Coronavirus drives down CQ sex prices and safety
Sex workers who service the CQ region report that regular clients are taking advantage of the downturn in business to drive down both prices and professional standards. Joanne, who regularly travels the Queensland coast between Bundaberg and Townsville, said there are still customers calling, but she's grounded herself at a friend's place for the foreseeable future. She was in Rockhampton until "a few days ago" and, soon after she left, heard local motel owners were turfing the travelling workers out. The manager of a South Rockhampton motel, who chose not to be named, said she has seen a downturn is clients from all walks of life, but has not declined any bookings to sex workers in particular. Sex worker JJ, who lives and works from home in the Rockhampton suburbs, said she's a week away from bankrupt with pets to feed and bills to pay.
CHILD sex allegations against a Central Queensland pair are so horrific the prosecutors will be asking for a life in prison sentence for the main offender. The case was heard in the Supreme Court in Rockhampton today where Crown prosecutor Tiffany Lawrence presented the indictment which contained over charges, including two counts of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child. Child sex offences - which can include charges such as rape, indecent treatment of children, maintaining a sexual relationship with a child, possessing child exploitation material, making child exploitation material or distributing child porn - are usually dealt with in the District Court due to the maximum terms of imprisonment set out in Queensland legislation. Ms Lawrence said due to the seriousness of this case, the Crown will be asking for life in prison for the male defendant.
