Father of 22 children by 11 women is spared jail to look after baby

Women have long used children as a ‘Get out of jail free’ card, but it’s unusual for a man to be allowed to do so. Raymond Hull (58) was convicted for drug dealing, after being convicted for 31 offences (not drug-related) in 40 years. He’s lived off benefits for the past 10 years:

Hull admitted  using cannabis to help with  his own medical problems at Carlisle Crown  Court, but claimed he only sold to  friends to cover costs. However,  Judge Paul Batty QC dismissed Hull’s claims as  a ‘cock and bull story’.  Hull then abandoned his story, choosing not to give  evidence in support  of it.

In mitigation, Anthony Wilson said Hull had  ‘a number of  medicinal conditions’ including breathing problems, back pains and  frequent chest infections which would make any time in prison  difficult.

Well, we mustn’t imprison people who’d find prison ‘difficult’, must we? The judge’s surname is, appropriately:

Batty

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
