Woman groped by man fined for slapping him in the face
IS it right that the 23-year-old woman who slapped a man in the face after he goosed her backside has been convicted of assault? The 27-year-old who grabbed her backside walked away with no stain on his character.
Says the 23-year-old woman:
“This goes to show that it’s okay for guys to grab girls any way they want.”
Well, not quite. The law might be an ass, but the man who groped her buttocks at Glorias nightclub in Lund, Sweden, suffered a broken nose.
Lund District Court said that the woman was the victim of “serious provocation”, but ruled that her actions went beyond simple self-defence.
She gets a suspended sentence and a 2,500 kronor (£250, $380) fine. But the part that might stick in the craw is that she must pay the groper 1,860 kronor in damages. He had been demanding 25,000 kronor as compensation.
Maybe she should have just broken his fingers?
