The British SUN tabloid is to sober news reporting what a caramel frappucino is to healthy food, but here’s a sad story from its pages: JUDGE DREDD artist Ron Smith is on trial for abusing a 13-year-old girl back in the ’80s.
Smith, 80 – who drew the futuristic cop cartoon for 2000AD magazine – was said to have assaulted the girl over three years in the 1980s.
Smith acted out a string of sick fantasies in the guise of “teaching” her – even role-playing a knifepoint rape, Guildford Crown Court heard.
The woman, now 39, went to police last year.
Smith, of Godalming, Surrey, denies rape and indecent assault.
