A man sexually abuses a 5 year old girl and when she reports it to the police 35 years later 3 of the man’s family beat the victim up.
What do you think Judge Simon Carr did ?
He lets all 4 walk free from court.
Christopher Prowse received a suspended sentence for indecent assault.
Sentencing, Judge Simon Carr said the incident had been “disgraceful”.
“You deliberately assaulted a five-year-old child,” he said. “That would have been terrifying for her as it would have been confusing and embarrassing.”
He said the victim had shown him “enormous compassion” by not going to the police in the mid-2000s but that when the matter became known locally, Prowse had acted in a cowardly way by denying it – an action which led some people to consider the woman a liar.
Michael Prowse, Amanda Durrant and Jason Thomas also received suspended sentences.
The woman left the venue but came into contact with the three again sometime later.
Ms Martin said Thomas, 34, of St Johns Terrace, Pendeen, kicked the woman in the face.
Then all three of them began punching her in the face.
They each admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm on the woman but denied charges of witness intimidation…
…Sentencing, Judge Simon Carr said the three were lucky that the woman’s injuries were restricted to multiple bruising.He said: “[She was] continually approached in the street that she was a liar; that she was making things up.
“On this particular occasion, yet again she was confronted by a group containing the three of you … you beat her up for telling the truth.”
