Denys Terebenets, 27, wept in the dock as he was handed a three year community order and allowed to walk free despite admitting a raft of child sex charges.FFS! It's not as if he's going to be needed in the child's life, is it? The mother isn't as gullible as m'learned friend:

Sentencing, Judge John Edwards said he had been convinced by the mitigation put forward by Terebenets defence team and agreed with a probation report which recommended his risk to society was best managed in the community.

"I hoe (sic) you appreciate the harm that cases such as these involve - you are feeding a burgeoning market.
"You could have no complaint if I passed a deterrent sentence.
