Former children's TV presenter arrested by Savile sex probe detectives 'spends Christmas at psychiatric clinic'

">The star, in his 80s, is staying at a Priory mental health clinic
>Admitted after suffering stress in the wake of the police probe
>He was interviewed last month under caution at a London police station

A TV star questioned by police investigating the Jimmy Savile scandal spent Christmas in hospital amid fears for his mental health.

The man, in his 80s, was admitted to a Priory clinic for treatment for acute stress after being told of the allegations against him.

The children’s TV presenter, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was interviewed last month under caution as part of Scotland Yard’s Operation Yewtree."

Times crime editor warns of “chilling effect” of Leveson Inquiry

"The crime editor of the Times has said the “chilling effect” of the Leveson Inquiry and the Metropolitan police’s “internal clampdown” has led to there being “virtually no social contact with officers”.

“In the current climate, if you arranged to meet an officer you’d be looking over your shoulder the whole time,” Sean O’Neill told the Inquiry this morning.

He expressed his fear that building up a relationship of trust with contacts would be “seriously inhibited” if it were impossible to meet them for coffee, noting that he had “bought officers and staff cups of coffee, pints of beer, lunches and evening meals”."

Held on Wednesday 21 Mar at 10:00

Transcript of a hearing of the Leveson Inquiry

"Q: In terms of your career, Mr O'Neill, after working as a reporter in Northern Ireland, you moved to the Daily Telegraph in 1992, you joined the Times in 2004 and you became its crime editor in 2007; is that correct?"

Child safety merger condemned as ‘dangerous’

"Theresa May’s plans to shake up Britain’s world-renowned child protection squad have been condemned as potentially dangerous.

The Home Office said yesterday that the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (Ceop) would investigate the scandal of street grooming gangs exposed by The Times last week.

But Jim Gamble, who quit [oh yes, quit ;) ] recently as head of Ceop, and other prominent supporters of the unit in Britain and abroad, said that the Home Secretary’s plans to subsume it into a new FBI-style agency were ill-informed, politically motivated and potentially dangerous for child safety."

'Vigilante' cracks down on possible pedophile with unusual crimes

"Kokomo man poses as law official

A vigilante from Indiana who attempted to catch a possible pedophile in Washington State has been charged with extortion and kidnapping.

Twenty-eight-year-old Adam Blazak of Kokomo, Ind., faces charges in King County, Wash., after luring a man into a Seattle hotel room and posing as a law enforcement official.

According to officials, Blazak posed as a 14-year-old girl looking for sex on Craigslist, to which a Seattle University student named MA responded.

Once inside the hotel room, A was ordered to the ground, handcuffed and told he was "under arrest" by a "federal agent.""

Physicians in China treat addictions by destroying the brain’s pleasure center

"Drug addiction in China is highly stigmatized. And now, some doctors are trying to cure it with a radical procedure known as as a "stereotactic ablation." More simply, it's the practice of destroying parts of the brain's "pleasure centers" (the nucleus accumbens) in heroin addicts and alcoholics as a way to stop drug cravings. At the same time, however, damage to this region could also impair a person's ability to experience natural longings and other emotions, including joy."

Electronic monitoring via a GPS system will also apply to dangerous sexual offenders who have already been released and are currently on supervision orders, with the new powers due to come into effect from February.

The $6 million system will only be used in Perth initially, with a regional phase-in scheduled later in the year."

Year of crime: Former detective Mark Williams-Thomas on Jimmy Savile, Tia Sharp, Twitter perverts, and Al-Hilli murder mystery

"Our evidence [slander] had to stand up to scrutiny [which failed] if we were to prove [failed] that a national treasure was a predatory paedophile [sic and failed]"

It has been a year full of shocking crime stories...

The exposure of a legendary TV presenter as a predatory paedo­phile [sic]. The brutal slaying of a family gunned down while enjoying an idyllic holiday in France. The murder of a little girl who was later found in the loft of her grandmother’s house. And the child sex ring which was being run on Twitter.

One man links all of these disturbing cases. Mark Williams-Thomas, the former police detective turned TV presenter, has investigated each of them during an extraordinary 12 months of crime-fighting [mmwhhaaaaa]."



