A mother of Australia, blamed childhood abuse for sexually assaulting her own son.

A Queensland court heard that the mother suffered horrendous abuse as a child, but the judge said that it was no excuse for the way she treated her son.

The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two counts of incest in the Brisbane District Court.

She was sentenced to up to five years in prison. She will also undergo psychiatric treatment.

The court heard that the woman suffered extraordinary severe discipline at the hands of her stepfather, who raped and impregnated her.

The woman gave birth to her stepfather’s son who has special needs.

Judge Julie Dick said that the woman’s childhood was “sad and dysfunctional, but it does not excuse her behavior towards her own son.”
