Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

"convicted of digitally penetrating".

That is some rough terminology.

Apparently (according to the Daily Mail - make of that what you will) the judge had to give Johnson a telling off for joking around with a security guard in court. The guy is a complete shit sack and I hope he gets the longest sentence possible.

i agree, but these sex cases seem to get away with everything, 5 to 10 years it said on news

There is no way he is getting more than 3 years.

He'll be out in 18 months, however I'm not sure he'll be back on a football pitch again.

He'll be back once out, some Championship side desperate for Premier League glory will forget their morals and take a punt on him. If scum like Lee Hughes and Luke McCormick can get a gig, he definitely will.

There's a fundamental difference though. Neither Hughes or McCormick got behind the wheel and thought 'I know.... Killing someone might be a laugh'

Evans and Johnson did what they did deliberately.

And there's a different atmosphere around sexual offences too. If a plumber killed someone in a car crash you would be demand that they are banned from being a plumber. But you might not want a sex offender loitering in your bathroom!

Both Hughes and McCormick denied what they did and fought it as far as they could. They took lives away from their victims families. Deliberate or not, their crimes are far worse than Johnsons in my eyes. I'm not defending Johnson, he's scum and should go away for a very long time. The comparison with Evans is inappropriate as well, he is a convicted rapist, Johnson was 'only' found guilty of sexual touching.

To me, killing someone whilst drunk and then running away and denying it is infinitely worse than touching up a 15 year old.

Really? Why not, is there not a debate to be had?

i just think trying to quantify pain, impact, grief, trauma, intention, etc, is not particularly helpful in discussions like these.

So how else do we quantify the tariff for crimes like these?

i don't know, but preferably not by a single person on a football messageboard informed by a rudimentary understanding of a handful of high-profile cases.

What was the purpose of the thread then? Surely a thread on Adam Johnson was only ever going to head this way?
