On Sunday mornings the family slept in, as I think many New Zealand families do. Your daughter got into bed with you. Your son got into bed with your wife, and the children would listen to stories, I think in those days they were on the National Radio – children’s stories. On many occasions over a period of about six or seven months on these Sunday mornings, while your daughter was in your bed, you put your fingers onto her vagina and fondled it. One Sunday morning you tried to put your fingers inside her vagina. The representative charge of indecent assault arises from those incidents.
On a different occasion you placed your daughter’s hand onto your erect penis and made her hold it. Because that was different and more serious offending, the Crown laid a separate charge of indecent assault.
The charge of attempted rape results from the occasion that you have heard your daughter and your son describe, in more graphic terms than I can. It was the occasion when, on a Saturday morning in her bedroom, you attempted to put your penis into her vagina, and while that was happening your eight year old son came into the bedroom. Although you asked your son to leave, and he did, fortunately the incident ended.
