Stalker jailed for stabbing Japanese pop idol

TOKYO: The obsessed stalker who stabbed pop idol Mayu Tomita dozens of times in a savage attack last May was yesterday jailed for 14 in half years.

Tomita, 21, suffered 34 stab wounds on her face, neck, back and arms, and also has trouble with her vision and difficulty eating and singing since the attack, a district court in Tokyo heard last week.

Prosecutors sought a 17-year sentence for Tomohiro Iwazaki, 28, who was charged with attempted murder, calling his crime “repulsive”.

Iwazaki’s lawyers, in mitigation, argued that his actions were sudden and not premeditated.

The verdict is the latest turn in a horrific case that prompted Japan to revise its anti-stalking laws last December to cover social media harassment.

Tokyo police, who ignored Tomita’s pleas for help 12 days before the attack, apologised last December for not deeming Iwazaki a looming threat.

Iwazaki had sent her nearly 400 tweets and his idolatry

Oscars sensation ‘Gary from Chicago’ is attempted RAPIST: Stars’ homes tourist was released from jail just three …

The man who stole the show at the Oscars as ‘Gary from Chicago’ was convicted of attempted rape and served more than 22 years in prison, DailyMail.com reveals.

Gary Alan Coe and his fiancee Vickie Vines were part of the group of tourists Jimmy Kimmel invited inside the Dolby Theater during the ceremony Sunday night, gaining instant celebrity.

The pair made an impression as they calmly snapped photos of the celebrities sitting just inches from them, revealed they were engaged and even got fake-married by Denzel Washington.

Gary, a native of the South Shore of Chicago, was only able to attend the ceremony because he had been released three days beforehand, he told ABC7.

DailyMail.com can disclose that one of those felonies is attempted rape, for which Coe, 59, is a registered sex offender. He was jailed in October 1994, public records show.

Not all pedophiles should be jailed – police chief


 Thomas Peter ‘Pedophile playground’: Sexual predators targeting increasing number of children online

Chief Constable Simon Bailey of the National Police Chief’s Council said police forces “cannot cope” with the “huge” rise in reports. He says an increase in reporting sexual abuse – including historical cases – has lead to the policing system reaching “saturation point.”

Officers should focus on the most dangerous offenders who could directly offend against children, he says, while lower level offending should be dealt with through counselling and rehabilitation.

Due to stigma, it is difficult to know how many pedophiles there are in Britain. The National Crime Agency in 2015, however, estimated up to 750,000 men are interested in
