This letter from Labour candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner should be widely read:
Wrongs are put right
Your correspondent Paul Gibson is right to point out how important the recent child sexual exploitation trial was at Sheffield Crown Court.
It was important for the survivors to get the justice that had been denied them in the past. It was important that any others contemplating similar grooming of young people should know the kind of sentences such criminal behaviour will receive. It was important for Rotherham to know that historic wrongs are being put right. It was important for South Yorkshire Police to show they really have learnt the lessons of past mistakes. All this builds confidence for other victims past or present to come forward and know they will be listened to. Some have already done so since the trial.
One trial does not a solution make?
