#AceNewsReport – Jan.15: A Cambridgeshire child abuser has had his sentence increased after it was referred to the Court of Appeal by the Solicitor General, Alex Chalk QC MP.
#AceDailyNews Court Report: Sex abuser has sentence increased following ULS referral: The offender, who cannot be named for legal reasons, repeatedly abused a young child and attempted to cover up his actions in multiple ways, including forcing her to delete text messages he sent to her indicating intended sexual activity according to Attorney General’s Office

#AceNewsReport – Dec.25: It’s the season of goodwill and Londoners did not disappoint with their generosity towards our 2021 appeal, which drew to a close on Thursday, 23 December.
#AceDailyNews MET UPDATE Annual Christmas Tree Appeal Report: A whopping 17,276 presents have been delivered to children, who would have otherwise received nothing, in time for Christmas – and that’s all thanks to you….This year was extra special as the Met marks 10 years of this important appeal.
24 December 2021 10:00
The majority of presents purchased this year have now been delivered by employees from local authorities all over London, with support from officers and Met volunteers, and in a ‘Covid secure’ manner.
Yesterday, the Commissioner visited social workers in Bexley as they wrapped gifts ready to deliver to children in the borough.
Commissioner Cressida Dick, said: “The Christmas Tree Appeal is a cause very close to my heart and I am hugely grateful to everyone who donated this year, especially given the trying times we have all faced during the pandemic.
“No child should ever have to go without and, as ever, Londoners really have rallied to support this wonderful cause and ensure Christmas is special for all children in our city. Each and every year I am truly humbled by the kindness and generosity shown by my colleagues and the public, and this year is no exception.
“Thanks to you, we can spread some festive cheer and make sure thousands of children across London, who would not have received a present at Christmas, have something special to open on the day.”
Over the past decade, kind-hearted Londoners have been donating money and buying gifts for vulnerable and disadvantaged children across the Capital’s 32 boroughs.
During that time, a staggering 133,645 Christmas presents have been delivered to children, aged from one-week to 17 years old, being cared for by foster parents, in residential care homes, refuges, hospitals or from low-income families.
Kindness goes a long way and this has certainly been the case with our appeal. Having first launched in 2011, it has only grown in popularity. In its first year, 230 gifts were gathered for London’s children and this snowballed to 22,000 gifts by 2019.
It began with one tree outside New Scotland Yard being decorated with gift tags which provided information on how to buy a present for a child in care. The public were encouraged to take a tag and buy a present, which they then handed in to their local Met police station. Officers then ensured the presents were distributed to children across the Capital.
For the past two years, due to Covid-19, we have had to do things a little differently and take the appeal online to help keep everyone safe while still making sure children have something to open for Christmas.
The Commissioner added: “I am incredibly proud of what the Met’s Christmas Tree Appeal has achieved over the past 10 years. Including 2021, we have delivered well over 130,000 gifts which is phenomenal. To think of all those smiles is a gift in itself and we couldn’t have done it without the public and our colleagues in the Childhood Trust, Local Authorities, the NHS and those who run care homes and refuges across the City. For that, I wish to express my sincere gratitude. Thank you.”
After all gifts are distributed, all remaining funds raised through the appeal will be directed to local youth projects operating essential support services for disadvantaged children and young people across all London boroughs.
#AceNewsReport – Dec.22: The 18 year-old was given a two-year suspended sentence last month for sexually assaulting a woman in her own home in Witham: When his phone was seized by officers, they found that he had videoed the assault: Further videos were also found of him assaulting an underage teenage girl at a separate location.
#AceDailyNews Court Report: Man convicted of sexual assault has his sentenced increased from 2yrs (suspended) to 3yrs in jail on Wed.Dec.16: 2021:
At the court of appeal on Wednesday 16 December, Lord Justice Males, Lord Justice Gross, and His Honour Judge Lucraft QC agreed that the original sentence was too lenient.
The original suspended sentence was quashed and replaced with a three-year custodial sentence.
The 18 year-old was ordered to surrender that day to begin his sentence immediately.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Jon Nottage said:
“This man is nothing short of a predator.
“He deliberately targeted those he knew when they were most vulnerable, with a complete disregard for the lasting trauma he would cause.
“Although no sentence will be able to change his actions, I hope both survivors will now be able to start the next chapter in their lives knowing he is rightfully behind bars.”

