Sophie Russell, 16, was attacked by the teenage yobs who left her seriously injured with a broken nose and shattered face at her school in February./facepalm
But the gang of four girls and five boys were let off after police only handed one of the mob with a caution.
Mrs Russell, 45, said: 'I am absolutely devastated. If they are doing that at the age of 15 what are they going to be doing at the age of 25?This didn’t even get as far as ‘justice’ as we know it, the police deciding not to bother risking it, so might as well cut out the middleman…
'There is no justice...'
A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said the case was passed to the Youth Offending Team who decided not to press charges but to give a caution for common assault.Yes, yes, we know all that. We just can’t figure out the mindset of people who would think a caution was appropriate for this sort of assault….
She said: 'Age is a factor in the decision but everything would have been taken into account. Her (Sophie) injuries would form part of the evidence.
'The case would have been handed over the the Youth Offending Team and various other agencies.
'Evidence would have been looked at to come to the decision that a caution was the necessary action to take in this case.'
