Is prison right for aged offenders?
I HOLD no brief for the actions of Rolf Harris, but vindictive media treatment and claims that a six-year sentence for an 84-year-old is too lenient are alarming.
The fact is we are locking away a growing number of infirm, confused old men.
Elsewhere in Europe, sex offenders over 70 are given house arrest and a similar sentence is surely appropriate for geriatrics who no longer pose a threat.
