Yes, I know he wasn’t tried on these offences before:
The black cab rapist John Worboys faces spending the rest of his life behind bars after pleading guilty to a further string of assaults on women.
The 62-year-old, who was jailed in 2009 for 19 sex attacks on 12 women, admitted on Thursday drugging another four women he had picked up in his cab.
Worboys appeared at the Old Bailey via video link from Wakefield prison, to plead guilty to two counts of administering a stupefying or overpowering drug with intent to commit rape or indecent assault.
It’s not double jeopardy, because he wasn’t tried for these offences. But still, can they do that? Or, when first tried, are you supposed to say “there was some other stuff Guv'”?
Because the thing, at the very least, seems to make a mockery of serving sentences concurrently, doesn’t it? And if they can do this in such a hard case, then don’t we end up with bad law? We’re charging you with fiddling your recycling, Then after conviction they come back and try you again for doing it the previous week?
