Lynda, I'm not one of the " why do people bother to report assaults years later" brigade but would like to ask a question about our criminal justice system in general which can apply in all cases from shoplifting to serious assault of any kind and murder

Are all those who plead guilty actualy guilty? OR are they just following advice from their legal team which is often given when your solicitor thinks he/she cannot defend you due to lack of evidence for the defence,

I ask because i was once in that situation when i was arrested and charged with a serious offence and was advised by my solicitor to plead guilty in order to get a lighter sentence,
Actually it was more like i was being told/pressured and told if i didn't plead guilty my sentence would probably be the maximum allowed under the law for that offence, I refused and although i had to employ another solicitor and a barrister once the cps/police new i was serious about my defence all charges where dropped.

I have as a result of that experiance never had any confidence in the criminal justice system in this country

Wow...so this lovely man(so called) who said he did'nt do it, has actually admitted it!!
Lets hope his sentence is good long one, but no doubt because of his age and how poorly he feels (poor man), it won't be what he deserves!!

Yes it does matter!!
Sadly our family perpetrator is dead and can't be taken to court.

Am I the only one who is now more interested in "stars" of 50 years ago who didn't abuse anyone :-0 :-(

Lets hope this stops the " why do people bother to report assaults years later" brigade.

Predators, will continue to abuse if anyone thinks that because it happened years ago it doesn't matter, it does.
