Lauren Barrington-Brown, 19, of Livingstone Road, Thornton Heath, who became a mum just before the New Year, wept as she was sentenced to 33 months detention at Croydon Crown Court on Friday January 6 alongside 16 and 15 year old girls who cannot be named.Wow! Normally, the combined ‘pussy pass’ plus ‘expectant mum pass’ would have almost certainly seen her freed with a suspended sentence.
The three were charged with false imprisonment, actual bodily harm and administering poison, namely fire, with intent to injure after carrying out a brutal attack on the 13-year-old girl in Grangewood Park, Thornton Heath on June 9, 2010.
The crime must have been pretty appalling:
Her hair was cut and burned, blistering her head, her arm was cut with a tile, she was trapped in a bush barefoot and told to crawl out, spat upon and hit with a brick before being freed.And this was all over what?
They then threatened her family would be attacked if she reported them.
The attack was launched because they believed the victim was spreading rumours about the 16-year-old described by Judge Pratt as “the prime mover.”Ah. Of course. Just another day among the feral underclass…
In mitigation the lawyers defending both Barrington-Brown and the 15-year-old argued they were afraid of this girl, who pleaded not guilty to the charges but was convicted at a trial in November 2011.Yes, well, that’s not really much of an excuse, is it?
