Now, 70-year-old Robert Andrew Fiddes Ellis of Melbourne, Australia, has been sentenced to serve 15 years in prison after being convicted of sexual abuse in connection with the sexual assault of 11 young girls in Bali.
In addition to the prison sentence, he was also given a fine of $153,000. According to the police investigation, Ellis left Melbourne and went to Bali, in order to engage in sexual acts with young girls.
Over the course of two years, Ellis lured 11 girls, aged between 7 and 17, to his home, where he gave them baths.
Ellis admitted having sex with the girls, but claimed he should not be punished because he gave them a large amount of money in exchange for the baths.
He also told the court that the girls do not want him to be in prison.
