A PUB drinker sexually assaulted a woman — by putting a pal’s hand on her bum and thigh.

As she objected, Liam Moon, 28, sneered: “What are you going to do? We can do what we want.”

He first made a lewd comment about her rear in a bar. CCTV caught him molesting her as they met at a second venue in St Aubin, Jersey.

Prosecutor Chris Baglin told a court: “Moon takes his friend’s arm/wrist, touches the top of her thigh, before moving the arm on and over the bottom, over her trousers.”

Moon, of Bellozanne, got 90 hours’ community service for indecent assault and must sign the sex offenders’ list.

JP Peter Harris said use of his pal’s hand was “an aggravating factor as you put them at risk”.
