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

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.

Having a nice cup of tea and a sit-down.
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!
