Surely one indecent image is one too many?
I WAS astounded to read in the Tele that a teacher is likely to avoid jail despite being found in possession of indecent images of children.
I repeat, he was a primary school teacher.
Am I the only person who thinks this is ludicrous?
Apparently he only had a “very low number” of images in his possession.
Does this make his behaviour — this man who has been in a classroom with young children — more forgivable?
In my view, one image is one too many.
His sentence has been deferred until May.
I hope in the interim the sheriff has a good think about the crime.
On the same page in the Tele there was a story about a man who hid a mobile phone in a shampoo bottle so he could secretly film a woman taking a bath.
He pleaded guilty to the charge — yet this sneaky and intrusive crime doesn’t merit a jail sentence either.
The man has been recommended for a communitybased disposal as he has no previous convictions.
These ridiculous rulings prove the law really is an ass.
