The judge described her attacks of the two police officers as ‘thuggery’ and said he had considered jailing her but was mindful she had three children aged 3, 9 and ten.
Therefore, he decided to hand Horne an 18-month sentence, suspended for two years, and imposed 90-day rehabilitation order of alcohol abatement and monitoring.
Did the judge seriously consider the woman a fit mother? Surely not, in which case, why did he give her yet another suspended sentence, her fourth?
