Criminal Court Refrained From Pronouncing Punishment In Consensual Sex Case
Category: Crime News

The Criminal Court refrained from pronouncing punishment against a Kuwaiti citizen who was accused of having consensual sex with his 19-year old girlfriend in university. The court instead demanded him to sign a pledge of good conduct, with financial guarantee, for a period of one year.

According to the case file, investigations revealed that the citizen was involved in an intimate affair with the girl and had consensual sex with her at an undisclosed place. He then took her back to her parents’ house.

However, she was confronted by her father who demanded to know the reason why she came home late. When she revealed the reason, he took her to the police station and filed a case against her boyfriend.

During the court session, the defense counsel Lawyer Ayed Mahdi Al-Rushaidi objected to the contradicting statements of the Criminal Investigations officer and the victim. He stressed that his client had confessed at the Criminal Investigations Department that he is in a relationship with the girl and his intentions are good because he wants to marry her; however, her parents rejected him several times. Lawyer Al-Rushaidi assured that his client will not commit a crime in the future.
