After being released from prison he and his wife were moved to various other congregations and ended up in Birmingham. He has 'done his time' and was reinstated last week - please remember that this piece of scum consistently denied any wrongdoing and showed no remorse at all. I spoke to the detective inspector who lead the case against him, a professional man who knows a liar when he's dealing with one unlike most JW's.
Now get this. James Barratts long suffering wife who stood by his side throught the whole sordid affair lived long enough to see him welcomed back into their new congregation and then died of a heart attack. She was a large hearted woman in her 50's and didn't deserve any of this. The strain she had been under the past five years finally proved too much. She leaves a son and daughter - both fine young people.
Rest in peace Gill'.
