Was the 6 year sentence given to Adam Johnson too long or not?
Yesterday at Bradford Crown Court Judge Jonathon Rose imposed a sentence
of 6 years imprisonment upon Adam Johnson, the famous Sunderland
Football Player for offences of grooming, and sexual activity with a 15
year old girl, who was previously a devoted fan of his. The question is,
was the sentence appropriate to the crime?
