And I don’t mean the crime which is obviously despicable, I mean the judge’s sentence.
Nicholas Beaumont-Dark, a stockbroker and Son of a former MP, found with 388 images of child abuse, including images of baby’s being sexually abused, and is part of an online network of paedophiles, this wealthy man has to pay £1,200 costs and is given a suspended sentence ?
“Passing sentence on Beaumont-Dark, the judge said: “You are fifty. You were, until you became enmeshed in this, a man of good character.” How the hell does he know he was of good character, is that what the Lodge had told the judge before sentencing ?
It’s not as though any witnesses will be likely to come forward if Nicholas Beaumont-Dark has put his sick fantasies into action.
It’s an absolute disgrace in my view.
And it’s not the first time Judge Griffith-Jones’ sentencing has been call into question, Also read – “Respectable Killers”
