Our thanks to Steve for this. The start of the piece:
A MUM-of-two [J4MB: Who is this article addressed to? Children? Why not “mother-of-two”?] lied about her abusive ex threatening her with a machete in a bid to get “revenge”, a court heard.
Elle Lewis, 24, who later admitted to police that she’d made up parts of her statement, was spared an immediate jail sentence on Friday after a Swindon judge heard she was a full-time carer for her two children, was remorseful and posed a low risk of harm to the public.
Imposing a 14-month prison sentence suspended for two years, Judge Peter Crabtree said: “Whatever the abuse you had suffered, you simply cannot take the law into your own hands in that way.” [J4MB emphasis: By imposing a suspended sentence, the judge demonstrated that as a woman, Lewis COULD take the law into her own hands, like countless women before her.]
