The Zion Wildlife Gardens owner will face no other penalties for the January 2005 attacks, which left Ms Greybrook with injuries that included a cut above her eye which required nine stitches.
The couple at the centre of the Lion Man three-in-a-bed assault case approached the Herald last night, furious that Craig Busch has, in their eyes, got the last word. Hermes White said she and her husband, Des, were "really angry" about what Busch - convicted yesterday on two charges of assaulting former partner Karen Greybrook - had said on TV last night. Busch had "tried to get sympathy from the New Zealand public, when he was the one who assaulted us", she said. The Whites also emphasised that "there was nothing going on" between the couple and Ms Greybrook on the night in January 2005 when Busch found the trio in bed together.
