Our thanks to Ray for this. An extract:
Del Viscio told Sheriff McCormack she had been drinking vodka during the evening and taken drugs in the toilet of the nightclub. Her solicitor asked her how was her memory of the latter part of the evening and she replied: “There are things I can’t remember”. In court today, Mr Templeton said the Social Work Report put his client as at low risk of re-offending, that she led an otherwise productive life with a good record of employment and what had happened had been caused by alcohol and drugs.
Yet again alcohol and/or drugs are considered mitigating circumstances for a women, while for a man they’d be considered aggravating circumstances.
