THE distraught husband of a woman who flew to Australia to have sex with a 15-year-old Bendigo boy she met online says he still loves her.

Case, 36, pleaded guilty this week in the Bendigo County Court to two counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16 and placed on the sex offenders register for life.

If she was a male there’d be an international outcry about another evil man taking advantage of an innocent child. Perhaps the US justice system will deal with her in a more appropriate manner than the hypocritical Australian justice system?

At least the rockspider will be affected in some way when she gets home as, “the park rules are pretty strict.”
