The Herald reports:
A woman who had sex with her nine-year-old son feels disgusted by her actions and blames a “cocktail of medication”, her lawyer has told a court.
The 48-year-old on Thursday cried in the dock of Sydney’s Downing Centre District Court where she sat beside her husband, 57, who has also pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the boy.
The couple, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are facing sentencing for the offences against their son, which occurred between January and November 2009.
Some of the offences include streaming footage of the sex acts online.
However, crown prosecutor Craig Everson said there was no evidence before the court to show the woman was taking any medication at the time of the offences.
So one can’t blame it on the panadol after all.
