Part of what he says is right. If he was the benchmark for doing time for such a crime, then there really wouldn't be any arguments. Read the Gazette and every other week someone is being let off with thousands of images made, and even worse crimes.

Not to defend Johnson, but it's one or the other. You can't make a pariah out of a celebrity and then not follow suit with John Davies from Skegness Street.

His sentence was just and fair, but I have encountered people through my job who have done worse and still get to live how they want to in the community.

I would also add that I have heard far more disturbing comments, in the name of 'banter,' from blokes in warehouses and canteens in previous employment.

Johnson's reputation can't sink much lower, but once again the mother of his child be dragged out and made to look an idiot (again) seeing as she appears to be OK with maintaining a relationship with the creep.

He's scum and got what he deserved, however, sex offence sentencing is a joke as mentioned on another thread on here earlier in the week, no consistency and parity between some crimes and others that most rational people would consider equally horrific

Stupid thing to say.

But I agree with Goat.

Literally dozens of Paedo's been let off without having to do jail time recently locally.

I've listed maybe half a dozen cases in the last fortnight.

I'd like to ask a serious question please.

Do people think that 'celebrity' offenders should get a stiffer sentence, due to the abuse of their status or should all offenders be treated equally?

What about Stiffer sentences for more well off Muslim men, due to their ability to shower young girls with gifts.

Lets not stop at that. Ugly people, lesser sentences than Beautiful People. Beautiful people may find grooming easier than John with one tooth from loftus.

He deserved to go to jail, but I don't see what the problem is with this video.

The thing is he's having what he thinks is a private conversation about his sentence, which I imagine most people in prison do as you'll be bitter about whatever sentence you get.

When your having what you think is a private conversation you say things you don't mean and wouldn't say in public. The video has also been edited we don't know what was cut.

What he did was completly wrong, he deserved to serve time, but he's been stitched up here.

Are we genuinely saying that making brash comments about rape and alluding to her 'asking for it' with the t!ts comment is okay because it's in a private conversation?

Locker room talk eh!

I've never been to prison and have no desire to, but I imagine much of what he came out with was bravado to ensure he survives in there.

"I've never been to prison and have no desire to, but I imagine much of what he came out with was bravado to ensure he survives in there."

This. He's stuck in a building full of other criminals, I think that I'd say a lot of things that I didn't mean in order to protect myself too.

Kind of agree with Pog but it's not on saying he "should have just raped her".

I dont think he really meant it. He said it flippantly like someone might say if you found a wallet and gave it back, then accused of stealing it, you might have said should have just kept it anyway. Cant think of a better example but you know what I mean. The issue is for me though is to say something like that flippantly about such a sensitive issue means he doesnt fully understand the severity of his crime and doesn't show remorse. I had a small amount of sympathy for the length of the prison term due to comparable cases but not anymore

I agree with all of that OneJobOnTeesside.

I had a girlfriend that used to accuse me of cheating even though i didn't so i would say "i wish i had now because i'm beating treated that way anyway" - of course, i didn't literally mean i wish i had but at least it would justify the way i was being treated.

But this is a much more sensitive issue so he shouldn't be so flippant about it but to me it seems he was saying it in that way because he feels his sentence is harsh.

Either way, he still deserves whatever he was sentenced. He broke the law and knew the danger involved but did it anyway so you can't then feel hard done by when you get punished. We all know there's no real consistency in sentences anyway but there's a way to avoid that, don't break the law, especially pursuing underage kids.

As long as sentences differ so widely, even when taking into account early guilty pleas and genuine remorse, those facing longer sentences will always feel aggrieved.

I'm sure there's people who get caught speeding doing 35mph in a 30mph who say that if they knew they'd get caught they'd have done more. Someone who's locked up for assault who might just punch someone might flippantly say to people "If I'd have know I was getting sent down I'd have gave them a good going over not just punched them". Do they mean it? Probably not.

He's still maintaining he just kissed her (which I personally don't believe) and that if he'd have known he was getting sent down for that long he'd have actually had sex with her than just kissing her. I can see the point he's making, but it's not appropriate given the age of the girl.

I just think he's already been sentenced (some would say excessively) and is serving his time. I wouldn't expect him in prison to be moping around saying they have the upmost respect for women and they're so very sorry, etc. He's going to put on a defiant front, you need to in order to survive in those environments. If you show weakness your life will be made hell.

The video is of no value. If it was of him confessing he lied in court and did more with the girl then yes I see the value in this sting. But this doesn't do any of that. We know Johnson is a creep and a liar this video adds nothing it's just an excuse for cr@ppy sensationalist journalism.

I think he's saying he might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb i.e. "If I got this sentence then I might as well have done it anyway".

For what it's worth I think he was well over-sentenced too

'I think he's saying he might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb i.e. "If I got this sentence then I might as well have done it anyway".'

Yeah I agree. Much as I can't stand him, he's not actually saying he should and would have raped her, he's saying he might as well have considering the length of the sentence.

Long boring story short....... I was once beaten up by a guy. And when I say beaten up I mean he went to town on me, I'm only little 5,7ish maybe and he's a huge fella goes to the gym, boxes and everything. Knocked me out cold by stamping on my head a number of times when I was on the floor after what felt like 100000 punches to the face, totally unprovoked. I didntt fight back in anyway shape or form, just protected myself as much as possible..... anyway at the time I did what I felt was right and reported it to the police. 1 year later it went to court, his word against mine, nothing got done about it.

To this day I still feel bitter about it because justice wasn't served, when I get asked about what happened or if it's ever brought up in conversation. Honestly I have said to people 'next time it happens I'm going to fight back, whoever it is' may as well eh? If I'm going to have the $hit kicked out of me and our justice system isn't going to do a thing about it. I may as well coz what have I got to lose?

I can see where Adam is coming from, sort of

I think he has every right to feel aggrieved.

Even after a second offence some get spared jail .

I don't agree with what jonno did, but his sentence is a joke let's be honest. Any normal person gets a suspended sentence and it's forgot about pretty much. He gets 6 years and his life pretty much taken away because he will probably not play football again.

Yes it's his own fault in a way, but if I was him, I would be absolutely raging and would take it to the highest court possible and fight it as much as he can as equality is clearly a big issue with this case, that link above is a joke.

Leading questions and the video is hugely edited you can guarantee if he said anything at all against the narrative it will have been cut out.
