Predator or prey? The judge, the barrister, a 13-year-old victim and a media furore
On Monday 5 August, Neil Wilson, 41, was sentenced by the Crown Court sitting at Snaresbrook. It is reported that Wilson admitted two counts of making extreme pornographic images and one count of sexual activity with a child. When sentencing Wilson to eight months' imprisonment suspended, it seems that the judge, HHJ Peters QC, referred to the 13-year-old female victim as 'predatory.' Unfortunately, this is a case where sentencing remarks are not available, and so only the media reports are available. The barrister representing the Crown Prosecution Service, Robert Colover, is reported to have said to the court: "The girl is predatory in all her actions and she is sexually experienced."
