Re: Dates of birth of convicted abusers

I hope they survive prison. I also hope that eventually they come to some sort of realisation of the trauma they have caused their victims, and the hurt they have caused the wider relationships around the victims, their own families and friends. That work is painful and difficult and time-consuming ...

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

How is a convicted offender determined to show genuine remorse? He pled not guilty and sought character witnesses for himself. In my mind not the actions of a person who acknowledges a transgression. And at what point does the question of remorse get looked at - at sentencing or at parole? At this ...

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Given the length of his offending, would that determine some element of dangerousness? This sounds massively assumptive on my part but he doesn't come across as an opportunist paedophile, so the long-term predatory nature of his actions must be an indication that it could happen again? Regarding the...

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Gunning was assistant housemaster in Mid A until about 87? Then Frank McKenna took over as assistant. Mike "Taffy" Williams was housemaster at least all the time I was in Mid A (85-89) and probably a year or so before that. Dr Chapman (from South Africa) took over, but not sure for how long. These ...

Re: Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse - Peter Ball - publication date

I shall be very interested to read this. There are 27 pages on his schedule of convictions and allegations of misconduct against boys and young men.

And I wait to see the connections between him and CH.

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

He was asked to leave mid term. (On another thread.) Unlikely to get an obit.

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Dobbie was in Whites during the 80s. Gunning was housemaster of Mid A mid?-late 80s. By 1990 it was Chapman who lived out of house with his family in West Gun Copse. It was always problematic in my mind having houseparents not in situ. I had cause to report something to Chapman in 1990 and he had no...

Not that it matters, but I don’t even remember GWD and JAH being particularly close at school. They weren’t an obvious pairing where guilt by association may naturally occur.

My bad. Apologies! And I thought I was treading so carefully too. Delete anything I've written that needs to be removed. And I'll log off so I can't post anything!

Re: Do You Tell People That You Went To Public School?

If pressed I might say I went to boarding school depending who I'm talking to and whether I want to answer questions about it, but I've never thought of it as a 'public school' so I wouldn't use those words.

Does anyone know how long he has been on remand for?
He and JAH went to Lewes prison after their guilty verdicts last summer. June possibly? It'll be on a previous thread somewhere.

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Very little press coverage this time around. I was hoping that the press would name the teacher the victim confided in. I’m interested to know whether it’s a familiar name from previous trials. Press might cover it once the verdict and sentencing are done? It's all very close to the publication of ...
