Wonder what else he did? It's unlikely he was staying away from kids in all those years and different countries.

Australia and New Zealand are home to a wide variety of exotic flora and fauna.

Wonder what kind of evidence they got? It's a very long time ago. They must have more than the words of the accuser.

Detective Constable Lisa Wells of the East Sussex Safeguarding Investigations Unit, said; "Smith came to know his victim, then aged just five, in the late 1980s and this horrific abuse continued systematically, unbeknown to anyone else, for more than five years until he moved away from the area.

"She has suffered with the trauma and distress of what happened to her, in secret and it was not for more than a further 20 years that she felt strong enough to get in touch and share her experiences with us.
Bastard should have got 24 years and his dick cut off.

Only as much as it is anti-Ancient Egyptian or anti-Pre-Colombian American.
So now you are attacking another marginalized culture, and one that suffered genocide at European hands to boot.

Is buggery still an offence then? I'd have thought these days it would come under rape.

Didn't "we" used to mutilate forgers? Not amputation as such but close enough. Them was the good old days.
Judicial mutilation was heavily used in the kingdom of England from (at least) Anglo-Saxon times and also codified in law practices of the time. King Cnut's law codes https://www.bl.uk/collection-items/law-code-of-king-cnut provided for the removal of ears and nose if a married woman was caught in adultery, for example. IIRC the practices were phased out around the 14th century.

I've recently been learning/listening to a lot of pre-Renaissance British history!

Didn't he get killed in The Last Kingdom
Nah he died in Shaftesbury in 1035. Mind you, seems everybody goes there to die. Not much else to do unless you like re-enacting famous 1970s bread adverts.

We can't find any record of it having been moved in the logs.

More generally, a great many real things involve conspiracies, and on this forum 'conspiracy' covers all kinds of secret history and clandestine crime.

It seems an ideal fit.

That aside, the thread thrust was that fears of paedophilia far outweigh actual paedophilia and that the roving paedophile who preys on random children is a fleetingly rare occurence (most perpetrators are relatives, often close ones), yet if the media were your only guide, you would think it was a veritable plague.

A conspiracy of paedophiles is fortean. Paedophiles themselves, not so much.
Actually... What happened in Belgium changed my mind about that. The incidents around Marc Dutroux suggest that there has indeed been at least one Satanic pedophile ring in the world, complete with and assassination. I believe that at the time there were also suggested links to Andy Pandy the serial killer, but wiki doesn't seem to make the connection.
