A judge who described a drug-addicted serial thief as “courageous” is to be investigated by the judicial watchdog. Judge Peter Bowers reportedly made the remark while sentencing 26-year-old Richard Rochford for burglary. The Teesside Crown Court judge also said he thought prison did criminals “little good”.
Maybe he should spend time in jail to establish his proposition? The liberal tide that has engulfed the Judiciary in recent decades has created specimens like Bowers.
