Daily Mail caption: Lavinia Woodward, 24, (pictured arriving at court in September) was handed a suspended 10 month jail term – she has now applied for permission to take her case to the Court of Appeal
Our thanks to Mike P for this. The start of the piece:
The Oxford University medical student who escaped jail after stabbing her Tinder date with a bread knife has been denied permission to appeal her sentence.
Lavinia Woodward, 24, was let off with a 10 month suspended jail sentence in December last year after Judge Ian Pringle QC said she was ‘too bright’ for jail.
Despite avoiding prison after pleading guilty to unlawful wounding, Woodward was unhappy and tried to appeal for permission to take her case to the Court of Appeal.
But today her application was rejected and Woodward was denied permission by a judge to escalate the case.
Woodward can still apply to have her case heard by a full court of two or three judges however, the BBC reports.
