is straight up lying. Just so weird they would choose that term... It's like saying he's from a land-locked country in the South Pacific.

I honestly didn't even know Mongolia was still a country until I looked at a map just now. :haha7:

I do enjoy their grill, though.

Unremorsefully get an 8 year old pregnant and get UP TO 10 years in prison, swell. Nice justice system. Why is MAN in capital letters in the article? Maybe that is the Australian version of "young people".

the sad part is we all know this is true
If he lived in Canada, he'd be out in under three years.

I remember a story a few years back where some savage broke into the bottom floor of an apartment, raped a woman, and had her 8 year old son "Help" in the rape. Rapist got 3 years with time already served taken off the 3. Lovely justice system. Makes the US look 'Stern'.
