Craig Francis Neroj
In October 2006, the appellant, then aged 36, went to the home of the 15 year old victim. She was there with her friend, also 15 years old, a 24 year old boarder and a two year old child. The victim and her friend ate dinner while the appellant was in the lounge with them, drinking bourbon. Shortly afterwards, the boarder left the house.
 The appellant began play fighting with the victim’s friend, pinning her to the couch by her shoulders. The victim, feeling uncomfortable, left the room. The appellant followed her, embraced her, kissed her and touched her breasts. He held the victim on the ground. She escaped his grip but he pursued her around the house, trying to touch her, hug her and kiss her. He put a $20 note into her bra. He attempted to put his hand down her pants on more than one occasion.
 In the victim’s bedroom, he grabbed the victim by her right wrist and forced her hand into his pants. The appellant put his hand inside the victim’s pants several times, touching her vagina. During this part of the assault, the appellant briefly inserted his finger into her vagina.
