Our thanks to Bryn for this. I was struck by this sentence:
She was sentenced to 18 months in prison by Judge Daniel Williams after he said she had shown “no remorse at all”.
Can we doubt that if Skinner had done what most women in this situation do, pretended to be remorseful – as her solicitor would surely have suggested – and “sobbed” in court, for good measure, she wouldn’t be serving a custodial sentence today? Surely not.
The final sentence in the piece:
She was sentenced to 18 months, of which she was told she would serve half before being released on licence.
Nine months for seeking to destroy a man’s life. Derisory, yet more punishment than most women in such situations receive.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
