Justice, even after 40 years

Bournemouth Echo: Justice, even after 40 years Justice, even after 40 years

ONE of the important legacies of the Jimmy Savile case is the ripple effect.

More and more historic cases of abuse are coming to light.

And the arm of the criminal justice system is reaching back decades to bring offenders before courts over crimes they thought long dead and buried. Not just celebrities like Stuart Hall, but those like local ‘hero’ David Bryant.

The firefighter honoured in Christchurch for his service is now facing up to a prison term after being convicted of rape nearly 40 years ago. His own fall from grace will not be the last.

Nothing like prejudging is there.

At the moment these are merely accusations, nothing has been proven or not as the case may be. But don't let facts get in the way of your own prejudices.
