Sex offender sentenced.

Post by Digger on Tue 09 Sep 2008, 6:42 pm

Guernsey Police have been describing some of the devastating effects experienced by victims of Eugene Hughes….
The 80-year-old was sentenced to 6 and a half years in prison and 5
years extended probation licence after pleading guilty to 7 counts of
indecent assault and 1 of unlawful sexual intercourse. The offences all
took place between 1987 and 1996. Police have released details of the
interviews they held with Hughes' victims, who are now adults. One said
she'd been stripped of her personality and felt wholly demoralised and
extremely frightened. Another told officers how as she got older her
depression and anxiety and the effects of what happened to her have got
worse.


I for one is glad he has been caught and dealt with.

When I used to take my son to chess at the Spenser Gerhold Hall in the middle 80's we had to wait for Hughes class to finish. One of my friend’s sons attended Hughes classes and I must say the judo moves he carried out against these young girls caused me worry, if I could see what was happening why then could others not. I did mention to someone at chess at the time and my mate but I was just ignored because Hughes had the respect of the parents then.............Those poor children. They should seek compensation from his estate.....

he hasn't been punished enough for what he has done.this vile ,evil old pervert should have his bits cut off very slowly with a rusty blade imo.seems very strange to me put a pervert in a prison so close to two schools.lock him up in brehon tower.

The cops who investigated the case do not have a clue with Nicolas saying in the local rag today 'he does not want to sensationalize the situation and make people believe that there is more of a problem'....Hughes was serial sex offender and those youngsters who attended his classes should come forwards if they have any info what so ever and if it is proven he committed more offences then he should be tried again...you then have two priests and his family covering for this low life peice of shit......I am ashamed to be catholic.......

how dare the Catholic church cover this up!.....he needs to be aware that covering a crime like this does no good for the church
I have just been though so many police checks to do a job woithin our church.i did moan about it but now am so pleased that at least we would have done our best to protect the children..and the training that goes with it will protect all with in the activities we offer,both for the children and for the adults

it isn't just the catholic church who covers up the filth of perverts.it is wide spread through all denominations imo.there are perverts in all walks of life.all i can say is i hope more people come forward and more perverts are brought to the courts.punishments should imo be a lot more than six and a half years. for some it will be too late as their abuser is dead.

In any church organisaion there should be the checks done .i know in our church we pay for any workers to be police checked ..no checks ,means no working with the children.even helpers have to be checked out to protect the children and anyone helping needs to abide n=by the rules

i agree about police checks kat.the problem arises if the abuser has never come to the attention of the police.

The problem is you could be sitting next to one of these perverts and not even know it . As you have seen in the world media some are / were respected people ,Pillars of their community so don't take any chances with your kids ,yes even on this island.

What p***es me off is these do gooders saying he didn't know what he was doing he can be rehabilitated ,rubbish to late for that 30 years would have been more apt. :x

He was supposed to be that pillar "Good Catholic upstanding man" at Church every Sunday, couldn't do enough to show how good a person he was...

As you say Digger, you never really know who you might be sitting next too....

Kat, are you saying that all members of your congregation are saints.......I bet there are those who are not…….. Sanctimonies I think. I would not trust our son with anyone from any church……..These people are everywnere, Police, Childrens Board, church, banks, sports bodies....... the list is endless.

I think it’s fair to say there are many many of those who call themselves Christians have massive social issues more then those who do not involve themselves with the normal day to day religion and cults over here in Gsy. Of course I am not suggesting you or anyone of your cult or church is a saint and yes of course I am not a saint either and I have faults, my point is those who call themselves Christians are far from it and the church protects sex offenders.....even yours.......

I am catholic...
I know the man in question and had a run in with him a few years ago over something he was being pompous about...
For some reason i never really liked him..I wasn't comfortable around him...he had shifty eyes..lol

I have to say i was surprised that both Canon Hetherington and Father Michael gave him character references....I am sure it was based on what they knew of the man..NOT for what he had committed which i am almost postive they knew nothing about....

I think he deserves to serve a far longer sentence!!!

I believe that the priests were out of order regardless of the type of reference they gave this horrible little prick. But there will always be those in the Catholic Church who will always make excuses for the behavior of the priests......

Hughes sentence does not represent his abuse but compared to others who have committed worse and got away with it his sentence is a good one......if anyone ever touched any child of mine I would kill them........
