News Briefs: Aussies convicted

The Siem Reap provincial court convicted two Australian nationals of debauchery on

January 29. Bart Lauwaert was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and Clint Betterridge

got ten years. Both men were arrested last August after they were accused of sexually

abusing underage girls who they hired to clean their homes. The two men, who worked

as English teachers and are in their mid-thirties, were also ordered to pay $2,000

to their victims.
