In the dock today is a frightened and bewildered 83-year-old man answering for the touching - no more, no less - of all of 13... victims over a quarter of a century ago

I know there's probably been a thread about this (couldn't see it) and DiS is probably bored of the whole famous paedo thing, but...
I'm usually pretty lenient with the defendant and the concoctions of their briefs' in most matters, but this line of defence where the crime can't be as bad because it's only 13 kids he touched rather than Savile's 1300 seems mind bogglingly daft. I mean you could use that for anything. "I only stole £10k your honour, compared to Biggs' millions that's just nothing"
