Brutal backpacker attacker jailed in Australia

Brutal backpacker attacker jailed in AustraliaA man who brutally attacked two female backpackers on a remote Australian beach will spend at least 17 years in jail with a judge Wednesday accusing him of damaging the country’s reputation as a safe destination. Roman Heinze was found guilty of six offences in March over the harrowing ordeal in which the 61-year-old tied up and sexually assaulted a Brazilian woman and beat her German friend with a hammer when she tried to intervene. As she handed down the sentence for indecent assault, aggravated kidnapping and endangering life, Justice Trish Kelly said, “you have violent and obsessive sexual preoccupations for which you have amply demonstrated you’re capable of acting out”.
