Scott Edwards former NSW state boxing champion has been found guilty of 6 counts of aggravated intercourse with a girl aged 10 – 14 years old and faces up to 20 years behind bars.

A former state boxing champion and gym owner Scott Edwards has been found guilty after just 3 hours of jury deliberation of 6 counts of aggravated intercourse with a girl aged 10 – 14 years old. He was found guilty of having sex with her (we feel it should be called rape, considering she was a child at the time of her rape and children cannot give consent and no consent means rape) twice although some news articles suggest he was raping her for years.

What we do know is he has been found guilty by a jury, this is a massive betrayal of trust for the owner of a gym to abuse his position of power in such a horrendous way, we do know these charges need to be re-named. The fact is he was committing a rape, he is a child rapist. Children can not give consent and without consent sexual intercourse is rape. We do know that no 31 year old “man” should be having sex with a child aged 10 – 14 years old !

Edwards is facing up to 20 years behind bars for his crimes, we have no doubt he will be looking at nothing even slightly near that. For some insane reason child rapists don’t do any decent time behind bars, our courts seem to think that sentences are only deterrents for financial crimes not crimes against children.

Whatever sentence Edwards receives, he will be placed on the child sexual abuse register (which isn’t public for some reason) and this will hopefully prevent him from being in a position of power over children again.

We at FACAA hope every child abuser ends up getting the long sentence they deserve, not only to act as a deterrent to others but also because their victims get a life sentence so why shouldn’t they ?
