A source close to Grey's defence team said she plans to appeal, having expected only a suspended sentence.Yes, it's the conclusion to this case.
The court heard that until pre-sentencing Grey had expressed 'no remorse' for her actions...
So what? At least that's more honest!
'Her lawyer had desperately tried to get her out on bail during an appeal process but it was a failed application.'
They've really got it in for this woman, haven't they? I wonder why...
It comes as the local council was unable to confirm today whether or not bicycles are allowed on the pavement where the incident took place - despite the judge declaring it a 'shared footpath' at court.
Wait, what? So neither the police nor the local council can decide, but 'his honour' can opine from the bench? Surely someone should be looking at this fool's competence to be a judge?
At the sentencing hearing, Judge Sean Enright acknowledged Grey's health issues, but told her they 'do not reduce your understanding of right or wrong'.
Strange, since my blog is littered with cases where the judge has fallen over himself to be lenient and award the benefit of the doubt. And this particular one has no hesitation showing it to drug dealers and burglars.
Following Grey's conviction, Detective Sergeant Mark Dollard, who interviewed her, said: 'I am pleased with the verdict and hope it is a stark reminder to all road users to take care and be considerate to each other. '
Of course you're pleased. Low hanging fruit is always easiest, isn't it? And what consideration did the cyclist show to pedestrians?
