Letter: In Brief

Sir: Your report on Rhys Hughes being released into the community ("Dangerous paedophile, 65, is smuggled to freedom", 15 September) says that he has served six years of a 10-year-sentence. It also says that he refused treatment in prison. Is it too simplistic to suggest that if paedophiles refuse treatment they should have no chance of not serving their full term in jail.
