DJ Tim Westwood accused of sex with a 14-year-old

Julie Bindel points out that the word is “rape.”

DJ Tim Westwood is facing allegations from a woman who says they had sex several times starting when she was 14. She says Mr Westwood was in his 30s at the time and describes him as a “predator”.

The woman is one of several to come forward after an investigation by BBC News and the Guardian, with claims of misconduct and abuse dating from 1990 to 2020. Mr Westwood did not respond to a request for comment.

It is illegal in the UK to have sex with a 14-year-old.

In other words it’s statutory rape. It’s not “having sex with.”
