To prevent child abuse, we must try to understand the inconceivable
I cannot fathom child sexual abuse. At all.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I can get my head around other heinous crimes.
But with more than 10 years' experience covering criminal trials - from speeding fines in the District Court to callous murders in the Central Criminal Court - I've almost always been able to discern a sense of cause and effect between the offender and the offence.