We will just let this comment, speak for itself, Mark ...

"BH 1:52 PM on 30/12/2012

I yet fail to see any proper evidence in the Savile stuff. So what this ex detective is actually going on about is beyond me.

I do see a thrown together documentary full of errors & mistakes however. Plus unchecked facts.

As one of Mr Williams Thomas' whistle blowers (Wilf De'ath) was arrested shortly after the showing, his defence against Savile starts to full apart. Considering that the Duncroft School mob had already colluded on a Internet Forum. This is also questionable. Even one of those girls seems to not know that Clunk Click was recorded at the BBC Theatre & not BBC TV Centre. Plus according to the Births, Deaths & Marriages website, she was 16 in 1974, not 14, as was stated by this rather dodgy programme, that missed many things & was very flawed.

Understandingly why the original Newsnight story was not show...Lack of proper evidence. Of & Gary Glitter & Freddie Starr never appeared on the same edition of Clunk Click either, so how could she have seen them at the same time, in a dressing room? These are the facts that a proper courtroom, would be highly suspicious of. Hence why I can find no evidence, to back up any stories. Even Esther Rantzen was blind to the Internet Forum (& had no knowledge of it, it seems)!"

Good Will Hunting After Savile Affair

"Tis the season of good will. Or twas. I couldn't help feeling that the sleigh bells rang a little hollower this time around. Not because Santas were getting the sack (ho! ho!) for not being CRB-checked. No, it was that confirmed child abuse paranoia would reach beyond Santa's grotto."

"Certainly it is this obsession with abuse today from the grotesque to the everyday - projected far enough backwards to be frankly pointless - that trivialises the experience of serious abuse. I shouldn't need to qualify it of course. All abuse is serious isn't it? Abuse is abuse as paedophile obsessives never tire of telling me. But what is abuse when it is so all encompassing? What good does exaggerating its prevalence do for those who really are being abused? Ironically it is those who abuse the notion of abuse that have a case to answer here. It is the irresponsibly hysterical commentators, lobbyists and policy-makers who see abuse everywhere that are really doing the real victims of abuse the most harm."

Paedophile [sic] was babysitting neighbour's child in Gloucestershire

"A PAEDOPHILE [sic] has been babysitting for their neighbour in Gloucestershire, it has emerged.

It's one of seven chilling cases in the county where police have had to warn parents that someone who had committed a sexual offence was in contact with their child.

In one of the incidents which have taken place over the past two years, the parents were told that the neighbour looking after their offspring had previously abused [?] children.

The information was revealed to the Echo through the Freedom of Information Act.

The request also revealed that there were times when people had asked for information on someone they suspected of being a sex offender, but that police refused to disclose it – to protect the abuser [sic]."

2012: the year when it became okay to blame victims of sexual assault

The myth that women can be held responsible [no] for men’s sex crimes has returned, writes Laura Bates

"At Caernarfon Crown Court earlier this month, a 49-year-old man was convicted of raping a teenage girl. Jailing the rapist, the judge told him: “She let herself down badly. She consumed far too much alcohol and took drugs, but she also had the misfortune of meeting you”.

It was the latest in a wave of examples of victim-blaming [no], a phenomenon that Christina Diamandopoulos, of the Rape Crisis charity, describes as the “myth that women are responsible for men’s sexual behaviour. From this stems the idea that what a woman wears, says, where she goes, or what she does can make her responsible [no] for the crime committed against her.” The problem is compounded by common misconceptions, such as the idea that all rapists are strangers, who attack in dark alleys at night. In fact, Ms Diamandopoulos says, “most rape is committed by partners, ex-partners and men who are known to the woman”."

India Sex Offenders 'Named And Shamed', After Protests Over Brutal Delhi Student Gang Rape

"India's convicted sex offenders will have their names, photographs and addresses published, in a highly controversial measure by the government to tackle growing anger after a series of high-profile sex attacks in the country.

Protests have been ongoing since the brutal gang rape of a Delhi student on a local bus by six men, leaving her hospitalised with serious internal injuries.

Medics describe her condition as "critical" and she has been moved to a specialist hospital in Singapore."

