Concern over 'light' sentence for child porn 'cop'
"FRIDAY, JULY 6: A 12-month jail sentence for a trainee police officer convicted of child porn charges was not long enough, according to a childrens’ rights campaigner.
Sheelagh Cooper of the Coalition for the Protection of Children questioned whether a year would be long enough to ensure that shamed Paul Boorman got suitable treatment behind bars.
Ms Cooper said: “Clearly [sic], this person has a major psychiatric problem [sic] or he wouldn’t be engaged in watching this kind of material. In order not to be a danger going forward [sic], he needs treatment [sic]. The question is if he can get the treatment he needs in less than a year. I’m not sure, but I don’t think so.
“That should be the measuring stick for any sentencing of a sexual [sic] offender.”"