Detective Inspector Phil Ryan said:
” The use of firearms on our streets is a reckless and incredibly dangerous, and we share the shock and disappointment the community will feel this morning hearing this news.
“Thankfully, while serious, the victim will recover from his injuries. But the consequences of firing a gun in a residential area could have been much worse.
“We’re keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, or saw or heard anyone acting suspiciously in the area before or after 3.05am.
“You may live nearby or have been passing the area at the time it happened on foot or in a vehicle. Any information you have, or dashcam or CCTV footage, could prove vital in finding out what happened and, crucially, who the offenders are.
“We have seen a decrease in firearms incidents over the past two years, and we’re determined to keep preventing them from happening so that our communities can continue to live and work free from the fear of such incidents.
“Information from the public has helped us take weapons off the streets and put offenders before the courts. If you tell us what you know about this incident, we will take positive action and make Merseyside safer.”

#AceNewsReport – Dec.11: This is a travesty of justice. By allowing this appeal, the High Court has chosen to accept the deeply flawed diplomatic assurances given by the US that Assange would not be held in solitary confinement in a maximum security prison. The fact that the US has reserved the right to change its mind at any time means that these assurances are not worth the paper they are written on.
#AceDailyNews says this is a US/UK: “Travesty of justice” as extradition appeal fails to recognise that it would be unsafe for Julian #Assange to be sent to the US
If extradited to the US, Julian Assange could not only face trial on charges under the Espionage Act but also a real risk of serious human rights violations due to detention conditions that could amount to torture or other ill-treatment. “The US government’s indictment poses a grave threat to press freedom both in the United States and abroad. If upheld, it would undermine the key role of journalists and publishers in scrutinizing governments and exposing their misdeeds would leave journalists everywhere looking over their shoulders.”
The US extradition request is based on charges directly related to the publication of leaked classified documents as part of Julian Assange’s work with Wikileaks. Publishing information that is in the public interest is a cornerstone of media freedom and the public’s right to information about government wrongdoing. It is also protected under international human rights law and should not be criminalized.
Julian Assange is the first publisher to face charges under the Espionage Act.

#AceNewsReport – Nov.24: James Dean Clark, 31, of Warmley, South Gloucestershire, inflicted injuries on his young baby, Sean Clark, which resulted in his death. On the morning of 14 January 2018, the child’s mother found the victim unresponsive in his cot.
#AceDailyNews Court of Appeal Report: Father who murdered his 39-day-old baby has sentence increased: A post-mortem examination concluded baby Sean had sustained a total of 74 fractures to his ribs which had been inflicted on at least three separate occasions. The injuries were consistent with the baby having been shaken violently shortly before his death. While some of the injuries were recent, there was evidence others were not and had begun to heal.
On 24 September, at Bristol Crown Court, Clark was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 15 years.
The Solicitor General, Alex Chalk QC MP, referred Clark’s sentence to the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme.
Today (Friday 19 November) the Court of Appeal found his original sentence to be unduly lenient and increased it to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 18 years.
Speaking after the hearing, the Solicitor General, Alex Chalk QC MP said: “This was a deeply upsetting and disturbing case, involving an extremely vulnerable victim. Clarke grossly abused his position of trust and his actions stole the life of an innocent child he should have been protecting. It is only right the sentence has been increased to reflect the severity of the crime.”
Det Supt James Riccio, the Senior Investigating Officer, who attended the Court of Appeal earlier today, said afterwards:
” This increase in sentence better reflects the gravity of the heinous crime this man committed against his own 39-day-old son.
“It’s hard to put into words how devastating the loss of a child is, especially when it’s as a result of such a cold and callous act.
“Our thoughts are very much with all those who loved Sean and I hope they feel a greater sense of justice now the sentence against his murderer has been increased.”
#AceNewsReport – Nov.23: Despite the efforts of doctors at the hospital, the boy died a short time later. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers: While formal identification awaits, next of kin have been informed and the deceased is Jermaine Cools, 14, from the local area: A post-mortem examination gave Jermaine’s cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Officers attended but no suspects or victims were found: Shortly after 19:00hrs, police attended a south London hospital after a 14-year-old boy self-presented with stab wounds.
” While our investigation continues to make good progress I am still appealing to anyone who witnessed this fight in the vicinity of West Croydon station on Thursday evening to come forward.
