https://www.independent.ie/irish-ne...eputation-for-relative-leniency-36270563.htmlAnother 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?
