Plus a guilty plea helped. Out in 27 months apparently, might even serve some of it in the UK.

does he?

People lose all sense of perspective with anything like this, we don't even know the details of the case. "Attempted rape of a baby"….what exactly does that mean? did the baby fight him off? was it not physically possible? I don't know but what I do know is that attempting to rape a baby sounds pretty bad and that's all people hear.

Just goes to show that being a peado is the worst crime you can commit in our society.

understand your point bill but I don't think the judge is throwing numbers around without considering the severity of the case. There was a 17 minute video of him abusing a baby. Hes clearly done some pretty terrible things and the judge has sentenced him accordingly.

Also, this guy got life with 40yrs minimum for pre meditated murder of family.

"Quadruple murderer Anxiang Du will spend the next four decades behind bars after he was sentenced at Northampton Crown Court today."

Murder is still clearly a higher sentence. Watkins will serve a minimum of 2/3s of a 29 year sentence.
