The accused, who was 19 at the time of the offence in , admitted that he had sex with the girl without her consent at the foot of a Housing Board block in Pasir Ris, while his co-accused, then 18, held her head. The latter is charged with attempted rape and sexual assault by penetration but his case is still pending. Seven other charges, including one each for sexual assault by penetration and one for abetment of attempted rape, will be considered when he is sentenced. The two youths, who worked as waiters at the time, are not named due to a gag order barring the publication of information that can lead to the identification of the victim, who is a Singapore permanent resident. The High Court heard that the girl befriended a group of four youths in and hung out with them at various locations in Pasir Ris. In the early hours of Oct 17, , the girl, the accused and another friend played a game of Truth or Dare at the void deck of a block in the neighbourhood. She became increasingly intoxicated as she had to drink some beer each time she refused to answer the questions posed by the other two. As the group left the block, the accused and another youth took turns to piggyback the girl as she was too drunk to walk properly. At about 4am, the two accused youths waited for the girl when she stopped to relieve herself at the foot of a block, and became separated from the other two youths who had walked ahead. The pair tried to rouse the victim, and when she did not respond, they touched her breasts and sexually violated her.

TORONTO — A teenage girl who was in and out of consciousness and had vomited on herself was too drunk to consent to unprotected sex with another intoxicated teen at a beach party last year, a Toronto judge said in finding the boy guilty of sexual assault. Both teens had been drinking with friends for some time and had kissed briefly that April night, and the boy, who was 15 at the time, testified the girl then asked him to have sex with her by some rocks, according to court documents. She, on the other hand, recalled little of the evening and only learned what happened through text messages and social media the next morning, the documents said. Friends testified during trial that the girl, who was 14 at the time, was drunk to the point of having difficulty walking and talking, with one friend expressing concern she would choke on her own vomit, it said.
While this is an emotional experience for parents, it is important that you support your child through the situation. And this is definitely a time when there are good and bad ways to respond as a parent. Here's how to deal with a drunk child or teenager, and get it right. But it is important to stay calm and in control of yourself while you are dealing with him. Your child is in a vulnerable state, both physically and mentally, and despite the fact that you may be angry with him, he needs your care and concern at this time. However, if your child has drunk more alcohol than his body can handle, he may be at risk of alcohol poisoning. You can also check with his companions or the party or drinking establishment where he was drinking to get an idea of how much he has consumed. Be aware that most people underestimate how much alcohol they have consumed, especially in home-poured drinks.
Metrics details. Underage drinking is widespread, but studies on alcohol-related sexual victimization among teenage girls are almost non-existent. Research on individual correlates and risk factors of sexual victimization more generally is also meager. This study focuses on sexual assault while incapacitated due to drunkenness among 15—18 year-old girls and examines how age, drinking behavior, impulsivity and involvement in norm-violating activities are associated with such victimization experiences. In addition to bivariate associations, adjusted odds ratios and relative risks of incapacitated sexual assault ISA were estimated. Further, population-attributable fractions were calculated to explore how the prevalence of ISA victimization was likely to be affected if effective preventive measures were targeted solely at high-risk groups. The proportion of victims decreased by age within the group that had been intoxicated, reflecting that the youngest girls were more likely to get severely drunk.
