Paedophile Loses Appeal

Australia: While I was distracted by the tale of a superstitious Melbourne Catholic school refusing to enrol a child with the last name Hell, I missed the news that kiddie fiddler William Little Pebble Kamm has lost his appeal against charges of paedophilia.

Amusingly enough his attempts to overturn the case were based more on trying to hide the fact that he's an idiot with a collection of stupid minions, rather than the improper behaviour of a judge.

Kamm's grounds for appeal included the jury should have been dismissed because of a note it had sent to the judge during the trial.

The jury had notified the judge Kamm's sister-in-law was seen mouthing words from the public gallery, which were then repeated by a defence witness.

Justice Hodgson today ruled the judge had acted properly by asking the jury to draw no inference from what they suspected was the coaching of a witness.

Oops.

Kamm is also awaiting sentencing following a separate guilty verdict on sex charges related to a different underage girl. He does seem to have been the busy little paedophile.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
