The Australian man who drugged and sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl because he believed he was rock star Ozzy Osbourne and had to follow in his footsteps has been sentenced to a maximum 10 years in jail, according to News.com.au.

Arthur Fairwell faced the NSW District Court today (Friday, September 8) over the attack at Bradbury, in Sydney's south-west, in May 2004.

The 39-year-old had pleaded guilty to six offenses, including aggravated sexual intercourse without consent and two counts of administering a stupefying drug.

During sentencing submissions for Fairwell last week, the court was told he was under the delusional belief he was Ozzy Osbourne, the heavy metal rocker turned reality TV star.

When Fairwell learned of an allegation that Osbourne had sex with a 13-year-old girl, his obsessive beliefs compelled him to think he had to follow suit, Judge Murrell heard.

The judge today (Sept. 8) said Fairwell had a long history of treatment for mental illness, and accepted psychiatric evidence that he suffered from a chronic paranoid schizophrenic disorder.

However, there was no evidence to suggest he was delusional or psychotic at the time of the offences, she said.

I despise rapist's anybody that has to take it from a woman deserves castration plane and simple.There are entirely too many women willing to just give it up.The only thing worse than someone who would rape a woman is a guy who would rape a child.Someone need's to get midevil on his a$$ forreal.

all of us know that this f***er knew damn good and well what he was doing. this sick pedafile stalked and then saw his oppurtunity. then he tries this weak a$$ defense in court hoping he gets some liberal d***head judge that will slap him on the wrist and let him go. f*** that, it didnt work and now he is in general population, with some hardcore motherf***ers who love to take guys like this and do whatever they want to him. and ya know what, he's still getting off to easy. i hope everyone in that prison has a turn with him, and his a$$ is big enough to stuff a watermelon in it by the time its all over with. which is much less severe and more gentle than what i would do to him, while the 13 year old watched him die his slow, agonizing, painful, and well deserved death........HIMMM!!!!
