Am I missing something here? A man has been found guilty of assault for placing his hand on a woman's knee for two or three minutes during a party game. The man's partner was present and the woman whose knee it was didn't ask him to remove his hand at the time. The initial charge was for sexual assault, but the chap in question pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of assault. www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-41503393
I suppose the other question is what kind of people get involved in this kind of childish behaviour? I imagine this is another of those cases, like the one about the young medical student at Oxford, that if we knew all the facts we may see in a slightly different light.
Thank goodness Baggs - I've read and re-read several accounts, but it really does seem to be as simple as it seems. Even at fourteen years old, as a very shy teenager, when a man I babysat for took me home in his car and put his hand on my knee, I said nothing, but simply removed it.
