That'll teach him!

How should the justice system deal with sex offenders? Longer sentences perhaps?

Nah, Old Bailey Judge Jeremy Roberts seems to have come up with the ultimate deterrent to sexual assault - have the perpetrator write a letter of apology to the victim!! Certainly, all rapists will look at this ruling as a ... FUCKING GREEN LIGHT TO RAPE. Judge Roberts, you sir, are a complete moron.
