A 20-year-old woman in Australia had sex with four teenage boys.
But that's not all- she walked away free after being handed a suspended prison sentence.
Laura O'Donnell, 20, pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual penetration with a child under 16 and five counts of committing an indecent act with a child under 16, reported Perth.com.au.
She plied the boys, aged 12, 15, and two aged 14, with alcohol on three separate occasions.
The first two involved one victim and the third, all four.
O'Donnell, who trained to be a childcare worker, also assaulted the boys while drunk between February and June last year in Ballarat .
Judge Sue Pullen wholly suspended O'Donnell's two-year, five-month sentence and placed her on an 18-month community-based order despite her also previously breaching a similar order for an attempted robbery.
The judge attributed her offending to a troubled background, low self-esteem and alcohol abuse.
Crime Victims Support Association president Noel McNamara said the sentence was a disgrace.
"If it was a man on those charges it would have been a different story," he said.
