Ok- I know what you thinking- this must be a slanderous headline?
Well no- technically this is exactly what has happened , and is merely a sign of the times in New Zealand's justice system
Let's look at the facts:
NZ: Teen 'buys' his way out of sex conviction (Southland)
Judge Kevin Phillips charges the man $10,000 for under age sex with local girl. Presumably because the sex offender was from a 'good family'. Or the son of a mate of old Kev's maybe? Come on down to Queenstown folks- bring your perverted children, just $10,000 for a little bit of underage sex - plus court costs and legal fees.
Unbelievable isn't it.
Judge Kevin Phillips was once a lawyer in the region of course and would know a good opportunity when he sees one.
But how do Queenstown locals feel about old Judge Kev charging just $10,000 for statutory rape?
Bit cheap, or about right?
Any other parents out there keen?
$10,000 would buy a whole bundle of bungy jumps, or a season pass even....kids going cheap in Queenstown thanks to old Uncle Kev. Roll on up!
I guess old Uncle Kev just never got the memo- that he is funded by tax payers to uphold the laws of the Nation so as keep people and their families safe - not to negotiate the terms for the sexual abuse of children.
One wonders how many other children this pervert might go on to abuse - safe in the knowledge that his wealthy parents, and the NZ judges have got his back.....
Judge Kevin Phillips selling Otago children's innocence for $10,000 a pop, in direct contradiction to the laws of the Nation he is paid to uphold.
"We are going to continue to support our daughter as she tries to put this behind her."
"The mother said they had conceded to police laying a lesser charge to prevent their daughter being victimised by the court [by Judge Kevin Phillips].
"It could be that part of this kid's problem is that he thinks he is entitled to take whatever he wants and there are no consequences, that mummy and daddy will fix it."
Again we all weep as the judiciary we fund promotes crime and debauchery and protects the criminals.
Picture - Judge Kevin Phillips playing dress up at a party for the well to do in Queenstown - where child abuse is priced and sold by the judiciary, while ignoring the actual law they are paid to uphold. judge-kevin-phillips.jpg
