One day, not far off the citizenry are going to react really rather badly towards the judiciary and other unelected officials that continually let bad bastards out on parole only for them to continue their life of crime.
A man who sexually assaulted a young woman in a Dunedin park last September was on parole at the time from a lengthy prison sentence for serious sexual offending in 2005, the High Court in Dunedin heard yesterday.
Shaun Kahu Leonard, 29, had served seven years of a nine and a half year jail term for a rape with characteristics amounting to deviancy and sadism and had been out of jail only four months when he attacked the 25-year-old Dunedin woman on September 24 last year.
Yesterday he was sentenced to preventive detention for that offence and must remain in prison for at least five years.
Whoopy…5 years in prison…a long drop off a short rope is perhaps the only solution for some of these crims.
Toby Keith has a song just for this occasion.
