Would a male sex offender get off so lightly?

Stuff reports:

A woman sentenced for doing indecent acts on a child tried to persuade a where her home detention should be served.

The woman was sentenced to seven-and-a-half months’ home detention for three charges of an indecent act on a child.

The maximum sentence is ten years. Home detention is a very light sentence.

Judge McIlraith said there were aggravating factors at the time of the offending, including the abuse of  involved, the number of incidences that took place and and the nature of the acts performed.

Yet still got home detention.

The woman’s parents appeared in in support of their daughter, has permanent name suppression.

is the really appalling part. Unless the is to protect the victims (and there is no indication it is), then why has she not been named?
