Woman abused as child guilty of sex with teenage boys

A WOMAN found out her abuser from when she was six-years-old was dealt with in 1999, hours before she faced court for her own child sex charges.

The 21-year-old woman pleaded guilty in the Rockhampton District Court to 12 counts of indecent treatment of a child under 16 in care, one of carnal knowledge, and seven of indecent treatment of a child under 16.

The charges were in relation to two victims, over the course of three nights each, in 2011 in a Central Queensland town.

The court heard the woman and her victims - both aged 13 - carried out a variety of sexual acts including oral sex, masturbation and "dry humping" (the act of sexual intercourse will all clothes on).

The matters were reported to police two years after the incidents by the woman's step-father.

The court heard yesterday the woman had been sexually abused by a family member when she was six, then her parents split and her mother entered a relationship with her step-father.

The court also heard the woman had not been in contact with her mother (since she was 17) until recently and that the step-father had constantly talked about sex with her while she was growing up, knowing she had been abused, and had propositioned her.

Defence lawyer Jeff Clarke said up until yesterday morning, his client had been una

ware any complaints had been made about the abuse she suffered when she was a child, but learnt the man had been dealt with through the courts.

Judge Paul Smith sentenced the woman to three years probation for the first 12 charges, a six-month prison term suspended after 34 days (already served) for the carnal knowledge charge and 120 hours community service for the final seven charges.

Judge Smith referred to the first boy as the 'protagonist' in the situation after the boy kissed the woman first and provided the condom when they had sex. "You were pushed (into it) by being told one of the defendants had a crush on you," he said.
