GUEST,Eliza BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread (221* d) RE: BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread 04 Jul 14

Not 'nan', 'an'! And not 'our' but 'out'. Have just got back from my little cleaning job, and my fingers are as stiff as sticks! Nearly dropped my buttered crumpet. Need my afternoon nap.

I agree with everything that has been said above about people who've been abused suffering in silence because they fear being disbelieved, or hurting members of the family etc. And just because other molestations go unpunished, it doesn't logically follow that one should therefore disregard all the instances that come before the Courts. I'm sure that all verdicts are arrived at as being 'beyond reasonable doubt', and as we have seen, not all cases are so proved. One either subscribes to our judicial system or endures anarchy.

The total sentence could have been as high as 14yrs, so 5yrs 9mnths is much reduced, probably with regard to Harris's age. He has the right of appeal of course, but that usually demands either new evidence in his defence, or an accusation of a miscarriage of justice.
