Our thanks to Mike P for this. An extract:
Trainor’s barrister, Jade Edwards, said a psychiatric report had been ordered and asked for the sentencing to be adjourned for four weeks.
The judge said: ‘You have pleaded guilty to what I am sure you understand is a very serious offence.
‘It is a breach of trust and it is a very serious matter.
‘I am going to order a pre-sentence report so the judge who sentences you has a full understanding of your background and any difficulties you may face. [J4MB: Translation – “We’re going to do everything possible to ensure you won’t get punished.”]
‘You must understand that a custodial sentence is almost inevitable in a case such as this.
‘There is no point in giving to you false hope.’ [J4MB: Hilarious. The judge is clearly a frustrated comedian. Jordan Trainor will receive a suspended sentence and be told she came “very close” to a custodial sentence.]
We need more female prison officers.
