Lavinia Woodward, 24, drug addict, Oxford student who stabbed boyfriend could be spared jail ‘because of her extraordinary talent’

Our thanks to Nick for this. Extracts:

A top University of Oxford student who stabbed her boyfriend could be spared jail because she’s so clever and it would damage her career.

Aspiring heart surgeon Lavinia Woodward, 24, met the man on Tinder but then punched and swiped at him with a bread knife during a drink-and-drug fuelled row.

She then stabbed the Cambridge-educated boyfriend in the leg before hurling a laptop, glass and a jam jar at him at iconic Christ Church college, Oxford…

Judge [Ian] Pringle said jailing her could be unfair – because it could affect her career…

Defending, James Sturman QC said his drug addict client’s dreams of becoming a surgeon were “almost impossible” as her conviction would have to disclosed.

But he claimed Christ Church will allow her to return to the college in October.

Woodward had a “very troubled life” and had been abused by another ex, Mr Sturman said.

Woodward will be sentenced on September 25 and was slapped with a restraining order, told to stay drug-free and not to re-offend.

The judge told her to ‘stay drug-free and not to re-offend’. We’ve seen how well that works in other cases involving women, some of whom have been convicted dozens of times for violent assaults – sometimes on policemen – without serving custodial sentences.

As for the claim that she’d been abused by another ex, two questions spring to mind. Firstly, was the claim substantiated – i.e. was her ex-partner convicted for the crime? – or was it just one of countless false claims made by female criminals to escape justice in the courts of relentlessly gynocentric judges? Secondly, is abuse by a former partner a mitigating circumstance for stabbing a new partner? Only for women abused by men, we can safely assume.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    “Woodford has had a very troubled life…”

      So did Adolf Hitler

    The mind boggles.
    This offence shows she is not a fit and proper person to embark upon a professional career of any description, much less a medical one, or to hold any position of trust. Her conviction renders her unfit to hold a taxi licence, a much humbler position which nevertheless requires a clean record as it involves contact with vulnerable people.
    She should be scrubbing floors or stacking shelves, which is all someone this aggressive can safely be allowed to do.

      ‘ … She should be scrubbing floors or stacking shelves … ‘

      She should be serving an indeterminate term in a psychiatric prison.

    Lavinia Woodward – classic psycho.

    Oxford University – building up a solid reputation as feminazi University that you wouldn’t want to send your children to. If a male student were convicted of punching his girlfriend in the face and stabbing her in the leg then would they let him back in? Of course not.

    Oxford men – why don’t you have the courage to fight back against this treatment? Have you all become a bunch of pansies?

      They have all been educated in the ‘education. education, education’ Blair era so are thoroughly indoctrinated with, and emasculated by, feminist ideology and would rather die than stand up to a woman.

    What if the situation were reversed and he raped her? Would he have been spared ‘jail’ because doing so might adversely affect his career?

    That aside, is the phrase ‘extraordinary talent’ yet another gynophile* euphemism for vagina?

    *I had to add gynophile to my spelling checker as it wasn’t recognised.

    Note how the whole thing is about her; her suffering; her potential; how gifted she is.
    There’s no mention of how it’s affected the boyfriend’s future/psychology. If she were a male trainee doctor no-one would be the slightest bit interested in his potential to save lives – they’d be more concerned about the fact he’d just attempted to take one.

  • Slowcoach

    Heaven forbid that a woman’s career should be unfairly affected – that is all that matters after all.
    As for it being “unfairly affected”, should that not be “fairly affected”?

    Judge Pringle has clearly been seriously infected with gyno-stupidism, and should stick to making crisps, it’s all he’s fit for.

    Then there’s the issue of Woodward’s alcoholic drug addicted rages.
    Is there not the slighest concern that such people may not be the group of choice for the job of heart surgeon of all things – surely Fudge Pringle should follow his comment (after s suitably long pause to let the implications sink in) with the words ‘only joking’?

    I would not like a convicted stabbing artist as my heart surgeon. Baker, maybe.
