An Indian computer expert was convicted of the rape of two Women, Kapil Garg, 34, originally from India but living in Whitefriar Place in Dublin 8, was also sentenced to 12 years in jail. The Judge Mr Justice Barry White told him that "he could have spared his victims a further ordeal if he had not waited until the eve of sentencing to accept responsibility for his crimes".
Mr Justice White also said "he could not ignore Garg's bad character and his previous attack on a woman in the US for which he spent time in the Los Angeles County Jail" The judge said that incident would most likely have been a sex attack if Garg had not been interrupted.
Now the question id like to ask is why after considering all the facts why was Mr Garg given 3 years suspended off his sentence? The Judge pointed out that he pleaded Not Guilty and failed to accept responsibility for his crimes, while putting the victims through further torment. He also made reference to his previous conviction in the US. Why was he shown mercy and given 3 years suspended off his sentence? He showed no mercy towards his victims?
The judiciary have a shocking tolerance for sex crimes in this country, Mr Garg will serve maybe 5 years then be released. Will he be deported when he is released? Its time the safety of the community and serving justice were paramount in this country and a mandatory term of 30 years for rapists was introduced.
