A 19-year-old Norwegian woman both slapped and headbutted a man who grabbed her butt in Grimstad. Now she has been acquitted of the bloody violence by the district court.
The woman was charged with bodily harm and the prosecution claimed that 75 days imprisonment was an appropriate punishment for the violence she had inflicted after a man "put a hand on her butt." But Aust-Agder district court was of a different opinion, writes Agderposten.
The woman admitted in court that she was drunk and that she became angry, but denied that she headbutted the man. However, due to intoxication she did not remember exactly how she reacted. The man, in turn, refused to explain himself in court, possibly because the woman and her father had paid a visit to the man a few days after the alleged incident. After the visit, the man remained quiet.
A central witness, however, confirmed the headbutting and told that blood was pouring out. The court, however, believes that the injury the man had in his nasal bone, could have been there from before, and writes in the verdict that it can not be ruled out that a previous incident could have influenced the amount of power that would have been required to break the nose (again).
The prosecutor now has 14 days to decide whether the acquittal should be appealed. The woman says she is happy that she is now acquitted and hopes that the case can be put to rest.
Per Sandberg, deputy leader of one of Norway's governing parties, recently told that women should just slap men who grabbed their behind, preferably in public where the humiliation would be best. She simply took his advice and added a headbutt.
