Came across this horrifying story today…

According to Globalpost.com, an Australian mother has been sentenced to four years in prison for raping her daughter. According to reports, the mother claims that she was teaching her eleven year old daughter “sex education.” 

Judge John Roberts claimed the woman had no reason psychologically to do this to her daughter as the 37 year old woman from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast had a loving and healthy relationship with her own parents. She started seeing the father of her children when she was 14 and was pregnant with her first child by 16. 

It was said that the woman became obsessed with “cyber-sex” before the incidents started taking place. There are also reports that the daughter in question was forced to watch videos online. The daughter was “deprived a loving a wholesome relationship with her mother,” Roberts stated.  “Your conduct toward your daughter involved a serious breach of trust.” The woman had three separate videos accounting the times she raped the youngest of her four children.

The woman’s main defense was that she was giving her daughter a form of sex education and received no carnal satisfaction from the events. The judge replied to this defense by saying, “You were obsessed with sex and your life was in chaos.”

The mother has already served 243 days in custody. She is expected to serve another 122 days before release will be made. Once released, the woman is expected to serve three years on probation.  Judge Roberts reports that while rape by mothers is uncommon, this shocking event will have punishment.

Serious breach of trust? That doesn’t begin to cover it! There are videos of this woman raping her child. If that’s not enough to lock her up and throw away the key, I don’t know what would be. And this monster will be out of jail soon, serving probation. Fucking sickening.
