Domestic accused of raping boss's son

2012-06-01 08:42

Cape Town - A 24-year-old woman has been accused of raping her boss’s teenaged son.

The Daily Voice reported that the woman had been employed as a domestic worker for a Bergvliet family.

She was fired after her employer found out that she allegedly forced the 15-year-old to have sex with her.

It is not clear how the woman’s alleged sexual assault came to light.

The woman told the court during her bail application that she lived with her grandmother in Macassar and that she had a one-year-old child to look after.

She is facing charges of statutory rape.

      get the facts first, this is very vague, the kid might have been doing this out of his own free will and was caught and the familt are pulling a coverup

      marthelize - 2012-06-01 09:19

      He's 15, which means he is underage. Therefore his consent means nothing and it's still statutory rape. Which means it's still a punishable crime and she can still be convicted. Ignorance of the law is not a defence.

      Zing - 2012-06-01 09:33

      Statutory rape, yes, I agree, maybe. How does a servant say "NO" to the boss' son? A 15 year old boy is not a sweet innocent little angel. If he doesn't testify to mitigate the circumstances she will have a terrible criminal record. And all because he couldn't keep his penis under control. Maybe it was his culture that made him do it . . .

      Fussed - 2012-06-01 09:57

      A relation of the pres by any chance

      zmbova - 2012-06-01 12:39

      There's more to this story, how does a domestic helper approach her boss's son for sexual favours? Really now! Oh maybe, just maybe, he's following on someone's footsteps *wink*. LMAO!!!

      Janice - 2012-06-01 13:52

      I agree with procold!!! She didnt rape him! They had SEX!!!

      Matthew - 2012-06-01 14:17

      This stinks to high hell of Bullsh*t. Sure he was underage etc blah blah blah.but anyone defending the kid.really,you'll blindly defend him,off a report that couldnt be more vague as to the surrounding details? There is OBVIOUSLY a different story to the one we're hearing A 15 year old teenager cant defend himself,or push her away,yet alone just say No.wake up people. something is too fishy about this. my opinion,the teenager (raging with hermones) either black mailed the house keeper into it,got busted by the folks,then made a story to cover up,so he wouldnt be too blame. Its happened before,unlikely that its different here. What house keeper in their right mind would dare even risk her job like that,especially when she's got a child to feed.No no,theres more to this than we are being told.That little bugger is a coward and should take responsibility. (wouldnt surprise me if she was his first,or if she wasnt)

      mikenortje - 2012-06-01 14:35

      Keeping his Penis under control like the Spear. He is under age the law is clear ..... unless you the Spear then you can bully / intimidate / march till the law goes your way.

      rbphiri - 2012-06-01 17:44

      She really knows how to clean up her act, but the story seems one sided, the boy is 15 and not mentally challenged in any manner whatsoever, I think there is more to the story than what meets the eye. Maybe they are both at fault

  • jimmy.setagane - 2012-06-01 08:57

    illustration on statutory rape: this crime is committed when Lee(adult) commits an act of sexual penetration with a child btwn the age of 12-16, where the child has given consent but is too young to engage in consensual. N remember this n other 28 sections of Sex n related offenses are still under review in western cape. Let's Protect children 365 days.

      Deon - 2012-06-01 15:25

      The law makers messed up this law. now it has to be changed.

  • Emile Josephs - 2012-06-01 09:02

    @jimmy i hope that was a joke, otherwise you are a complete MORON! bergvliet is a place.

      Jimmy - 2012-06-01 09:05

      No it wasn't a joke. It could be a name of a place and if that's the case well and good. Its not like are talking about a place where every South African should know.

      yolande.rwaai - 2012-06-01 09:11

      'the woman had been employed as a domestic worker for a Bergvliet family'. Jimmy; I made the same mistake.

      Jimmy - 2012-06-01 09:23

      I re read the article, yes it says A Bergvleit not THE Bergvleit family. But I still insist its not a place we are all supposed to know lol.

      Jeffrey - 2012-06-01 09:49

      Bergvliet is a suburb of Cape Town.

      Matthew - 2012-06-01 14:23

      I lived in bergvliet.down the road from Park N'd be surprised how many things like this i've heard go down in that neighbourhood.

  • Emmanuel - 2012-06-01 09:17

    So what do people say if it was a 15 year old girl with a 24 year old man? Any wise comments?

      Zing - 2012-06-01 09:41

      Not the same. Not even close.

      Cherri - 2012-06-01 11:51

      Why not Zing? You bloody hypocrite!

      Pat - 2012-06-01 13:01

      NO this was the little prince that can only do good! See woman do not always have the same status as men do! Did you not know we living a country where woman just get weak in the knees and fall so a man just have his way with her. It is ja my Master!

      Matthew - 2012-06-01 14:25

      Dont be an idiot.of course its different.

      makanyawuzenkukhu.ediyedwa - 2012-06-01 20:45

      Emmanuel..... with great confidence if there is no obstruction of justice the legislation remains non discriminative ie gender matters not what counts is an evidence to prove beyond reasonable doubts that an offence has been committed [engaging in sexual activity with a minor]. In another words if the family of the girl fully understand how the law of the land can equally protect their girl then obviously the 24 yr old man should account in court for his actions because a 15 yr old cannot give any consent.

      goyougoodthing - 2012-06-02 08:33

      As a guy who was 15 once, it is totally different. Unless the kid is homosexual or the woman looks like a troll, it's not the worst experience a 15 year old boy could dream up.

