PAEDOPHILES must be made to serve longer jail sentences to keep children safe and create a real deterrent, says a man who suffered years of abuse as a child.
The victim – who tells his story for the first time in today’s JEP – has called for a review of the Royal Court’s sentencing policy for child sex offences after the news that the man who abused him decades ago has recently been jailed again, this time for sex crimes in Bulgaria.
He says that his abuser, Paul Renouf, served three years of a five-year sentence for abusing him and another child before being released in 2004. Last week Renouf was jailed again in Bulgaria for paying a poor family to let him abuse their young children.
