    I'm horrified that child abusers are getting convicted, but not sent to prison. This case involves not merely active RL victims, but also possession of child porn, and the perpetrator was a Scout volunteer, which I would regard as a position of trust (although his victims weren't in his Scout troop):

    Another man let off without prison for [possession of child porn, this one a youth theatre director: http://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/cri...r_who_downloaded_indecent_images_of_children/

    "Man of good character" and pedophile do not belong in the same sentence. The judge must be smoking crack!

    No surprise here. Our JUSTICE system, where you can be out in 7 to 10 years or less for murdering someone, and where paedo's constantly walk free out of court. Disgraceful. Also scary.

    I was actually looking at some information on the few people with actual life sentences in the UK the other day, and surprise surprise, most of them had previously been convicted of murder. So had been released after serving minimal time, to kill again. It's a joke.

    I'm not surprised at all by this. Sadly it's the way it seems to be in the UK.
    It is very scary, pedophiles seem to be given chance after chance!

    How can a judge say he's a man of good character, while he's charged with such sickening crimes?
    Pathetic. :(

    We are having the same problem here in Australia not only with pedophiles but crims in general are freed to walk the streets and commit the crimes again.

    Many murders are committed by someone on parol.
