Dud Judge caves to dirty pedo’s river of tears

Oh please….. all dirty paedo’s have to do now is say they will hurt themselves and voila…Courts and dud judges will award name suppression!

If only they would self harm…it would save taxpayers a lot of money.

A High Court judge has granted a sex offender permanent name suppression because she says naming him would increase the risk of him taking his own life.

The Auckland District Court had earlier heard that the doctor, who is in his 60s, was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after discovering the body of his son who had committed suicide.

The court was told he suffered a mental breakdown after the discovery, during which time he sexually abused two young boys. 

The doctor last month pleaded guilty to two representative charges of indecent assault and was sentenced in the Auckland District Court to 12 months home detention.

Judge Eddie Paul declined to grant him permanent name suppression, citing the principle of open justice.

However, Justice Winkelmann overturned that decision on Friday because of a psychiatrist’s evidence of the suicide risk.

The Crown had argued that naming criminals was part of the punishment and would protect the public from possible re-offending.

It is believed to be the first time permanent suppression has been granted under such circumstances and University of Auckland associate professor Bill Hodge says the decision could set a dangerous precedent.

He says the use of suicide risk as a reason for name suppression could become a standard tactic by defence lawyers.

Oh look Winkelmann J….again…justice served? Only for fat Krauts it seems.

Judge Eddie Paul had it right…this dodgy ratbag should have been named…if he offed himself I would struggle to find a reason why that was bad. The excuse making in this case is astonishing…abusing boys because of a breakdown…might kill himself if named…

Pricks like this should have a good sturdy length of strong sisal rope and an eyebolt installed in their cells.
