Barrett first met the girl at a 2002 concert in London after contacting her via the internet and phone. He was invited to stay with her family, who did not believe the relationship "inappropriate", the court heard.

lock up the parents who allow an 18 year old to stay the night with their 12 year old daughter...

Judge Roach is a POS that should be taken off the bench.

His views that everything wrong (sexually) that happens must be the fault of the woman (or in this case, the female child. Mad

I just do NOT understand how a 'man' like this can be allowed to stay on the bench after allowing this bastard to go free!

I hope there is some method in the U.K. for removing Judges like this one.

The GIRL[/b] was TWELVE[/u] got God's sake!

Ehem, with 18, in most countries parents have nothing "to allow" anymore :wink: (In Scotland it's even 16.)

Like in any other democratic country, judges are independent and there is a functional legal system.
Serious papers reported about a bit differently than tabloids like the Mirror:

Man avoids jail term after sex with girl, 12

Clare Dyer, legal correspondent
Thursday September 9, 2004
The Guardian

The attorney general yesterday asked to examine the file of a man who escaped a jail sentence after admitting he had had sex with a 12-year-old girl he met in an internet chat room.
Michael Barrett, 20, received a two-year conditional discharge at Bristol crown court on Monday. The trainee croupier, who pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, was 18 when he befriended the girl, then 12, from Manchester.

The attorney general's office said it was responding to a request by Phoenix Survivors, a support group for victims of child molesters, who had asked for the case to be referred to the court of appeal, which can impose a tougher sentence.

"We are considering whether the sentence is unduly lenient," a spokeswoman said.

On sentencing Barrett, of Southmead in Bristol, the judge, Michael Roach, said it was an "exceptional case" as the 12-year-old had instigated sexual contact: "I trust you to behave yourself now ... Set yourself straight," he said.

Barrett was also put on the sex offenders' register.
