On the 20th of October, 2016, a 59 year old man called John Smith invited a 15 year old girl, who he did not know, into his van on the pretext of asking her for directions. Once she was in his van, he took out his penis and began masturbating in front of her. Later that day, he did the same thing again. Mr. Smith has four children of his own. He was in court this morning to be sentenced, before Judge Martin Nolan. The Journal.ie has the details, with emphasis added:
The handiwork of Chief Federal Magistrate John Pascoe – witness bribing, price fixing, succumbing to blackmail to conceal a crime and lying to shareholders etc. Is there anything this man cannot do?

John Pascoe was appointed Chief Federal Magistrate of the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia on the 14th July 2004 by his good mate the former Australian Prime Minister John Howard.
John Pascoe’s shady conduct has been written about before to some degree in the press but to the best of my knowledge not to the detail that I am about to get into.
