Another suspended sentence in the Circuit Court from a Judge who is consistent in his lenience to child abusers. Be careful you do not have your TV too loud, the Gardai are only to quick to charge you. It happened to my friends.

Why don’t they prioritise these cases? Five year’s waiting to get a non-custodial sentence sends out the message that the State doesn’t view this crime being as serious as the one committed by the woman last year who got jailed for robbing a bar of chocolate. Compare yesterday’s report of an armed robber accused of stealing €13,000 from Ardagh post office who got remanded in custody while waiting for trial. That armed robber was too dangerous to get bail, there was a danger he might re-offend while waiting for the case to come up, etc etc. Ok, but what was Martin Guerin up to in the five years it took to bring him before the court?  Judge Nolan certainly knows that paedophiles can reoffend – it would be naive to think otherwise.

Fred says, the pattern of sentencing in this country baffles Logic, dont steal a bar of chocolate, you will get a sentence, dont defend your partner when she is bullied and belittled, when one confronts the bully by phone, he runs to a Garda Station??? We live in a Corrupt Toxic country.Fred,
