Problem question :-

Angela and Boris have been in a relationship for several years. Initially, Angela was happy to have found a partner who helped her overcome the trauma of her previous relationship where she was often sexually assaulted by her then-partner. With time however Angela and Boris’s relationship started to change and Boris started sexually to assault Angela (i.e. having sex with her without her consent) Angela consulted a lawyer who told her that if she wants to get rid of Boris from her life she could make a complaint with the police because it is clear that Boris is committing a serious indictable offence (i.e. sexual assault under section 61I of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW)) for which he could spend 14 years in jail. Angela cannot bring herself to make a complaint to the police, despite the sexual assaults becoming more frequent and more traumatic to her.