  • Vincent - 2012-06-01 09:18

    Teens have raging hormones, especially boys...what ever happened... Hope you get a job next door my dear.

  • lyzettemcm - 2012-06-01 09:27

    When do you ever spell it "boss's" ???

      Mya - 2012-06-01 11:17

      When it is plural, ie more than one boss. The boss' daughter vs all the boss's duaghters...

      leigh.ridgway - 2012-06-01 12:35

      Get over yourself woman! Is this article about suspected rape or 'the A-Z of perfect spelling!"

      Bonjo - 2012-06-01 14:18

      Hehehe calm down ladies :-)

      lskosana3 - 2012-06-02 08:42

      Boss's means belonging to the boss (singular), bosses' means belonging to the bosses (plural). Mya go back to 4th grade, along with all those who thumbed you up.

      brenda.yelvertonburns - 2012-06-02 14:36

      Exactly. The plural of boss is bosses. Not that this is a forum for grammar. Would that be grammer?

  • Zing - 2012-06-01 09:29

    OK, all of you who have been teen-age boys at one time suspects how this really happened. Little Johnny abused his position as son of the "master". Statutory rape, though. It's going to be difficult to get around this one, but I hope Johnny at least shares some of the blame.

      Pat - 2012-06-01 13:03

      Zing what is the age I thought it was thirteen in the country now so why then is there such a big age difference if it is a boy!

  • Sulette Behnke - 2012-06-01 09:30

    Lol ok so this is kind of funny. It's sad too but really I think he was involved , 15 is young but he's not stupid, and it's more of a sexual scandal than a rape , you can't force an erection can u?

      Bless Boswell - 2012-06-01 09:34

      The erection is nothing to do with it - as they can happen during fear, excitement even sleep. This should not have happened

      madise.paul - 2012-06-01 09:54

      Bless u can't get an erection when ur angry*fact*. If the employer was a good guardian then he should've noticed the fantasy between the two and advice them not to.

  • Robdbn - 2012-06-01 09:30

    It doesn't matter if the 15 year old kid was doing it willingly. He is underage, therefore the woman is automaticaly guilty of rape.

      Zing - 2012-06-01 10:04

      Did anyone say she was doing it willingly?

      Herman - 2012-06-02 08:10

      That is obviously what she will say in court. But still, it is rape, and i just cannot believe that we have such a society that write such sick comments as i have seen above.

  • Sulette Behnke - 2012-06-01 09:36

    It shouldn't have happened, it did though. And its statutory rape, no doubt but that still leaves a lot of room for willingness on a hormonal 15 year old.

  • domonique2 - 2012-06-01 09:37

    A possibly white boy banging a possibly black women who works for him? i cant believe this happend!! must be the first time in history!! wonder if the sheets were "the color purple", or if she knew his "Roots",

      DieHoekseun - 2012-06-01 12:32

      She's between 22 and 26, the sexiest age for a woman. This thing would happen easily especially if she is coloured.

      Chris - 2012-06-03 05:58

      Was this not the prerogative of the dominee ( sp ) during South Africa dark days?

  • Sulette Behnke - 2012-06-01 09:38

    Would his parents go to court if he was banging his friends mother? Or is it just the scandal of being banged by the "help" ?

      Bafana - 2012-06-01 10:48

      she probably seduced the poor child the took advantage of his innocence , and she is not the only one she is just being unlucky she got caught the are many incidents like this and ppl get away with the murder

    I don't buy it, 15years is young by the law but not by actions, we all passed that age we know what a 15years old boy I mean MAN is capable of, he got cought and he's shifting the blame

  • phathuchicos - 2012-06-01 09:45

    How on earth does a woman/lady able to rape a normal healthy person? seriously...

  • alson.ngoveni - 2012-06-01 09:47

    difficult one for the domestic worker, hyperthetically, if she said no to the boy she will be blackmailed by the boy to his parents, she says yes and she/he is cought, she is in trouble.

      Pat - 2012-06-01 13:06

      Thank you for the very wise words indeed I could imagine what hell this poor woman must of gone through being threatned by an snot nose teenager if she had refused the master his wishes.

    i've heard about quite a few 15 year old "fathers".. so somehow i think the boy is involved.. it would not have been an issue if it had to be his "24"year old girlfriend from Bergvliet.. Unfortunately he chose the maid...

  • veritas.odium.paret - 2012-06-01 10:16

    It's a mission to get it up and keep it in if you're being forced. The more I think about it the more it turns me on. Whoow! lucky boy indeed. I envy him. The case is going nowhere. I should look for the lady and hire her. I'll pay her 3times what she was getting. She will come in handy with her added services.

  • sango.jika - 2012-06-01 11:20

    this boy wanted it as mach as the lady did, as far as i know for junior to wake up you must atleast be thinking about sex. If he was not thinking about it he would have never had an erection. I was once a teen too and had a crush on older woman.
