Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

JR, re your post above, all cases start in the magistrates' court. For a serious offence a not guilty plea will usually be sent to Crown Court for trial. A guilty plea will go there for sentencing; so also a finding of guilty to a not guilty plea where the District Judge or the magistrates consider...

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

Thanks for the update. A Magistrates court seems a lenient way of dealing with such an issue.

Re: how to appeal an Unduly Lenient Crown Court Sentence

As far as the plea bargain scenario is concerned, I'll wait until ALL the cases are completed before commenting further. All this occured long after my departure from CH, and as I have said on another thread, I never had any evidence of staff/pupil abuse. These sorts of abuse are dealt with more ope...

Re: how to appeal an Unduly Lenient Crown Court Sentence

In view of the lenient sentence AND the fact of the previous conviction, thie may have been already passed back to the AG.

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

Even after pleading guilty, a four year sentence seems exceptionally light to me, given his position as an 'educator' in a boarding school at the time of the offences.

I'll await the other case results with extreme interest.

Re: Less flamboyant CH teachers

certain restrictions on publishing such information less than 100 years after death You can publish what you like about someone who's dead. And truth is a defence against libel anyway. So if you wanted to add to the potted biography something like 'lazy and incompetent' or 'notorious paedophile' or...

Re: Politics

And on this subject, did anyone else watch that very long programme 'Gulag' on TV last night ??

We all know Stalin and Co were monsters but this programme was a real eye opener.

Re: CH in Art

Checking out the website for the "Impressionists in London" exhibition which has just opened at Tate Britain, I note that it includes a painting by James Tissot called "London Visitors" which depicts some important looking members of the bourgeoisie plus a couple of Housey boys.