India to name and shame sex offenders as rape protests grow

"There are fears that identifying convicted rapists will lead to vigilante attacks. Others point out that, with a national average conviction rate of 25% for rape cases, and with many charges taking several years to reach court and enormous numbers of incidents going unreported, the measure can only have a limited effect. Women's rights campaigners have, however, backed the idea.

"It is true that there is a risk of such attacks but at the moment it is the victim who has to suffer the shame and social ostracism," said Ranjana Kumari, director of Delhi's Centre for Social Research. "She can't get married, for example. This will make sure the rapist is shamed. He won't get a job, or somewhere to live and will be cut off from society. This is a powerful deterrent," Kumari, who is also a member of the national commission for empowerment of women, told the Guardian."

"The six men responsible for the incident in Delhi included a driver of an unlicensed private bus, a vegetable seller and a gym assistant. Most had grown up in deeply conservative parts of rural India before moving to the capital."

"Kumari, one of those who suggested the public sex offenders' register, said she was pleased with the government's move but disappointed that finances devoted to women's schemes had been cut at a meeting earlier this week."

SURREY, B.C. - To the young teenager's eyes, the invitation from an online male suitor seems relatively harmless at first: perhaps you'd like to cuddle, talk, play games?

Five minutes into the chat, the 27-year-old man from the Metro Vancouver area asks if the girl has a "BF" — a boyfriend. He then casually mentions porn.

I'm 13 years old, she reminds the man. She posts a blushing smiley-face emoticon.

Ten more minutes in, she clicks open a digital image he's just sent her way. The photo is not his face, but another body part, standing at attention. It scores the man a rendezvous, but not with the teenybopper he imagined."

Mothers of sex offenders share responsibility, burden of label

"MS celebrates his 21st birthday with his family before going to prison for possession of child pornography.

CS will never forget the moment she watched her 21-year-old son being led out of a Florida courtroom in handcuffs.

"This is not happening, this is not happening, this is not happening," she recalls thinking at the time. "Take me instead."

She sobbed because there was nothing she could do. M, the second of her three children, was going to prison after pleading guilty to 10 counts of possession of child pornography. A judge in Duval County sentenced him in April 2010 to 18 months in state prison and one year of probation, with the requirement that he register as a sex offender.

She told herself that they were lucky, that he could have received a longer prison sentence. But her worries extended far beyond prison. Under Florida law, he would likely remain on the registry for life, with the opportunity to appeal for good conduct. Where would he live after being released? How would he find a job? What about harassment? Would he ever date again? Who would want to marry a sex offender?

S is one of many mothers preoccupied with these questions on a daily basis. These women embody the notion that a mother's love is unconditional as they're often forced to look beyond horrific [sic] crimes that have left their children branded for life as sex offenders.

Monday 24 December 2012

Lifetime teaching ban for convicted sex pest

"K has now been issued with a prohibition order despite a Teaching Agency panel recommendation that K should be allowed to apply to be put back on the teaching register after 10 years.

Recommending a prohibition order, the disciplinary panel said that it had “regard to the protection of children, the maintenance of public confidence in the profession and declaring and upholding proper standards of conduct”.

Alan Meyrick, Teaching Agency deputy director, who gave the final decision on the Secretary of State’s behalf, said: “Mr K has four convictions for sexual assault.

“These offences were serious and took place in an educational context on several occasions.

“The panel has found this behaviour represents a serious departure from the standards expected of a teacher. Indeed the panel has made clear the offences constituted a serious departure from the personal and professional elements of the latest teacher’s standards published by the Department for Education.”

Mr Meyrick said the panel found the offences “amounted to misconduct that may have or did seriously affect the education and/or well being of the pupils concerned, include evidence of a deep-seated attitude leading to harmful behaviour and were serious sexual offences that led to the imposition of terms of imprisonment, albeit suspended.”

The decision means K is prohibited from teaching indefinitely in any school, sixth form college, youth accommodation or children’s home in England.

K has a right of appeal to the High Court."

Online Predators Not Distinctively Dangerous Sex Offenders

"A new University of New Hampshire study challenges the view that online predators are a distinctly dangerous variety of sex offender, requiring special programs to protect youth.

