Violent rapist has new sentence imposed after Court of Appeal decision

A rapist who tried to pervert the course of justice with threatening text messages has had his sentence quashed after his case was heard before the Court of Appeal.

However, he will still spend nearly 10 years behind bars.

In a judgment released today from an August 1 hearing, Justices Mark Cooper, Timothy Brewer and Mary Peters allowed the man’s appeal, quashed his sentence for rape, and imposed a new length of imprisonment.

The man, whose identity is suppressed, was jailed for 10 years and two months after being found guilty of 12 charges for the violent rape of the mother of his child in June 2015.

He was visiting the woman to celebrate their son’s birthday before an argument ensued, the decision reads.

During the scuffle the man picked up a 30cm long stainless steel knife

High Court judges ‘uneducated’ for reducing rapist’s sentence

JOHANNESBURG – Non-governmental organisation Women and Men Against Child Abuse says two Pretoria High Court judges are uneducated after they reduced the life sentence of a man who forced his six-year-old stepdaughter to re-enact porn movie scenes with him.

The judges reduced the man’s sentence from life to 20 years in prison because they say he only forced the girl to have oral sex with him and that this did not constitute a severe rape case.

But Miranda Jordan-Friedman says her organisation is appalled by the judgment.

Judge H.R Fourie said while it was accepted that oral rape was disgusting and traumatic for the child, it didn’t result in any physical injuries or pain.

But Jordan-Friedman says this judgment is wrong.

“It is all the same as far as the long-term consequences, the betrayal and the shame. So obviously we have two very uneducated judges.”

She says it sends a message that oral rape is

Child rapist faces lengthy prison sentence

A child rapist faces up to 17 years in jail after a court heard he had caused ‘real psychological harm’ to his victim.

As Carl Goddard left Nottingham Crown Court today, a man shouted: “Go and rot in hell, you nonce.”

The outburst came after 35-year-old was put on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and banned from working with children.

After shouting the comment at Nottingham Crown Court, the man quietly said “sorry” before leaving the room.

Goddard, formerly of Walnut Tree Crescent, Forest Town, is currently serving 13 years for which he was convicted in November 2015 of separate offences relating to sexual activity with a child. Judge John Burgess added an 11-year term for offences committed before the earlier sentence was handed down.

Goddard had caused “real psychological harm” to the girl, said the judge, who told him: “She has harmed

Rapist’s sentence reduced following landmark judgment

SINGAPORE: While victims of sexual assault experience the same emotional trauma as rape victims – and the maximum punishment for the offences is the same – rape should be treated more seriously, Singapore’s highest court ruled in a landmark judgment on Monday (Sep 25).

Both offences have a maximum jail term of up to 20 years and caning.

However in a 70-page judgment, the apex court outlined a new sentencing framework for sexual assault by penetration, similar to new guidelines for the offence of rape it issued earlier this year. Depending on the facts of each case and the presence of aggravating factors, those convicted of sexual assault by penetration would fall into one of three bands, the court ruled.
