Another well-placed source pointed out that a defendant's guilty plea has a major bearing on sentencing, particularly in sex offence cases.

"The plea is a huge factor because it means a victim doesn't have to give evidence.

Perverse and evil deviants will use any trick in the book to their advantage.
Even if the evidence against them is overwhelming they know they have the power to put the victim through hell so they use this to get an undeserved lenient sentence.
It's twisted and insanely unjust but sex criminals seem to have the power of threat against their victims to force more lenient sentences out of judges.
Somehow the twisted legal system has handed the power of blackmail to sex criminals.

Does the system even realise this is wrong and that something must be done about it?

It is much better for the victim if the perpetrator pleads guilty because it avoids re-traumatising them in court.

I don't really see your point, or how it constitutes blackmail. It's pretty much how every modern legal system works. You plead guilty, you get some degree of leniency and save the state and the victim(s) a lot of money and humiliation.

What I find astonishing is that one person's word is being taken against another's in cases going back 30 or 40 years with no corroborating evidence.

If fairness it can work the other way too.

If someone is innocent or more likely believes themselves to be innocent but the balance of available evidence is against them they will probably be advised to plead guilty for the lesser sentence on the basis that if they do fight it and lose, they'll get hammered merely because they did fight it.

I dont see a big issue here, with a lot of sex crimes its more about being vindicated in court, the length of the sentence is secondary if the individual is found guilty
