“But We’ll Release Him From Custody Anyway…”

Sentencing Nicholls for his new offences, Judge David Owen-Jones described him as a significant risk to children and members of the public and said there was the likelihood of serious harm and further sex offences if he was released from custody.
So, banged up for the rest of his life, right? Wrong.
Nicholls was told he would have to serve a minimum of ten years, then five years on licence if he was considered to be suitable for release after ten years.
*sighs*
He was also made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
He was already on the sex offenders register. What a lot of good that did...

Got to be a hiccup. What about one last, last, last chance?

Ten years is a pretty stiff sentence. He'll be 62 at least, before he's out.

He is not going to be a popular fellow in prison. Criminals have their moral hierarchy with child abusers at the bottom.

I think the clue to the judge's short-sighted stupidity is in his surname.

Any relation d'ya think?

"He is not going to be a popular fellow in prison. "

But he'll spend it in isolation.
