Tudor, a former patient at high-security Rampton Hospital in Notts and a convicted sex offender, had been living in the village at St Andrew's Healthcare Centre, which provides secure services and care for men with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders.And since – so far as they knew – nothing had happened on those other occasions, why not? I mean, it’s not like they could have predi…
Nottingham Crown Court heard he attacked the boy in woodland after asking for leave from the unit on July 20 – his seventh unescorted release.
He told staff he intended to buy binoculars and look at wildlife.
The court was told yesterday how Tudor had committed a catalogue of sex offences on young boys in the past and his sentences had been a variety of care or hospital orders for more than 20 years.*sigh*
Judge John Burgess jailed him indefinitely for public protection./facepalm
He will serve a minimum of four years and ten months, less 116 days already served, before his release will be assessed.
The judge said a psychiatrist's conclusion was Tudor had a mild mental impairment and a mental disorder.
"He remains a high risk of causing serious harm in the future by committing further offences of this nature," said the judge.
"Indeed he acknowledges as much himself. He told the author of the probation report, 'I will definitely re-offend against children if released into the community'."
In a statement released after the hearing, St Andrew's Healthcare said it welcomed the news that sentencing was now complete.Great! Who has been sacked for being so cavalier with the public’s safety?
It read: "St Andrew's wants to reassure the community of its commitment to good practice and that an incident of this type is exceptionally rare. Internal and external reviews of the incident are complete."
Yeah. Like I figured....
