Is It, Y'know, Just Me?

Posted on the 14 January 2014 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth
From the BBC:-
On another occasion Mr Travis allegedly assaulted a female student after asking her to guard his camper van at Nottingham Polytechnic, where he was appearing as a DJ, between January 1983 and March 1984.

When Mr Travis came out of the van he grabbed her left breast, before saying "securi-titty", the prosecutor said. He later kissed the student before she ran away, after which she "felt stupid and humiliated".
First of all, it's all allegations, so may or may not be true, in the court etc
If he did these things, is this really worth prosecuting? Someone was a bit of an unfunny letch 30 years ago. Return a slap or knee to the groin and get on with your life. That's what girls did that I knew. She felt "stupid and humiliated"? So what? I've feel stupid and humiliated on a regular basis and within a day or two I move on.
Is it really going to be justice to give someone a criminal record and stick them on the sex offenders register  for that?