The study from the UNH Crimes against Children Research Center finds that sex offenders who target teens increasingly use Internet and cell phone communications to lure teens into sexual relationships. In crimes that involve such communications, offenders who meet and recruit youth online operate in much the same way as offenders who meet and know youth in ordinary offline environments.

"These are all serious crimes," said lead author Janis Wolak, a senior researcher at the UNH Crimes against Children Research Center. "But the so-called 'online predators' are not more insidious.""

Minuscule Effect On The Incidence Of Rape

December 24, 2012

Castration is not the right legal response

"Even the most ardent supporters of chemical castration recognise that administration of anti-androgens without relevant therapies defeats the point of the entire exercise. Given the significant side-effects of chemical castration, a law that would require indefinite administration of anti-androgens for sex offenders is likely to be unconstitutional. Even if the argument is that governments must invest in chemical castration even if it means a minuscule effect on the incidence of rape, it would require State governments to put in place a rigorous system of providing therapy for it to be a constitutional option. Given the condition of state health care services in India, there are very good reasons to be sceptical about the feasibility of providing such therapy."

The medical punishment for rape

"Chemical castration, one of the provisions in the draft bill being finalised by the Congress for tackling crimes against women, is a medical procedure that reduces sexual urges and arousal in a human being, whether a man or woman. The introduction of chemicals hampers the functioning of the circulating sex hormones, and makes a man incapable of rape.

One of the earliest and most famous subjects of chemical castration was mathematician Alan Turing, the man who defined algorithms and fathered a prototype of the computer. He was punished in 1952 for homosexuality, then a crime in the UK."

"Watching pornography and exposing oneself sexually online can enrich young people's lives, a Swedish researcher has found, but doing so also carries risks.

"A lot of it is about the need to be seen, to get affirmation, and to get attention," Pernilla Nigård, a doctoral candidate at Malmö University, told The Local.

Earlier this week, Nigård presented a study based on interviews with young men about why they watch pornography and with young women about why they publish revealing pictures of themselves online.

Having previously worked as a school counselor, Nigård had seen first hand how young people were spending more time online, often engaging in activities related to sexual expression."

Children who were once quite properly encouraged to build independence and make their own way to and from school are still being chauffeured or escorted aged ten or 12."

"But we have allowed fear of abductors or paedophiles [sic] to change our society and our community. We have allowed it to stifle the development and freedom of children and inhibit the innocent, caring and helpful responses of well-meaning adults. In that respect the perverts have won."

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman ruled in April that the names of nine plaintiffs who were convicted of the same offense must be stricken from the registry. A separate suit, filed after Feldman issued his decision, says the ruling should be applied to anyone in the same position."

"A SEX offender who left Britain to live abroad after being released early from jail has been given an 18-month prison sentence.

DW, aged 50, Newton Farm, Hereford, pleaded guilty to breaching the requirements of the sex offenders’ register.

He failed to notify police of a change of address and failed to tell them of his intention to leave the UK for the Phillipines, Worcester Crown Court heard.

In 2004 he was convicted of sexual offences on a girl and making indecent images of a child. He was sentenced to 15 months in jail and his prison licence was extended to three years.

But he then went to live in the Phillipines with his wife until the authorities in that country found out and extradited him back to the UK."

Twenty-year-old RM faced a stretch behind bars had he been convicted of abusing a woman at a party last Christmas.

But he walked free after what is believed to be the quickest ever verdict by a jury at Hamilton Sheriff Court.

M, of Holytown, had protested his innocence from the outset and had, in fact, been the one to call the police.

He told officers the 28-year-old woman had hit him and falsely accused him of rape.

His mum, ES, said M had suffered ‘humiliation’ and the the law should be changed to give men accused of sex crimes anonymity unless they are found guilty."

Supreme Court allows appeal over Ontario sex-offender data

"OTTAWA—The Supreme Court of Canada will allow the appeal of a ruling that would compel the Ontario government to reveal the number of sex offenders in the province by partial postal code.

The province’s Community Safety Ministry and its Information and Privacy Commissioner have been locked in a lengthy battle over the data, which the government says could identify individual offenders.

