AN aspiring heart surgeon who stabbed her boyfriend with a bread knife may escape jail time because of her “extraordinary talent”, a court has been told. The independent reported Oxford University student Lavinia Woodward, 24, punched and stabbed her boyfriend during a drug and alcohol-fuelled rage at Christ Church college, Oxford. The couple met on the Tinder dating app. Woodward admitted to a charge of unlawful wounding, which normally carries a custodial sentence. However, Judge Ian Pringle QC suggested she may be spared jail because of her academic record and the fact it could damage her future prospects. “It seems to me that if this was a one-off, a complete one-off, to prevent this extraordinary, able young lady from not following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to, would be a sentence which would be too severe,” he said, according to The independent. “What you did will never, I know, leave you but it was pretty awful, and normally it would attract a custodial sentence, whether it is immediate or suspended.” The court was told Christ Church would allow her to return to her studies in October because she is “that bright” and had already been published in medical journals. - http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/re...r/news-story/98baba16d4a1b428d6778db11b815ccc Where the fuck is the justice in this. First we get a judge letting of that rapist swimmer, then we get that punk affluenza kid Ethan Couch getting spared. This is ludicrous, like really bad imo. There seems to be a common thread globally, you reckon in this day and age it wouldnt be like that anymore.
