This time Judge Graham Hume Jones gets the award for giving Callum Evans, an already convicted paedophile and the same man he’s let off twice before, one “last chance” to avoid jail.
Last July I wrote:
Two years ago Judge Graham Hume Jones sentenced Callum Evans, now 21 after he admitted six charges of making an indecent image of a child, five charges of causing or inciting a child to take part in pornography and two charges of sexual activity with a child. At that time Judge Graham Hume Jones said that banning him from Facebook would be excessive and isolate him the “social traffic” of his peers.
But less than two years later Judge Graham Hume Jones has been confronted with his own incompetence. At Taunton Crown Court in Somerset he heard how Callum Evans returned to Facebook within weeks of walking free from his court to find yet more victims. Posing as a girl variously named ‘Georgina’, ‘Georgia’, ‘Georgie’ and ‘Jade’, he tried to groom 13 boys and one girl aged between 13 and 15 in 12 months, tricking them into sending pornographic photos of themselves.
Callum Evans was found in possession of 648 sexually explicit images of children with a handful in the serious grade four category.
So this is the third time this judge has let this same paedophile off !
What the bloody hell is going on ?!
And now from today:
A convicted paedophile from Somerset who continued to abuse children even while under supervision has been given a “last chance” to avoid jail.
Callum Evans, 21, who had pleaded guilty to 40 child-related sex charges, was told by a Bristol Crown Court judge that he was close to a prison sentence.
But Judge Graham Hume Jones said he wanted to ensure Evans was kept under supervision for as long as possible.
He has been placed under a community order for three years.
