    Default Australian Jailed over 12-year-old Daughter's 'Marriage' to Lebanese Man

    Australian Jailed over 12-year-old Daughter's 'Marriage' to Lebanese Man

    An Australian man who consented to an Islamic "marriage" ceremony between his 12-year-old daughter and a Lebanese man more than twice her age was Friday jailed for at least six years.
    The 63-year-old father, who cannot be named to protect the girl's identity, was found guilty in April of procuring a child under the age of 14 for unlawful sexual activity and encouraging the pair to have intercourse despite denying the charges.
    "(The man) failed in his duty to his daughter," Judge Deborah Sweeney said during sentencing at the Downing Center District Court in Sydney.
    The court had earlier heard that he wanted to save the girl from what he considered the sin of having sex outside marriage so when she reached puberty he decided she should wed.
    When a 26-year-old Lebanese man, in Australia on a student visa, showed interest in her the father consented to a marriage, which was carried out by a local sheikh last year at his home around 250 kilometers (150 miles) north of Sydney.
    On the night of the wedding -- which was not recognized under Australian law -- the pair went to a hotel with the father's permission.
    They had sex there and twice more at the father's home the following weekend.
    During the trial, the court heard the girl was told on the night of the ceremony not to use contraceptive pills or condoms as it was against the religious teachings they followed.
    Sweeney said religious beliefs did not justify what happened.
    "They were linked in the purpose that (the man) would have sex with his daughter," she said.
    The man was sentenced to eight years in prison but will be eligible for parole in November 2020.
    His daughter is now in the care of authorities while the "husband" was jailed for seven-and-a-half years earlier this year for sexual abuse of a child.

    why didn't they arrest the sheikh who married a 12 year old girl as well?

    can you believe this is a normal and acceptable practice in a certain part of the world?

    From what I read previous and This is an old story, the so called sheikh was on a permanent visa and had it revoked and is either deported or going through that process.

    Its a commom practice not olny among muslims! Orthodox jews do it! In many states in United States its still legal marriage at ages like 13yo! Even among maronites its was a common practice in last century! My great grand parents came to Brazil from Lebanon at the ages of 18/12 or 17/11 married!

    " In many states in United States its still legal marriage at ages like 13yo!" In what states is this happening, a quick look says none.
    please if you post ...please ck your facts.
    The Othodox Jew business cannot be true either.
    Cite your sources.
    Who would claim to be that, who was not.

    Practice what you preach, better check facts before you doubt something:

    Kansas and Massachusetts, the age for marriage with consent is 14 for males and 12 for females.

    The minimum age for marriage under Jewish law is 13 for boys, 12 for girl

    That's the law boys and I suppose that's for Orthodox Jews too.

    And since this is the law then the Orthodox bit is phony too with exception to the USA where you people live who can say but in the civilized world these are the facts.
    Who would claim to be that, who was not.

    they also have statuatory rape laws, so if a girl was 14 and a boy was 18, it exceeds the +3 year age difference and it would be considered a statutory rape regardless.

    looking up fadi's example in Kansas:

    http://aspe.hhs.gov/hsp/08/sr/statelaws/statelaws.shtml

    so perhaps one could be married at a young age, but no sexual activity could occur. there are also age limitation.
