Teiritzamna: plcow: My thought is that they will, except for the most extreme cases, use this to tack on to sentencing as an adder when another more serious crime was inflicted. i.e. when the kid is physically abused, now they can add jail time by charging under this law as well.Yeah, i'm figuring its one of those catch-as-catch-can laws that ends up just being used as a sentencing modification, or a fall back, lesser included charge. Which makes some sense in the US, but from what i heard in the UK they dont really do plea bargaining, so it will have less practical effect.

The Name: Still creeps me the hell out just thinking about it.
