    Wasnt it because they were historical crimes and he therefore got sentenced as according to the law when he broke them, rather than the stricter sentencing guidelines these days?

    Probably, either way it's bizarre to have such a short prison sentence for groping kids repeatedly, but the world did seem more tolerant of rapey old men in the past. My mum tells some horror stories about dirty old men chasing her or trying to grope girls in cinemas and it being just part of life. Presumably that's "the good old days" everyone is always wanting to bring back

    Might have been better for them if they came forward during the original trial

    He has served the custodial part of his sentence, although is part way through a trial for new charges.
    As DTKOAG says, released from prison this morning, on bail, and is to attend Southwark Crown Court on Monday when the trial will resume

    May a hundred rats climb through his didgeridoo that has been inserted into his nonce arse and eat him alive.

    I remember that advert. He went on to say that his parents threw him in the pool and he scrabbled to the side. His parents should have fuckin' drowned him!
