A more than two year investigation into an alleged offence from twenty three years ago.  That's something.

We had a 74 year old in jail in 2017. His charges were two counts of Rape from 1974. Not sexual assault. Rape. Got four years.

Probably had to start with a fair bit of archival work to identify individuals and potential witnesses, followed by a lengthy process of tracking people down and getting statements. As a very cold case it would have probably been tackled intermittently as time allowed. I’m not that surprised by a 20 month investigation on something that old.

That fact that charges were laid is surprising and shows the degree of confidence they were able to build in the allegations.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
