An adelaide (South Australian) Judge would not accept apology of serial pedo

Let's hope he gets the sentance right.

The survivors are on to his crap.

In their victim impact statements, the boys - now grown men - said they would never truly recover from Bennett's abuse.

"The view I have of the world is cold and dark, because I have viewed pure evil," one said.

"In my eyes, your actions were at the hand of Satan... a truly remorseful man would not still be claiming innocence."

Another victim said Bennett had robbed him of his love of basketball "to satisfy your sexual fantasies".

Oh but to have the chance to face my own perp before a judge. Then again, I can't even remember his face.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.

Too right. This guy swears up and down that he just did not do any of these things, all through a trial, and only after the jury says "Guilty" he suddenly feels bad enough to "take responsibility for what he did" and begs for mercy? It really makes me want to...laugh, actually. Seriously. I can't help it, because in spite of everything I find it incredibly FUNNY that this guy is expecting anyone to believe this. Beyond "sad, sick, pathetic, twisted"'s outright comical.

And it's a scene that plays itself out every single time a perp is found guilty after months of calling his accusers liars to their faces and spending every ounce of energy he has trying to convince the jury that he's innocent. Two hours later, when there's nothing left but the sentencing and it's clear that protests of innocence will accomplish nothing, then it's time for the crocodile tears and "I'm soooo sorry, I take fully responsibility, please be the good people I know you all are and ask the judge to only give me a couple of months instead of ten years." Like hell. Do you think if this guy was found Not Guilty he'd be suddenly remorseful? No; he'd be indignant about how those liars dared to accuse him of "such a horrible thing".

Children cannot consent; they can only comply.

Ick! My skin crawled just reading it. I hope he gets the maximum whatever that is downunder.

As Mark Twain once quipped, history may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.
