Not Taking Crime Seriously.

It sounds like the judge really cracked down hard on this rapist who was convicted of abducting and raping a 5 year old boy 8 days after he had been convicted and released for raping a 7 year old:

"You are a devious and manipulative young man with an unhealthy and completely unacceptable sexual interest in young boys.

"It is likely you will not be released for some very considerable period of time."

He added that it was "highly unusual" for a court to categorise a 16-year-old as a danger to the public but in this case it was merited.

"I have to say I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in reaching the conclusion that you are indeed a dangerous offender," the judge said.

So he's dangerous and devious and the judge says he won't be released for a very long time. So what is his sentence:

He must serve a minimum of three years minus five days before being considered for parole.

Thank God that this monster will be in his late teens before he can roam the streets again!

Radio 4's evening news last night repeatedly said he had been sentenced indefinitely, and then missed out the three years bit.

I'm genuinely baffled as to why.

As to the sentence, WTF!

And that, Ross, sums it all up and is why we have started this movement to reverse this c--p.

Dave H, BBC started off telling us he got 3 years then, without explanation, it became 'indeterminate'.
