What’s the life of a man worth in New Zealand?

The Department of Corrections has been ordered to pay a record (!) $172,000 to the family of Robert Charles Ian Cave who was fatally crushed by a log while doing community work on June 7, 2014.

“Corrections was ordered to pay reparations of $155,000 for emotional harm to Cave’s family, and a further $17,471.12 to the Cave’s father for financial losses.”

The judgement was entered by Chief District Court Judge Jan-Marie Doogue at a hearing in the Nelson District Court on Wednesday, according to a report.

[It’s unclear how the authorities reconcile the fact that families of selected Christchurch Earthquake victims received millions of dollars in compensation, while the reparation to  Cave family was a measly $172,000. Moderator]

National Figure Guilty of Child Molestation

National figure guilty of indecent assaults: Jury

A man said to be a “prominent national figure” has been found guilty of sexually molesting a teenage girl.

A jury at Nelson District Court today found the man guilty of  indecently assaulting a teenage girl in 2009.

The court has awarded him name suppression to prevent any potential financial harm.

The jury took 14 hours to find the man guilty of all charges after a three-day hearing, the Nelson Mail reported.

The Crown alleged he indecently assaulted the girl by touching her breasts at a Nelson house in December 2009.

He further assaulted her on the same night by rubbing her leg, touching her genitalia and kissing her on the back.

The defence maintained the incidents never happened.
