Ski board girl to go on trial for assault
Australian teenager Sarah Ries is to go to trial for assaulting a friend who was trying to ski board off a ski board in southern Australia last year.
Sarah, who has a young family, had been skiing with her sister and friend in their rented ski board when they got into an argument over her behaviour.
Sarah and the woman she was arguing with got into a heated argument.
The woman was left with a bruised knee, broken cheekbone and a broken cheek.
Sarah was sentenced to six months’ community service.
“I did not know it was going to be a trial,” Sarah told the ABC.
“At the time, I just felt that it was wrong.
I had been drinking alcohol and I didn’t know that it could cause so much harm.”
The incident has been described as a “hate crime” by Sarah’s mother.
“She was drunk and swearing at my child,” Sarah’s sister said.
Sarah’s parents and sister have also spoken out about the case. “
This is a victim blaming thing and it’s just really upsetting.”
Sarah’s parents and sister have also spoken out about the case.
“It’s not just my sister,” Sarah said.
Sarah’s brother said he had been in contact with her father about the incident.
“We talked about it and he said it was his fault and it was because he didn’t push her off the ski board,” he said.
“I think he’s been very supportive and has tried to put things behind him.”
Sarah said she did not have any remorse for what happened and would not apologise to the woman.
“You don’t do that to anybody, you just don’t,” Sarah added.
“If you do something like that, I don’t blame you.”
Sarah and her sister are due to appear in court on December 10.
