Torture-obsessed paedophile who kept 'how to kidnap young girls scrapbook' has sentence slashed to just THREE YEARS

Post by Guest on 05.08.11 16:58

A pervert with an 'uncontrollable obsession with child pornography and torture' has had his sentence slashed by the Court of Appeal.
Anthony Martin Milsom, 62, had newspaper cuttings relating to high-profile child murder inquiries including Milly Dowler, Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman, Sophie Hook and missing Madeleine McCann.
Police found an exercise book entitled 'how to kidnap young girls'.
Milsom had been given an indeterminate sentence by Mold Crown Court in March this year after pleading guilty to a catalogue of sexual offences.
An indeterminate sentence meant he could only be released when the parole board was satisfied he was no longer a danger to the public.
But after an appeal by his solicitor Geraint Jones, Milsom's sentence has now been reduced to three and a half years, less 155 days spent on remand.
Mr Justice Simon, sitting at the Court of Appeal with Lord Justice Moses and Judge Francis Gilbert, overturned the original sentence.
Mr Jones said: 'We accept that they were sad and unpleasant offences. Justice demands fairness in sentence and I formed the view that the sentence was unfair in that it was excessive, that there was an element of knee jerk reaction on the part of the public and the court.
'I do not minimise the offences, they were unpleasant, but it's an issue of fairness.'
