Hi I work in a reomote community in NT where perpetrators are often invited/able to return to the community and live in the same house with the child that they sexually assaulted.What I see is an anomoly between the community wanting to enforce cultural law/consequences and the reality of the legal system whereby if the community does enforce cultural law, which is in affect corporal punishment, they will then be charged for a serious offence under our legal system. I hear this frustation regularly from local community members, men & women.
