Former broadcaster Kevin Milne joins the show to talk about the mentally ill New Zealander sentenced to prison for 7 years for kissing a woman on the cheek in a public place.

Daniel Clinton Fitzgerald, 47, tried to kiss a stranger on Cuba St in Wellington and in the struggle made the unwanted contact on her cheek.

The woman's friend tried to intervene and Fitzgerald pushed her up against a shop window.

Convicted of the indecent assault and with two prior convictions for serious violent offences, the three strikes law required that the maximum penalty be handed down.
