Our thanks to Ken for this. This gem from the judge, Tina Landale:
‘I also take into account the fact that at the time of this offence, you were particularly and extremely vulnerable because you had a four-month-old baby, and your hormones and hormonal upheaval must be an additional factor.
‘That meant the pressure upon you would be even more exceptional than it would have been in a coercive relationship. I can take account of all these features and consider that there were exceptional circumstances in this case. A custodial sentence is inevitable, but the mitigation allows me to suspend this sentence.’
