Paul Blanchard, for Whitaker, said she struggled with drink and drugs.
“I have no doubt that her intentions at the time were nothing more than friendly.
“This young lady is not a sex offender and going on the register would be catastrophic.”No need to work so hard, chum. Leniency's practically guaranteed, right?
Whitaker was jailed for 16 weeks and ordered to pay £1,330 in fines.
The court heard she had a previous record of failing to carry out community orders.
Chairwoman of the bench Ms Julie Houston said: “This offence is so serious a custodial sentence is necessary.”Ha ha ha ha ha!
Whitaker will also have to register as a sex offender for the next seven years.Good to see a judge not following the progressive script.
