Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Once the jury has reached a verdict, and if he's found guilty, does anyone know how long until a sentence is handed down? Last year's cases are to be considered in the sentencing as well.

Re: Trial of Gary William Dobbie

Twice! 1986 and 1987. I’m not sure I would have paid much, if any attention, as a young teen. I generally remember the sermons being mind numbingly dull, but likely many of them would interest (or offend) me as an adult. I do remember Simon Weston speaking but no other standouts. Now it's been ment...

These are the best explanations I can think of. I hope it helps.
Very much. Thank you for such a comprehensive reply. I had wondered whether it was a combination of the number of victims + length of offending that was the differentiating factor between the two men.

Re: Karim's sentence hearing

Can one of the forum's legal eagles explain why there has been a gap between Karim's verdict and sentencing when Husband's was fairly soon after his conviction?

Re: Dr Ken Little

No house / teaching staff gave a rats arse. I've written elsewhere about reporting Rick's mental state to house staff and getting the brush off. Maybe I should have been more persistent and tried elsewhere but I didn't to my continuing regret. I'm sorry you too felt unsupported, Scazza. J.R., I'm n...

Re: Will Dobbie be defrocked?

People don't always abide by the law of the land. The church is about forgiveness and once the sentence has been served is the slate clean? DBS checks should now show up his conviction but people can be manipulative and not accepting of reality.

Dr Ken Little

After Rick Slater died in 1990, a man called Dr Ken Little was brought in to assist those who needed it, as the school psychologist. I tried to contact him last summer to pass on some family news. I tried an old email address, several months later a reply from an unnamed person to say he'd died. I r...

Re: Who Knew What?

Didn't Baker oppose the merger which is why he was removed from post and Hansford drafted in to oversee the conjoining of the schools with the headmistress of Hertford?

Re: How far did the rot spread?

Yamaha, my feelings are running fairly high at the moment. Being told my opinions are naive or ridiculous is how I was treated when I was younger and subsequently at a massively critical moment at school that ultimately went tits up. I don't appreciate it as an adult, but now I have the nerve to say...
