A Sydney brothel owner who prostituted a 14-year-old girl has been given a suspended jail sentence and a good behaviour bond. Jennifer Weatherstone, 50, was convicted of two counts of causing a child to participate in child prostitution in 2011.
The court heard the teenager, known as “Charlie”, went to police on her first night working at the brothel after she was asked to have unprotected sex with a 75-year-old man. She said she’d run away from home and claimed Weatherstone had offered her a job without asking her age.
Weatherstone, who owns the Sparkling Chandeliers brothel in Sydney’s notorious Kings Cross, disputed the girls claims, telling the court she thought the girl looked least 19, that she’d found a Facebook page which listed the girls age as 24 and that the girl had first presented herself drunk.
Some would argue that in handing down a suspended sentence, the Judge issued an overtly light punishment for such a heinous crime, the maximum sentence for child prostitution is 14 years in prison :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia’s First ‘Revenge Porn’ Law
Australia’s most livable state, Victoria has modified existing sexting legislation to outlaw “revenge porn,” making it the first on the continent-down-under to criminalize the new form of cyber harassment.
The forthcoming law will make it an offense to take part in “non-consensual sexting;” i.e., deliberately sending explicit pictures of someone that isn’t yourself. Penalties for those who break the new law haven’t been finalised.
The laws have been through several drafts, including amendments added to protect minors – who post nude photos to one another – from being hit with child pornography charges.
Revenge porn first kicked off in 2010 with the launch of isanyoneup.com, a submission based porn site started by Hunter Moore. The site was a massive hit, dragging in hundreds of thousand of dollars in advertising revenue and attracting 30 million pageviews a month :: NSFW!
