      Stuart Hall has been jailed for 15 months after admitting indecent assaults on 13 girls.

      I understand he is 83 years old and such but do you feel that the sentence he has been given is enough?

      Not long enough for me - he was 'lucky' to have gone undetected for so long ...

      I know what you mean Pat, they say he got as long as he did because of his age but I personally do not feel that should have come into it. I get he has been ill of late and such but he committed those crimes and made those girls lives hell, doesn't seem right!

      I heard on the news last night that the reason for the short sentence was because of the dates the crimes were committed - 15 months - 'would' have been the sentence 'then' !
      They are looking now to get this restriction over-turned .....

      I heard they were looking to get it over-turned and I really do hope that they do. Just because he committed the crimes then and is only admitting now does not give him the right to only serve way less than he should do.

      Chances of dying in 15 months when you're already 83 is pretty good odds in Vegas, especially when you're locked up and immobile. Stop moving at 83 and you're most likely to stop moving permanently ..... if you know what I mean.

      Glad to see that they have increased his sentence however to be honest I still do not feel it is enough at all for what he did.

      I agree - we will have to settle for it tho' - pity it took so long to get him. At least, I hope, people like him will not have the cover of celeb status to shield them in future .....
