Judge Barnes asked Nicholas Hamblin, defending, if Gunn has relapsed back into alcoholism after failing to turn up to the probation meeting.
She said: “You are asking me to give him yet another chance. He got drunk, and didn’t turn up. Why would it be suitable to adjourn at all?
“He was seen in public with a samurai sword, this is a serious matter.”So you'll throw the book at him, yes?
Judge Shani Barnes was furious with him, but agreed to delay his sentence until he has met the service./facepalm
