When a woman engages in consensual sex with another adult, it does not mean she has a death wish
It’s good to see that John Broadhurst has lost his appeal to have reduced the sentence of three years and eight months he was given for the manslaughter by negligence of his partner, Natalie Connolly. Connolly suffered 40 separate injuries, including serious internal trauma, and died as she lay at the bottom of stairs.
This case was also notable for being part of what appears to be a growing legal trend for “rough sex” being used as part of a defence plea. Generally, it is claimed that the female victims demand consensual rough sex, dying accidentally as a result. It’s happening in the ongoing, harrowing Grace Millane case in Auckland, where the accused claims that the backpacking British 21-year-old asked to be choked during sex.
