Thread: Short Prison Term

  1. #1
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/3078216.stm

    Scotland's most senior legal officer has asked for a report into whether a five-year prison sentence given to a man who raped an 13-month-old baby was "unduly lenient".

    Lord Advocate Colin Boyd QC's move follows anger at the sentence given to father-of-three James Taylor, who took pictures of himself raping the baby.
    He appeared for sentence at the High Court in Dunfermline after pleading guilty last month to raping the baby girl, indecency towards a six-year-old girl and possessing indecent images of children.
    Police who raided his Grangemouth home found a powerful computer, CDs, and floppy disks containing 2,280 indecent images of children.

    Most had been downloaded from the internet, but computer specialists were able to recover some horrific images of Taylor's own making which he had tried to delete.

    They included graphic incriminating pictures of Taylor himself raping the baby girl, whose age at the time was estimated to be 13 months and of the six-year-old girl naked in bed.
    he would have been jailed for much longer, if it had not been for a psychologist's report assessing there was only a low risk of him reoffending.

    That is well f*cked up. i know this will probably bring nothing new to the variety of other anti paedophile threads, but i thought it was so screwed up i should post it anyway.

    That last quote gets me. I can not understand these psychologists that are so willing to take risks with other peoples children....

    It will probably be a shorter prison sentence once he gets inside!

    I hope the guy at least gets to know his feminine side better in prison.

    How this can even be considered to be justice is absolutely beyond me.

    Even if it were true that he would never re-offend how can this be justified. The punishment aspect of prison seems to have been removed. What message does this send out to others like him. If he can get away with that, then where is the preventive aspect of the sentencig.

    This is an embarrasment to our country and I officialy apologise on it's behalf.

    I can only hope that the Lord Advocate takes action, both with regard to the sentence and the Judge who made it.

    Since when has the justice system been just?

    And how can it be if decisions like that are allowed to stand.....personally I would like to chop it off and put em in a very very secure hospital with very large and unpleasant minders (oh sorry I meant male nurses...lol) and with no chance of release...they are sick in a medical sense as it just aint normal behaviour...I dont think it is possible to ever be really 'cured' from this kind of mental deviance and so they can never be let out to find that 'the compulsion was too strong....blah blah'. Try explaining that to the parents and kids they abuse once they are supposed to be 'cured'

    what can i say. i have been in prison myself and i've seen what happens to nonces inside. he wont have an easy time. if he's in 'genpop' it will be a misery once people find out. i saw jugs of boiling water with sugar in thrown over them - it sticks like glue and takes every layer of skin off to the flesh; not much compensation to the young girls who's live he ruined but some thing for him to think about.

    as for nonces in general its all pretty fucked up - i've lost count the number of times kiddy porn has come up in my searches or even on the free photo galleries

    its blatantly not good at all. i agree with one thing though - how the hell can they say there is no danger of re-offending!!! whatever floats your boat will always do it - nothing can change what you like.


    by the way boycott amazon - they're selling some nasty book trying to rationalize man/boy love - urgh!!
