If, as you say, you were duped by BH why not tell others the details so they can learn from your experience.
he didn't dupe me!
the point I am now making is this...........
you may be some smart alec semi retired architect breathing Radon gas in Cornwall, but you clearly know nothing about tennis, butch heffernan or this case otherwise you wouldn't have just popped up out of thin air on this forum seemingly defending Mr Heffernan and his rights.
all too often these days magistrates (and rightly so) are constantly erring on the side of caution in respect of the presumption of innocence..which is why BAIL is often granted, even in cases involving sexual offending.
Take for example the very recent case of the BBC ACTOR (OLDER TOFFEE NOSE TWIT TYPE ) downloading sick kiddie porn.........then telling all sorts of lies to save himself.....he was granted bail.
often when serious allegations are made against another person with little or no supporting evidence Bail is granted, allegations are investigated and often a judgement call is required by the CPS as to the likelihood of securing a conviction on a case by case basis.
however in this case there was no bail, that doesn't imply guilt, but it usually tends to indicate the possession of evidence or information that may or may not carry weight during his trial, especially bearing in mind the chronic overcrowding of prisons and the recent strike action by prison officers.
it wouldn't be proper to speculate what type of evidence is in the possesion of the CID.........but I think it must be good and I really do hope he gets locked away for more than a few months
I guess we will have to wait and see, but there are many on this forum who do not appreciate you "popping up here" out of thin air like this defending mr heffernans rights.............so please do us all a favour and fuck off.
