Given the carnage of broken marriages and blighted careers she left behind, her victims have little sympathy for her.‘Don’t get me wrong,’ the wife of one of those involved told me last week, ‘my husband was a plonker, a complete plonker for what he did.‘But she has really got away with this one.It goes without saying, of course, that none of those involved in this sorry episode emerges with much credit.A mother of two, having temporarily split from her doctor husband last year, Lewis posted profiles under assumed names on a number of dating websites.‘Scarlet’, as she was known, clearly was not shy about what she was after, listing herself on one website as a ‘cougar’— a word used to describe women looking for sex with younger men.When the girl told her to stay away from her father she replied: ‘Your dad is a sex pest.’On August 15 Lewis sent intimate pictures of the man to his wife and set up an online profile using the same photos, calling him a rapist.The court heard that the man was so depressed by what had happened that he had ‘contemplated suicide by walking onto some train tracks’.
