sentence and reflects the nature and the scope of the offences carried out by
Maloney over a period of time. I hope that this sends out a message to other
people that we will take robust action to find the people responsible for
committing offences such as this and putting them before the courts. I hope this

his actions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the witnesses
