I bet he won’t argue with Bubba

A filthy sex offender spent time in court arguing with a judge about which way he should face to avoid being photographed.

He sure won’t be arguing with Bubba about which way to face when he finally gets sent to prison.

A judge this morning told a convicted Hamilton child molester attempting to avoid having his photo taken to “stop acting like a spoilt schoolboy”.

Christopher Ian Crause made a second appearance in Hamilton District Court after being remanded in custody overnight.

Crause, 48, had been on the run from police for more than a year after being found guilty at trial of multiple sex offences against young girls.

During yesterday’s appearance he held a hand up throughout proceedings in order to prevent his picture being taken.

Judge David Ruth again granted the Waikato Times permission to take photos but Crause held a piece of paper up to cover his face. 

Judge Ruth told Crause to put his hands down, which he ignored, before Judge Ruth again told Crause to put his hands down.

Crause then turned around – with his back to the judge – when Judge Ruth told him to face the front.

“Behave yourself, Mr Crause, you’re in enough trouble as it is without acting like a spoilt schoolboy. Do you understand?” Judge Ruth said.

“No,” Crause replied.

“Well your lawyer will explain it for you,” the judge said.

Scum like this should be fitted with lead boots and given a long walk off a short pier.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
