it difficult to comprehend the implications of what he has done”.

or 14, and no doubt all of the difficulties of growing up, in terms of
hormones and sexual approach of a teenager, you would have known that
what you did was wrong.
“This is I suppose a real classic example
of what sadly happens when one person within a family commits offences
on other family members. It just tears the family apart.
