|Judge Esmond Faulks|
Of course none of us knows why the judge would postpone sentencing until the New Year, allowing this thug to spend Christmas at home, but the effect on the victim must have been devastating and this is my point! Does nobody in the Justice System think about the victim? Is it all about protecting the violent? My goodness she was paralysed and he continued to attack her!
The behaviour of this lout was so premeditated, so calculated and so callous that a life sentence should be the minimum. After all his victim has now got a life sentence and according to the report it could have been anyone unlucky enough to be passing by so why the delay?Apparently Judge Esmond Faulks adjourned the case to study pre-sentence reports! How long will that take?
It is not the first time that Judge Faulks has hit the headlines so perhaps he will this time do the decent thing. I will not hold my breath because most of them love the headline but consistently refuse to challenge the system which allows thugs to paralyse women and then spend Christmas at home!
