Mr Gerard offered to read a victim impact statement from the officer to the court but Judge Samantha Leigh (Ed: *sigh*) said she had seen it and it did not need to be read out.
Bull admitted affray and making threats with an offensive weapon.I guess she doesn't think police can be victims. They must be about the only group, since she clearly believes this of criminals...
Judge Leigh handed Bull a nine-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, so that he can take part in a drug treatment programme, noting that he was “high” during the incident.
The judge told Bull the situation with his child must be “heartbreaking” but he should handle it through the courts.
He was ordered to complete 80 hours of unpaid work but a Crown request for costs was refused.Bit by bit, judges like this are chipping away at the justice system,
