Julia Hartley-Brewer on the Ched Evans case (BBC Question Time, January 2015)

Following the welcome acquittal of Ched Evans, we’ve had an increase of hits on this (video, 17:26), an extract from an episode of Question Time in January 2015. Ched Evans, then recently released from prison after serving two and a half years of a five year prison sentence, had been seeking to return to professional football. This is an extract from my original description:

I was interested to watch her (Julia Hartley-Brewer’s) contribution to last Thursday’s Question Time, in which a lady in the audience asked the following question:

“After serving his sentence for rape, should footballer Ched Evans be given a chance to continue with his career?”

To my mind, Julia’s response was the only one from any of the five panelists which demonstrated intellect, fair-mindedness, and compassion.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
