When Tony and Doug (names changed for privacy), a gay couple, who had lived interstate and overseas, moved to a small rural town in Southern Tasmania, they were looking forward to life away from the fast pace they were used to.

What they did not bargain was for a year-long campaign of harassment and homophobic abuse directed at them by their next-door neighbour.

A court in Tasmania recently held the woman guilty of anti-gay abuse and sentenced her to six weeks in prison. The Hobart Magistrates Court suspended the sentence for a period of two years subject to good behaviour, which means that if she re-offends, she will go straight to prison.
