Son who had sex with disabled mum jailed//

A MAN who had sex with his wheelchair-bound mother because he said no other women wanted him has been jailed.

The 26-year-old man moved from Western Australia in February this year to live with his mother in Darwin.

On May 29, they were watching television when he told her: "Why don't women want me. I can't get no women here," the Northern Territory Supreme Court was told.

The son then pulled his mother's pants down, took a condom out of his wallet, and had sex with her.

They had sex again before the mother got into her wheelchair and went to her bedroom.

The woman - who suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and has been dependent on a wheelchair for the past seven years - told her doctor about the incident the following day and the man was arrested.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of having sex with a person knowing that the person was his mother.

In the Northern Territory Supreme Court in Darwin today, Justice Sally Thomas sentenced the man, who cannot be named, to three years in prison with a non-parole period of six months.

Backdated to the time of his arrest, it means he is eligible for parole before the end of this month.

Justice Thomas said the mother had felt "betrayed, lost, lonely and very upset".

But she said the son, who was drunk at the time of the offence, was "extremely remorseful".

She said the fact that he had been raised by his father in Western Australia meant the two did not share "a normal mother-child bond".

The case is the first of its kind in the Northern Territory.

The case is the first of its kind in the Northern Territory, but I'd bet it would be a different story in Tasmania

Yeah, though Tasmania is more likely to be your sister or very close cousin.

Seriously, all bets are off in NT, it's the place that sensibility (and most people) forgot.

With all our best players off in other countries coaching it's no wonder. It's definitely going to be a interesting season.

Ted Kenna, the last surviving Australian winner of the Victoria Cross in World War II, died last night.

Mr Kenna earned his honour for an encounter with the Japanese near Wewak, New Guinea, on May 15, 1945, while serving as a private with the 2nd/4th Australian Infantry Battalion.

In the New Guinea action, an Australian attack had been stopped by heavy Japanese fire. Private Kenna, in a support section, was prevented from bringing his gun to bear on an enemy machine-gun bunker because of the nature of the ground.

He immediately stood in full view of the Japanese and engaged the bunker with a Bren gun, a rifle when the Bren ran out of ammunition, then a Bren again. The Japanese machine-gunners were only 50 metres away and bullets passed between the Australian's arms and body, without hitting him.

Mr Kenna continued to fire at the enemy until his ammunition was exhausted. He then discarded his Bren gun, called for his 303 rifle and, despite intense machine-gun fire, killed the enemy gunner with his first round.

When a machine-gun opened up on him from a second position, Mr Kenna, still standing, killed the gunner with his next round. The bunker was captured without further loss, the company attack went forward and the enemy position was carried.

The citation for his VC declared: "There is no doubt that the success of the company attack would have been seriously endangered and many casualties sustained but for Private Kenna's magnificent courage and complete disregard for his own safety."

Three weeks after the attack, Mr Kenna was taking part in a similar operation when he was hit in the mouth by an explosive bullet and evacuated. He was given the last rites twice before recovering.

His nurse at Heidelberg Military Hospital, Victoria, was Marjorie Rushberry. She nursed him for nearly a year and they married in 1947.

Mr Kenna went to London for the Queen's coronation in 1953 and was presented to her when she visited the newly-restored Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra in 2000. He appeared on a postage stamp in that year.

His wife, Marje, survives him, with their three children.
