Our thanks to Steve and Nigel for this. Nigel writes:
In another tale of a suspended sentence a mother who doesn’t want to be a mother gets a free pass because she’s got a “personality disorder”. Not so disordered that she couldn’t invent a story to blame her boyfriend for the neglect and attempt to kill her three-year-old son.
The Corston Report continues to do its work as the courts regard women as too precious and delicate to serve time for their crimes. Can one imagine the father of a three-year-old who he’d neglected and plotted a fatal “accident” to get rid of, being so sympathetically treated? The assumption would be that he’s bad and totally responsible for his actions. And the “Bench Book” enshrines this double standard in the sentencing.