Earlier this year, Ontario’s top court ruled the information should be released.

The privacy commissioner had previously ordered the records be disclosed to an unnamed journalist, who made the request under Freedom of Information laws.

Last year, the Divisional Court dismissed the ministry’s application for a judicial review of the commissioner’s decision.

The ministry had said the information could reasonably lead to an expectation of harm, facilitate the commission of an illegal act or hamper the control of crime."

"Dont' use the internet as a babysitter

"Are there children in the house?" That's the first creepy question your new computer will ask under David Cameron's latest proposals to protect young people from porn. After rejecting the idea of an opt-in system requiring grown-ups to ask their internet service provider for access to adult material last week, the Prime Minister has cobbled together a new policy. His new wheeze is that parents should be prompted to set up filters when they purchase a new computer. If they simply click through the options without making changes, the strongest filters will be automatically activated. ISPs will be asked to verify that the users setting up the filter is over 18.

The young mother-of-one had pleaded guilty last month at the Dublin Children's Court to two theft charges and she has also admitted a begging offence. The girl, who is from Romania, had been accompanied to her hearing in November by her mother when she pleaded guilty. Her case had been adjourned for a pre-sentence probation report to be prepared.

However, she did not turn up for her sentencing hearing and Judge Ann Ryan was told that the girl may have left the country since she pleaded guilty to the offence."

"Around 50,000 criminals who were spared jail went on to commit another crime within a year, figures revealed yesterday.

The convicts – including violent thugs, burglars and drug dealers – were handed community service or a suspended jail term, leaving them free to commit new crimes.

Within 12 months, a total of 49,636 offenders who were not put behind bars were convicted of another offence. Had they been jailed, they would have been unable to offend again."

"Tory MP Priti Patel said: ‘These are quite shocking figures. They demonstrate the true extent of reoffending. ‘There is clearly a problem with the probation service which is not working well to deal with this issue."

JB, 56, was convicted in 2005 of the alleged offences which were said to have dated back to the 1970s.

After a retrial in 2010, the jury found the charges relating to children aged seven, eight and 13, to be not proven.

The General Teaching Council refused his bid to rejoin the teaching register after finding him unfit to teach.

Mr B taught English and History at a Glasgow secondary school before his conviction in 2005.

His teacher registration lapsed after this and he had applied to have it renewed."

BBC and ITV libel cash for McAlpine

"Lord McAlpine has formally settled his libel actions against the BBC and ITV

Lord McAlpine, who was wrongly implicated [no] in child sex abuse allegations, has settled his libel actions against the BBC and ITV.

The former Tory Party treasurer was not at London's High Court to hear their solicitors apologise unreservedly for the damage and distress caused. His lawyers confirmed that the agreements involved the payment of £185,000 damages by the BBC and £125,000 from ITV, together with very substantial costs.

The peer's counsel, Edward Garnier QC, told Mr Justice Tugendhat that the action followed a Newsnight broadcast in November about the alleged sexual abuse of boys at the Bryn Estyn children's home in Wales in the 1970s and 1980s.

Two victims claimed that they suffered abuse "at the hands of a leading Conservative politician from the Thatcher years" [bad enough a slur, one should think]. The item did not name Lord McAlpine [fact], but the programme-makers intended him to be the target of the allegations, he added [opinion, protected under free speech, ironically]

"Unfortunately, in fact disastrously [sic], names had already been named [elsewhere, and independent of the BBC]. Throughout the day on November 2, Newsnight's forthcoming report had been widely trailed on the internet. Furthermore, Lord McAlpine's name [amongst others, with no direct allegation] had been linked to it. In the aftermath of Newsnight's broadcast, Lord McAlpine was widely identified as the subject of Newsnight's allegations [such was the judgement of the people]

"In short, Newsnight made the most serious of defamatory allegations about Lord McAlpine [no], tarring him as a paedophile [no] who was guilty of sexually abusing vulnerable young boys living in care [no]. Those allegations are untrue [they did not even happen]. As the BBC now accepts, they were utterly baseless [hardly baseless, although it is a straw man]. These disgraceful allegations should never have been made [which they were not]."
