Sydney, June 30 (ANI): A British woman who breached a noisy sex Asbo has avoided being sent to jail yet again.
Caroline Cartwright, 49, who was in court again for breaching an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo), had been banned from "shouting, screaming or vocalisation" during romps with her husband Steve, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
And even though their lovemaking, described as "murder" and "unnatural", drowns out their neighbours' televisions, Cartwright says the Asbo is a breach of her human rights.
But she admitted to two charges of breaching the Asbo at her home in Hall Road at Newcastle Crown Court on June 29.
The court heard that her neighbour Rachel O'Connor called the police after hearing Cartwright shouting and screaming for 10 minutes during lovemaking on the morning of March 14 this year.
The next day O'Connor's partner Vince Wilson also called police after the defendant could be heard singing at the top of her voice to dance music blasting out from her terraced house.
The court was told police officers, who attended the neighbours' flat, heard 20 minutes of loud music and singing before arresting Cartwright.
At the hearing prosecutor Penny Moreland explained that when Cartwright breached the notice five times she was made subject of an anti-social behaviour order in April last year.
Moreland said in January this year Cartwright received an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, after admitting three charges of breaching the Asbo.
Christopher Rose, defending, said Cartwright had caused herself great hardship because of her behaviour.
Recorder Jeremy Freedman told Cartwright that only her guilty pleas had saved her from the eight-week suspended prison term that was hanging over her.
He imposed a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, and a one-year supervision order. (ANI)
