Stuart Hall And Bill Roache Judge And ‘Gay Sauna’ Revelation

My apologies for the tabloidesque title.

Under normal circumstances I’d say that a person’s sexuality should not call into doubt that persons ability to do their job but it is not just Judge Andrew Russell’s sexuality that calls into question his judgement but the circumstances which are semi-public (gay sauna).

Judge Andrew Russell’s sentencing of Stuart Hall has been criticised for being too lenient and the 15 month sentence (just over one month for every charge of sexual assault that he pleaded guilty to) has been challenged and the Attorney General will review the sentence.

Judge Andrew Russell will also preside over the trial of Bill Roache and these revelations will call into question Judge Russell’s impartiality in cases like these.

When judge Andrew Russell was caught visiting a gay brothel, it looked like the end of a glittering career.

The part-time Recorder of Bolton and eminent QC quit after his trip to the sauna was exposed in a newspaper sting.

But he bounced back. Mr Russell was later reinstated and went on to become a senior judge.

And last week, the 62-year-old sparked controversy after sentencing former It’s a Knockout host Hall to just 15 months in prison for three decades of sex attacks on young girls.

Judge Russell, recently appointed to oversee Corrie star Bill Roache’s child sex trial, is alleged to have gone into a “dark room” inside the building with a leading doctor and a hospital porter. He was a part-time judge and a prominent Manchester barrister at the time he visited the Greenhouse club in the Walsall, West Mids.

Within days, Judge Russell admitted going into the brothel – today advertised as “the UK’s No1 gay sauna”. But he insisted the ­description of what went on inside was “factually inaccurate in some respects and exaggerated”.

    a lot of the public were accuseing cps and the police of a cdmit telberey witch hunt so the cps despratly needed someone who would put there hands up and admit they did it.

    hall knew once the evidence was heard by a jury he would be convicted..

    so a deal was done.

  5. ‘Gay sauna’ remind you of anything? Elm Guest House perhaps….

    Why can’t these people in positions of power just behave themselves? I’m not knocking his sexuality. Nobody has the right to question anyone’s sexuality, if it’s between consenting adults. But why is it, that time and again, we read stories of our lawmakers and politicians being caught in compromising situations in a sleazy and corrupt world the average man or woman of the street barely even knows exists! It’s just a joke. The law abiding amongst us seem to be nothing more than mugs these days, with the elite, ruling members of society doing what they jolly well like!

  7. I’d give a years wages to punch this judge on he’s ******* smug face.

    i don’t think that’s the reason hall got a slight sentence i think a deal had already been struck with cps of course the judge has the power to reject such a deal but normally don’t.
