...just 40 minutes after Judge Beverley Lunt handed out her sentence, Daniel posted on Facebook: “Beverly Lunt go suck my C***. Cannot believe my luck 2 year suspended sentence beats the 3 year jail yes pal!”Lest you think he's the only cretin in the family...
Less than an hour later his dimwit brother Samuel commented: “What a day it’s been Burnley crown court !! up ur ass aha nice 2year suspended f*** the 3year in forest bank.”Whoops!
But to their horror the posts were brought to the attention of the judge and they were brought back to Burnley Crown Court so she could review their sentence.
She said she had let them both off with a two years prison term suspended for 18 months because of their supposed “remorse and contrition”.What? You mean that wasn't sincere? Well, you could knock me down with a feather!
Judge Lunt said they had both claimed to have “changed” and got themselves jobs - but they had now shown their true colours.
She fumed about their social media posts: “It is plain they were never intended for me to see it. One is 40 minutes at most from passing sentence and one is one hour 25 minutes after I passed sentence.
“The content is differed but both have offensive sexual elements to them.
“I am not suggesting that they now need to go to prison for four years. It is the issue of the suspension.
“Would I have done so had I appreciated their true views and what they really thought of the court proceedings?”So....you really believed their contrition was real? Good grief!
Judge Lunt allowed both defence barristers seven days to get the full transcript of the last court case before she makes a decision.Shouldn't they already have these to hand?
