Re: RIP Tom Jeffers 1944-2020

Never ever heard a bad word about him. A genuinely decent man.

Re: prison releases

Webb won't.

Those in open prison are not particularly high risk.

So far as those in other prisons are concerned, I think they will release prisoners serving very short sentences who can be supervised for a short period in the community.

Re: Another one charged Peter Webb, aged 77.

Beyond stating what the precise charges are, this subject has to go on lockdown.

I can say with 100% certainty that jurors do read the forum.

I am happy to discuss this by private message.

Re: Now it reaches Eton

Have I got this right but wasn't it parents and alumni of Eton and Queen's Club who appeared in the box as witnesses to attest to Karim's excellent character when he was up before the beak? Perhaps it's Eton as well as Christ's Hospital who can't see these people coming (fnurg fnurg). It was indeed...

Does anyone happen to know if the Judge's sentencing remarks from the Karim trial were published? I would be keen to read a copy of them.
Not beyond what can be read in newspaper reports.

Re: prison releases

In some cases they can be offered a tag and released earlier than normal. Sex offenders are one category (violent offenders being the other) who are unlikely to be tagged. It should also be said that although they are not admissible in evidence in court proceedings, lie detectors are used in some a...

Re: prison releases

My recollection is that they were all (save Burr) given standard determinate sentences which means that they will be automatically released at the halfway point. In theory they are eligible to be released on Home Detention Curfew (tag) four and a half months before the halfway point but in practice ...

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

These things have gone in phases.

They went through scout masters, then care homes, then young offenders institutions, the entertainment (Saville, DLT etc) " then football coaches.

Teachers have come on at various stages.

Re: Bishop Ball documentary BBC2 2100 TONIGHT

I remember four different doors to the outside plus the tube led straight up into the boarding houses.

Ridiculous absence of security. We could have been abused in our beds. Sadly some were.
