Australian jailed to 10 years over British backpacker rape

An Australian man who kidnapped and repeatedly raped a British backpacker during a month long ordeal has been jailed for 10 years. Marcus Martin had pleaded guilty to charges of rape and deprivation of liberty against the 22-year-old Liverpool woman. The pair met in Cairns in January 2017 and had begun a relationship. When the relationship soured, Martin subjected the woman to physical abuse.

10 years for a brutal kidnapping, rape and battery? 8 when he serves 80%. Something is seriously wrong with the Justice system.

How about life and castration? My country's laws are some of the weakest in the world. An absolutely embarrassment, I am so sorry to this lady.
