If I had seen that I would have given him a proper slap. Instead the courts will do nothing. Time for some instance justice for these a holes.

God only knows, and any victims of course, what else such a pervert has done.

Let’s hope male members of the girls family have more say in the sentencing as time is on their side.

YOU Do know that the bloke has pleaded NOT guilty right ???
That means, NO magistrates.
He must go to real court, with a judge and jury.
To hear HIS side of the story, right ?
For all we know HE could have been the victim of a gang of unruly drunk teenagers.
Who knows ?
