CONVICTED sex attacker protests his innocence while on the run in an online blog.
Northumbria police continue to hunt the convicted sex attacker Agustin Fernandez who was sentenced last March at Newcastle Crown Court for a total of 13 offences. He was found guilty of five counts of rape and six counts of sexual assault.
Convicted Fernandez maintains his innocence even as police continue to hunt him. He has spoken out in his online blog and it is believed that he so far managed to avoid justice and prison by fleeing the country. Fernandez is in his early 60s and previously he was a lecturer at Newcastle University. In a blog that he wrote a New Year’s Day he spoke about 2020 and how life is treating him.
Fernandez said, “2020 was not only the worst year of my life. It was a year that visited on me things that are absurdly incompatible with my life – the way I lived it, the way I respected it, the way I worked it and loved it. It crowned three years of travesty, injustice and human devastation.”
“As I saw off the last few hours of that blighted year, I felt, of course, relief that it was over and that I was still standing. And I felt about my life what Jimmy Nail felt about his hometown, which happens to be also my town of adoption.”
The Bolivian born composer still maintains his innocence even as police search for him in order to enforce the 23 years in jail that he was sentenced to.
