Our thanks to Bryn for this. As always with female paedophiles, an attempt to excuse her behavior:
Michael Clare, who did not represent Delray at trial but appeared for her defence, said the defendant was of very low risk of re-offending.
He said she was concerned at her trial about the impression she gave to the court as she had been advised not to show her emotions.
“She feels she has been let down in the way she presented herself.”
He said she was a vulnerable individual with a number of health problems and suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome.
“Custody for her will be all the more punishment for her. She is someone who will find it extremely difficult.”
That’s not an argument you’ll ever have heard in mitigation for a male paedophile.
