These female barristers, eh?

A prominent barrister who admitted having sex outside a busy London train station cannot be named after she later claimed she had been the victim of a sexual assault.
The middle-aged woman, said to be one of the leading experts in her field, was arrested outside Waterloo station alongside Graeme Stening, a City lawyer, after members of the public complained about their behaviour during the evening rush hour.
Mr Stening and the complainant, who had been drinking, were arrested at around 7.15pm. They were taken to a police station and held in custody overnight before being questioned the following morning.
She accepted a caution for outraging public decency but six weeks later, said she had actually been the victim of a sexual assault and applied to have the conviction quashed.

No wonder that bloke thought it might be a good idea to compliment that Linked In photo if that’s the way the profession works.

  1. “After the hearing his solicitor, Mr Bhachu, told The Telegraph: “Mr Stening denies any wrongdoing. This is sadly a case where my client, a man of impeccable character….”

    Clearly, I’m now far too old fashioned. A ‘man of impeccable character’ should – in my book – at least take his lady to a three star hotel to perform the horizontal waltz.

    Not a public street.

  2. Cunnng. Thank goodness we don’t have a legal system which can be gamed by powerful and motivated people.

    Anyway, if and when the police decide there was no assault, can she be named, or will it mean she’s anonymous forever?

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    The middle-aged woman, said to be one of the leading experts in her field, was arrested outside Waterloo station alongside Graeme Stening, a City lawyer, after members of the public complained about their behaviour during the evening rush hour.

    So this time there were witnesses? I am beginning to think it is something about Waterloo station – all that girders must do something to the female psyche.

    Either that or she had been drinking a lot. Middle aged should be old enough to know not to give someone a drunken blow job in front of crowds who may know you and security cameras who will certainly record you.

  4. Get caught burgling a house, claim you were sexually assaulted by the homeowner, avoid reporting of your crime in the press.

    This could lead to mendacious claims of sexual assault actually being dealt with seriously. But probably not.

  5. Chateau Heartiste is a useful source when it comes to understanding the sexuality and morals of female lawyers. CH himself says they are to be avoided like the damned plague.

  6. A man and a woman have both been drinking. They have sex. They’re seen by other people. They both feel ashamed after the event. One of them is now a rapist. Can you guess which one?

  7. I wonder what wheezes the CPS will get up to with this one? Will they settle merely for misrepresenting the available evidence, or will they explore new boundaries in political prosecutions by simply making shit up?

  8. John Square – surely if he’d drunk enough for Cherie, he wouldn’t be able to do what he’s been accused of?

  9. Noel Coward to the tune of Dvorak’s Humoresque, Never consummate the marriage, when you first get in the carriage, while the train is standing still at Waterloo. Kindly leave the matrimonial function, ’till you get to Clapham Junction, when there’s really nothing else to do.

  10. A drunken knee trembler and she realises six weeks after it was assault?

    He’s all over the press and she doesn’t get named.

    Yeah! I know who has been shafted alright!

  11. So Much For Subtlety

    Gamecock – “So she could be named for 6 weeks, but now she can’t?”

    So her colleagues and family found out. Regret became rape.

  12. I doubt she gets much out of this. even a conveyancing solicitor in Anglesea will know her name, it’s just us MOTP who don’t.

  13. Gamecock. I imagine if there were any reports of it before, she’s now used the right to be forgotten to have Google clean up after her.

  14. According to quite possibly scurrilous internet gossip, “Mrs [redacted] is the prominent Barrister engaged in outraging public morals by bonking Mr Stening in full view of commuters. She says that she was assaulted later that night thus plays the anonymity card.”

  15. In this Age of the Internet, how can this ban on publishing names hold up? If her name was posted on (say) a USA website, what could anyone do about it?

  16. SJW

    Amazing how these scurrilous allegations are rarely denied in the MSM.

    On a related issue involving many lying lawyers, is Boris happy after his first week he and his wife have been out?
