Magistrates in Haut de la Garrene Abuse Scandal Becoming a Cruel Joke

~Haut de la Garenne

Sickeningly, but not surprisingly, Gordon Wateridge, 77, a former warder at Haut de la Garenne, charged with assaulting three girls at a former children's home in Jersey has been bailed by magistrates for a month while the charges against him are clarified.

Prosecutors have been given 21 days to produce all evidence against him.

Wateridge has not entered a plea to the charges, was remanded on conditional bail until 4 August.

When Bailhache and Walker complain of negative press – well, if the shoe fits, wear it - you are truly a laughing-stock!

"Sickeningly, but not surprisingly"

That says it all right there.
