Adding insult to injury, Judge Nigel Peters has reviewed his own sentencing of the convicted paedophile Neil Wilson.
He has increased the sentence from an 8 month suspended sentence to a 12 month suspended sentence, this for a man who raped a 13 year old girl.
In doing so, he has increased the amount of time this arsehole will not spend in prison by four months. A real victory for justice then…
The sentence is still to be reviewed by the Attorney General.
A man whose conviction over serious sexual offences prompted outrage has had his sentence slightly increased.
Neil Wilson, 41, was handed an eight month suspended sentence last week in a case which saw his 13-year-old victim described in court as “predatory”.
Appearing via video link at Snaresbrook crown court in east London, Wilson was handed a 12 month suspended sentence – an increase of four months.
The judge amended the sentence due to a sentencing technicality rather than the reaction to the language used in court last week.
Wilson’s original sentence for sexual activity with a child remained unchanged, further counts over indecent photographs prompted the increased punishment.
Last Monday prosecution barrister Robert Colover had described the 13-year-old in court, he said: “The girl is predatory in all her actions and she is sexually experienced.”
Passing his original sentence, Judge Nigel Peters then said he had taken into account that the girl looked and behaved “a little bit older” than she was.
