Clare Dowse was instructed to represent a sex offender described by a judge as posing a very high risk to children, after the Defendant had pleaded guilty to 14 child sex offences while unrepresented.
The Defendant had persuaded two women to commit offences against their own children for his own gratification, having entered what was described as online sado-masochistic relationships with the women.
The judge imposed a life sentence, with a minimum term of six years and 135 days before he can be considered for parole.
Clare was instructed in this extremely demanding case by Harry Price-Smith of Rowe Sparkes, Bournemouth.
