The Australian Army are investigating a soldier accused of dating his ex-partner’s teenage daughter. Hollie Burns’ mother (the ex-partner) made a complaint to the Australian Defence Force about her 17 year old daughter’s relationship with 45 year old Private Scott Murphy. The ADF investigated Murphy’s relationship with the girl, along with his nudist lifestyle. A senior army officer said that “the behviour was unbecoming of the 9 army values and for conservative members of the Military this would not be supported”. “The ADF does not support this kind of behaviour and you should question your relationship and living conditions with Hollie” he added. The ADF, however, are not taking disciplinary action because Murphy told them they weren’t having sex. Um, do you think that he may be lying?? Unfortunately, there’s no way to prove it, unless the girl falls pregnant to the creep. Or if they find evidence of sexual activity such as condoms.
The mother said her ex was triple her daughter’s age and had children who were older than Hollie. So why doesn’t Hollie just date this guy’s kids instead of her mother’s sloppy seconds? When A Current Affair rocked up, Murphy denied that he was dating her, but his lies were uncovered when Facebook messages popped up of him referring to Hollie as his girlfriend *yuck*. He also covered his head and ran away like a chickenshit little bitch when confronted by reporters. A member of the nudist colony that Murphy attends also said that they presented as a couple and that it was quite off-putting. So he knows it’s wrong to take advantage of a young girl, hence the lies and the running away.
This is clearly a case of a bad boyfriend taking advantage of his (ex) girlfriend’s child. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’d started showing an interest in her while he was dating her mum. Or that he only dated her mum to get to her daughter. Either way, this is incredibly poor form and illegal if it turns out that they are having sex (couldn’t imagine that they’re not). The age of consent in Australia is 16, but only if the older person is no more than 2 years older than the younger. Otherwise it’s 18. Considering that this girl is 17 and this guy is 45, this is a predator preying on a young and vulnerable victim.
