If you remember, a few days ago we informed you about a stunning judicial event in London. A 24-year old medical student from Oxford, Miss Lavinia Woodward, had been accused by her former boyfriend of stabbing and wanting to murder him, the events clearly audible in a 911 call and via pictures of the victim.
Whilst the victim was lying on the ground bleeding, she also hurled a laptop, a glass and a jam jar (how British) at him.
In a stunning turn, the judge handling the case was apparently taken by aspiring heart surgeon Miss Woodward’s, shall we say, ‘looks’ that he decided it would be very detrimental to her career where she to be imprisoned at the young age of 24 and therefore decided she would only get a ten month suspended sentence after admitting she had indeed stabbed her boyfriend, Mr. Thomas Fairclough.
The statement in court was interpreted as “too brainy for jail”, underlining once more the existence of a class system in the UK <i>or did you think studying at Oxford was cheap?<i/>.
The resulting public anger over this judgment of a clearly guilty person has now had some unfortunate consequences for the judge himself. The UK’ Conduct Investigations Office said last night: “The JCIO can confirm they have received a complaint against His Honour Judge Ian Pringle QC.”
Any findings on the matter will be published online and not discussed with the press, added a Court spokesman.
Miss Woodward has since gone into hiding and her family has refused to give any comment. Since pictures of her social media accounts were widespread in the press days after the judgment, she has decided to close her respective Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr accounts. From the pictures, it was clear the girl was into kinky stuff.
Campaigners for equal rights have blasted the decision. Mr. Mark Brooks, whose group supports victims of domestic violence, slammed it as “unacceptable”.
