A serial paedophile who attended more than 170 lessons to stop his attraction to young girls has been jailed again for downloading child porn on to his computer.What a shocker.
And a court heard that John Tooby deliberately befriended women with school-age daughters only months after the licence from his previous prison term expired.
Jailing him for four years, Judge John Burgess told Tooby, from Alvaston, that he was "a danger" to children.In which case, why only four years? Why not an indefinite sentence ‘for the protection of the public’?
I mean, even his own solicitor could only muster this feeble defence:
Clive Stockwell, in mitigation, said that, since his release, Tooby had only missed one of the sessions and had downloaded the pictures rather than abusing children directly.Talk about damning with faint praise…
