why ?
its not like he write for children.
once some one comes out of prison the aim should be to reintegrate them back into society while trying to ensure they do not re-offend.
anything else and you may as well advocate the death penalty

I would not be happy with someone exploiting their fame from their crimes, but ghost writing is not doing that. If this chap sentenced today is a plumber or electrician should he be allowed work?

If you want to read his flowery verbiage set up a GoFundMe for him. Last I checked there wasn’t an age gate on the sports sections of websites or newspapers either.

He’s thankfully toxic to any major outlet now but he was ghost writing for lovely lads like Cusack while hiding behind his mental illness excuse after being charged. He can reintegrate however he wants to but he shouldn’t be given the platform that previously contributed to allowing him to sexual abuse children. It’s not complex.

Perhaps you would be kind enough to explain how his previous ghost writing activities allowed him to him to sexual abuse children?

These are really weak attempts at gotcha posts, Armaghniac.

so no answer then.
he would not need as go fund me page if he was allowed to continue on his totally non Sexual related writing activities .
instead would you prefer he lived a state sponsored life on the Dole due to being unable to continue Working,

Does his “mental illness” only let him write as a profession?

Was he not ahead of Tony anyway? Wrecked more threads than him anyway. At least Tony tended to stick to the same threads most of the time. Syf is more scatter gun.

I don't think any publication would employ him and I certainly wouldn't want to read his musings and would boycott any entity that published them.

being from Roscommon he has a head start

Agree 100%. He'll never have a Lockerroom type scenario again.

But ghostwriting will be an avenue open to him, assuming it stays in the dark.

It’s an avenue open to him only because it is hidden. It’s akin to calling a horse burger a beef burger, I don’t want to unwittingly support the writing career of a child abuser but I have no confidence that people like Cusack and David Walsh won’t crawl back out from the woodwork when the press has died down and Humphries spins them a sob story.

Given his ridiculously short sentence and the nonsense judicial reasoning, it would be an utter insult to the victim and child abuse victims in general.

I think people should be encouraged to work after a jail sentence. Clearly, someone could not work as a teacher etc, but can in a job where there is no contact with children.

Humphries was very late to admit guilt and refused treatment so unless he changes his tune I wouldn't support rehabilitation.

the RTE Producer who was entrapped in Yorkshire was sentenced yesterday. Paedophilia seems to happen at the end of a long meltdown.
