Why the discrepancy in the sentence?

He gets another 7 years...and now she is off????
Family members of victims sexually assaulted by a Winnipeg couple cursed and sobbed in court Tuesday, upset at what they felt were lenient penalties handed down to the husband and wife.

The 25-year-old woman was released after Justice Gerald Jewers gave her a sentence equal to the approximately two years she had already spent in pretrial custody. Her 39-year-old common-law husband was given another seven years behind bars.

CTV Winnipeg's Kelly Dehn reported that the two victim's families reacted in shock to the sentences.

"One woman was crying as she was walking out of the courtroom, saying that (the wife) was Manitoba's answer to Karla Homolka," Dehn reported. "She says she could not believe what she was hearing in that courtroom."

The couple sexually assaulted young girls they lured into their home. The wife was convicted of three charges of sexual assault and forcible confinement, while her husband was convicted of eight charges, including kidnapping and sexual assault.
Sounds like the Homolka case, no?

Female sex offenders always get a lesser sentence: Hugely lesser if the victim is male.

Canada's definition of equality is very unequal.
