Nine years for child molester not enough

James Cardno’s actions have affected many people, not just the victims.

Re: “Tears, cheers as Surrey child molester jailed 9 years,” The Leader, April 18.

James Cardno’s actions have affected many people, not just the victims.

He took the boys’ lives away. They will never have the innocent lives they were leading.

He took my son away from the family. Many of the victims have become addicted to drugs, closed themselves in, are socially inept and suffer from depression.

The nine years is a long time for Mr. Cardno, but not long enough for his victims and families. We will never forget.
