What would you do if this poor girl was your daughter? What would you do if your son was involved?

This is just such a heart breaking story to read but it contains an important message.  Why won’t our beautiful children learn that alcohol in excess never ends in anything good?

Here’s the story so far …

A teenager, who was allegedly gang raped while intoxicated, cried and asked for her mother to be called after being found in a dishevelled state in a room with four boys, a Sydney court has heard.

The girl’s former friend told the trial on Tuesday that a group of boys in the doorway of the room laughed when she asked: ‘Where is (the 15-year-old)?’, reports Daily Mail.

She said there were two boys still in the room when she entered and her friend’s tights and underwear were ‘dishevelled’.

The boys were aged 17, 18 and 16 at the time.

‘I need to go home, I need to go home, someone ring my mum,’ the then 15 year old victim said, according to the witness in her evidence at the Downing Centre District Court.

The attacked occurred at a party in the Blue Mountains in 2012.

The friend giving evidence on Tuesday, who was 16 and drunk at the time of the alleged attack, admitted her memory of the night was ‘patchy’ and that she talked to two other former friends about the night’s events before testifying.

Crown prosecutor Belinda Baker has previously said the jury would hear the victim was told ‘shut up, you love it slut’ during the alleged assault.

Another witness said four youths were in the room as he stood in the doorway for a few minutes.

The case continues.

We recently shared a story from a mum who was horrified to find her son collapsed in the front garden after drinking with mates at school.

She urged parents to educate their teenagers about peer pressure and urged them to show the photos of her son Chase to reveal the effects of alcohol poisoning. (see the story here)

She begs parents, “We need to educate our teens that it is okay not to fit in, be different & have our own identities. We don’t need to impress anyone, be yourself and you will find the right friends, not the most popular ones. You do not need to be in the popular group at school to be successful once you are no longer in school.”

Recent research has shown that 75% of 12-17 year olds admit to having tried alcohol.

We can’t imagine how this girl and her family have carried on.  So scary and could happen so easily. Please Mums, talk to your teens over and over and over. They are precious and need to know that things like this happen.

Teach them that they must TRUST the people they are with so they know they won’t just run off and leave them if something were to happen. Don’t go silly just because everyone else is and most importantly RING mum or dad if you need. No matter what the time is or what the situation may be. How bad can the punishment be? We would prefer you alive!

  • What a horrible situation and so sad that this girl has to live with that the rest of her life. Underage drinking seems so common but I think people forget how serious it is. Horrible that it happened but I hope it encourages people to talk with their kids and be open about life.

  • This is awful. The poor girl, it makes me feel sick to think that boys could do this to a young girl, being drunk has nothing to do with it, there is nothing to excuse the fact that they raped her!

  • Where were the parents/guardians of the teenager whose house the party was held at? Did they know what was happening?

  • Regardless of what anyone wears and what anyone drinks it is NEVER EVER acceptable to abuse verbally or physically or rape another person. I hope the law shows no mercy in these cases as none is shown to the victims that have a lifetime of recovery to endure. Sickening beyond belief!!

  • The boys actions were atrocious, it’s sickening to read. It confirms to me that young girls need to not drink alcohol while out. It makes them more susceptible to acts such as these.

  • But why do boys think it’s ok?

  • In my opinion, aside from counselling, the best way for this girl to begin healing is to see her attackers pay for what they did, both criminally and civilly. Witnesses need to do the right thing and speak out. The rapists should be made examples of so that other boys in the same situation know they will not get away with sexual assault. They should also be made to pay monetarily to the victim (even through their parents) so that even the boys’ parents get taught a lesson for not teaching their sons decency and respect towards women. Alcohol or not – NO MORE EXCUSES.
    My heart goes out to this young girl and I hope she is able to move on from this ordeal.


    • Absolutely agree with you. What they did is atrocious and letting those boys pay is the right thing to do.

  • Poor girl, what an awful experience. I hope that in the 5 years that have passed since the incident she’s has been able to find the support and council she needed and found inner healing of her wounds. And I hope that in the 5 years that have passed the attackers have come to the insight that that what they have done was so very wrong.
    I would be devastated when my daughter would be the victim. And I would be just as devastated when my son would be one of the attackers. The love for our children doesn’t change upon their poor choices. My heart goes out to the victim and her family and the attackers and their families.
    Alcohol and drugs can cause so much destruction indeed ! May we find the words, the example and the wisdom to teach and educate our kids on this.

  • :-( I can’t even imagine how I would feel if that was my daughter. Poor little angel.
    And if one of the boys was my child.. I would feel I failed as parent. So devastating. :-(
