I cannot conceivably comment on a Judge's decision on this monster, but let's face it, he has ruined nine kids lives.
Can he even know how much effect it had on those who had to see him go free???

I don't!

Quote:
A FORMER scout master who committed acts of gross indecency and indecent assault on young boys and girls walked free from court today.

Pensioner Glyndwr Jones committed 26 sexual acts on nine youngsters who thought of him as a grandfather figure.

Some offences dated back more than 20 years and some around the year 2000 but all were committed while he was living in a flat in the Trecenydd area of Caerphilly.

However, the incidents were only brought to light in 2006 when two sisters confided their lengthy and well hidden secret to their mother.

Gwent Police then carried out what they called a complex and lengthy investigation which was hindered by Jonesí medical condition with the onset of dementia.

Jones, who is now 71, had denied the charges and was initially said to be unfit to plea.

But in an unusual legal move, Jones was deemed by a jury to have committed 26 sexual acts after the case was proved against him at Newport Crown Court in March.

Under that legal procedure Jones could not be jailed.

Today, his honour Judge David Morris sentenced Jones to a 12 month supervision order.

Judge Morris told Jones he had committed very serious acts of a sexual nature on young children over a number of years.

The judge also handed out a sexual offences prevention order.

This means Jones cannot have contact with any person under the age of 17 unless they are accompanied by an adult.

Jones was also told to register on a sexual offendersí register for five years.

Jones had worked as a scout master for First Caerphilly Scouts many years ago but police said after the case that there had been no complaints received about his conduct while he was working with the scouts movement.

Detective constable Angela Kiff, based at Bargoed police station, said: "I would like to pay tribute to both the victims and witnesses who came forward and gave evidence in court which was an extremely distressing and difficult thing for them to do and one which was handled with great dignity.

"The courtís conclusion in the case of Glyndwr Jones today was a finding of guilt.

"I hope this gives the victims some closure when they try to continue with their lives after being subjected to such abuse."
