    No, not all. But then don't let knowledge stand in the way of imaginary point scoring, will you...

    Just read rest of this thread after page 2 while watching a B movie called The Two Faces of January. Viggo Mortenson and Kirstin Dunst so should have been a lot better!

    Over the last 12 months, I've been in court twice as a witness. One thing that really impressed me was both judges. We have a view of judges as removed from reality, doddering and delivering verdicts that cause an outcry for being either too lenient or too harsh.

    During a trial, the judge writes his notes by hand and in long-hand. Proceedings are often slowed down so the judge can deliberately scribble away at his pad with a fountain pen. In both cases, I was tremendously impressed by the diligence of the judge, his ability to absorb information and process that information within the framework of the law.

    So whether you agree with Chaz, Col or Watford, what's really important, and likely, is that the judge has very likely got this sentencing right on the basis of all the information he has been told to which we are not privy.

    Interesting debate nevertheless.

    Bit more info:

    In support of the sentence - Johnson's conviction of sexual touching involved one instance of digital penetration (sorry for the detail but it's relevant) and therefore is a classed as a Category A offence apparently

    In support of excessive sentence - doubts are being expressed over the severity of the offence given that Johnson is a first time offender. Comparisons are being made with Stephen Manley who sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl in a toilet leaving the victim terrified. He too received 6 years

    Johnson is appealing his conviction. He needs to get permission to go to the Court of Appeal. I assume if he fails, he will appeal the sentence

    CHILD KILLERS ARE THE ONES THEY SHOULD NEVER BE RELEASED,I THINK THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT RELEASING ONE AFTER HIM DOING 24 YEARS
    HOW CAN THEY DO THAT THE TAKING OF A POOR INOCENT SHOULD MEAN LIFE,ALL COLD BLOODED MURDER SHOULD BE A NATURAL LIFE SENTENCE
