A JUDGE has slammed claims a man sexually abused a former girlfriend’s 10-year-old daughter because the child had approached him.Appearing at Bendigo County Court, Miguel Suparo, 47, was sentenced to three years’ jail for single counts of sexual penetration and performing an indecent act before a child under 16.Speaking outside of court, the victim’s mother said she hoped the sentence would bring closure.“I want to walk away from it now, it’s been a very long year.”Suparo told police he had fondled the girl and masturbated in front of her because she had been “sexually precocious”.“You said that she was very sexual, and that she approached you all the time,” Judge Julian Leckie said.“I make it clear that I reject this.“I am somewhat disturbed by your efforts to shift responsibility to the child and her mother,” he said.At a hearing last week, prosecutor Patrick Southey said Suparo had entered into a relationship with the girl’s mother. 225 more words
