A teenager who lured a 15-year-old girl to a hotel room and raped her was using tactics employed by many men wishing to date a woman, a defence barrister said yesterday. Choi Chun-sing, 17, tricked the victim by pretending he would return a compact-disc player she had lent him. When his advances were rejected he trapped her in the room, held a paper cutter to her neck, smothered her face with a blanket and raped her. Finny Chan, defending, told the judge the attack was not premeditated. He said: 'There have been many occasions when men may use an excuse to date a girl.' But Deputy Judge Wesley Wong Wing-fai told him: 'If he wanted to date the girl, why didn't he ask her to go to a movie instead of tempting her to a hotel room where blue movies were shown?' Choi wept as he was jailed for three years and four months after pleading guilty to rape. It had been his first sexual experience, said Mr Chan. They played cards and watched films and then Choi began fondling her waist. When she pushed him away he locked the door and kissed and fondled her while passing a paper cutter from hand to hand.
