Man gets off completely Scot=free for raping a 12 year old girl, and that this result gives such a wrong message to men, in a world in which girls are never considered too young anyway. I'm enraged!

It's obscene and makes a mockery of all statutory rape convictions where "she looked old enough, your honour" was the defence. Will there be a rush of appeals? The judge should be sacked IMO.

I doubt that there will be any appeals due to this as he was found guilty
