A prison officer who had an affair with an inmate was spared an immediate jail sentence today after a judge ruled her 'lack of training' was partly to blame.
Rocha, of Norwich, was vulnerable at the time as she had only come out of an eight year abusive relationship in 2017.
She said she knew the relationship with a prisoner was wrong but claimed she had only been given one training session on the issue.
I was only given one training session on not sticking my fingers into a running office shredder, and I'm typing this with both hands!
The judge added: 'It's the resources that are just not there. It's not your fault that you didn't have sufficient training.
'Once the resources are there, then this sort of offending will diminish. That is where the heart of the problem arises.'
No, judge, I think the heart of the problem lies in recruiting people manifestly unsuited to the job on identity politics grounds, and then allowing them to avoid any trace whatsoever of personal responsibility, aided and abetted by a judicial system that also manifestly unsuited to the task.
And there's nothing whatsoever that 'more resources' will do to fix this...
