IT was a remarkable decision by a judge to lift reporting restrictions so the media could name three teenage girls accused of a humiliating and violent attack on two other youngsters.
Anyone who thinks the courts are there to protect offenders should read this and think that this is one judge who is seeing this case from a public perception.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall described the three thugs as like “a pack of feral animals’’ and decided to name and shame them.
Others should beware. Get into trouble and you’re likely to get into the newspaper for all the wrong reasons.
