(AP) — Prosecutors are telling a jury that a Virginia man accused of killing three Alexandria residents over the span of a decade wanted revenge against what he perceived as the city's elite after losing a child custody case. The defense says the government case lacks direct evidence and that Severance merely looks suspicious because he is mentally ill.
Judge Tim Mousley QC said that the case was so exceptional that he could go beyond the usual sentencing guidelines. The boy’s father maintained she knew his rightful age.
He imposed a six month jail term suspended for two years with supervision and said she must register as a sex offender for seven years.
British anti-child abuse charity National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) was outraged by the light sentence.
The judge gave Hatt a suspended sentence on the grounds that she was “immature” while her victim was unusually mature, which “narrows the arithmetic age gap”. But, according to local media, the man said his son was “fully up for this experience”, and said his son considered the experience “a notch on his belt”.

A woman's beauty is supposed to be her grand project and constant insecurity. We're meant to shellac our lips with five different glosses, but always think we're fat. Beauty is Zeno's paradox. We should endlessly strive for it, but it's not socially acceptable to admit we're there. We can't perceive it in ourselves. It belongs to the guy screaming "nice tits."
Saying "I'm beautiful," let alone charging for it, breaks the rules.
