A Fair Trial.......


Brisbane District Court Judge, Hugh Botting has released convicted child molester, Dennis Ferguson from prison dropping pending charges against him using the reason that he will not receive a fair trial due to previous convictions for molesting 3 children in a motel back in 1988 for which he was jailed for 14 years. The charges that were dropped related to him allegedly sexually abusing a 5 year old girl in her home in November 2005. The judge says it is unlikely to find an objective jury. Dennis Ferguson has been re-located to a residence where police say no children are in the near vicinity and he is being monitored by them. Judge Botting further stated the prosecution of Dennis Ferguson was relying on the evidence of the 5 year old girl who may have him confused with another convicted sex offender with whom she had contact with.
Many have heard of Dennis Ferguson and and witnessed on television how this creepy, disgusting piece of filth rants, raves and generally conducts himself. Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence before guilt in a court of law and Dennis Ferguson should be afforded these rights as well re: the dropped charges. He should have no problem standing up and proving his innocence IF he has done nothing wrong. It is appalling that the charges were dropped because IF he is guilty, then he gets away with it. Queensland's Attorney General will appeal the courts decision. Whether or not he is guilty of the charges involving the 5 year old, for his previous crimes of child sexual abuse, he is still a waste of oxygen and nothing more than the pile of dog shit I stepped over this morning.

It seems to be the same everywhere.

If you saw the pathetic sentences nonces get in this country, you'd be shocked.

Yes Crushed is right our sentencing is all out of proportion for the crimes...

I can understand why vigilantes exist and it isn't fair to assume guilt on different charges until the case has been heard, yes I don't think he would get an impartial jury but would be better to be heard and put forward your case than let the public think you guilty.
