An advocacy group for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence has described new consent laws passed by NSW parliament as a “huge” step forward. Under the reforms, consent will need to be verbally or physically communicated before sex. The government said the change would simplify sexual consent laws and ensure more effective prosecutions of sexual assault offences.
NSW Police said a 64-year-old man was left in a serious condition after his wallet, keys and car were allegedly stolen in Blacktown just after 2am yesterday.
