Another offender caught by reinvestigation of DNA with new techniques. When Johnston was sentenced in the Auckland High Court in 1994, Justice Hillyer said in his sentencing remarks "I am of the view he is a dangerous man and should be kept in custody for a sufficiently long period to enable him to receive such treatment that will hopefully result in him coming back into the community without the danger of committing such offences".
Tougher sentencing is needed for hardcore recidivists and sexual predators like Johnston. We believe mandatory lengthy incarceration periods for the likes of Johnston is the best and only way to treat them.
