Lower Austria: 42-year-old woman loves 14-year-old boy

An unusual couple had to stand trial yesterday in the Lower Austrian court of Wiener Neustadt.

The 42-year-old woman, a professional handball coach, explained that there is a true love between her and him. She accepted the punishment and left the court hand in hand with her now 14-year-old boyfriend. The relationship and the sexual intercourse started several months too early.
