Something wrong here, surely?

There was some arguing and shoving, the court heard, before the Graham and his colleague were escorted off the land.
However, days later Graham called the police to say that he had been assaulted before providing footage later that month which he claimed was an original recording.
It appeared to show Henry Milner repeatedly kicking him but when he was interviewed by police he denied any assault.
Mr Milner told the court that he had merely taken a step near the defendant while requesting he leave his land.
Graham had fallen to the ground in the “slippery” wet field, he said.
However, it was not until the summer of 2018 that the case against Mr Milner was discontinued after Leicestershire police analysed the films and “determined they had been doctored to present the incident in a different light”.
Graham was charged with perverting the course of justice with the video but denied the allegations and was only convicted following a trial at Leicester Crown Court last week.
He was found not guilty of a separate count of perverting the course > of justice in relation to the report of the assault which he had made.
He was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment suspended for two years and ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work within the next two years after the judge noted that it had taken almost five years for the case to come to a conclusion.
He was also ordered to pay £1,000 costs and given a seven-year restraining order banning any contact with the people he had made the allegation against or from going to the area in which the incident was reported to have happened.
Detective Constable Louise Osborne investigated the incident.
She said: “Perverting the course of justice is a serious criminal offence. I hope this will serve as a deterrent to anyone intent on committing a similar offence.”

If perverting the course of justice is a serious criminal offence – which it is, as with perjury, it kills the system of law in the first place – then why hasn’t he been significantly jugged for it?

  1. Sit in the mags for half a day. Every offence, from running a red light by two seconds to shoplifting a can of extra strength, from foul-mouthed public tirades to emptying a glass of water over someone’s head, will be described by the presiding magistrate as a ‘(very) serious offence’.

  2. Falsely accusing someone of a crime ought to get at least the punishment the false crime would have got had it been believed. Ideally some multiple thereof to discourage.

    But given our current criminal justice, perhaps it did.

  3. Don’t know if the report mentions it, but the perverter was a hunt sab. So getting close to being one of the now-protected classes

  4. BiW

    Exactly; well intentioned trespassing lefty versus evil hard working farmer, no contest. The sab should appeal, it’s clearly a miscarriage of justice.

  5. BiW – I guessed that from reading the extract. Yet again the criminal justice system. from Plod all the way to the home sec, makes it clear whose side they’re on.
    BLM protestors blocking traffic in central London yesterday. Plod looks on approvingly.

  6. I thought the going rate for assaulting someone was normally less than a 12 month suspended sentence? So in this case he probably has got more than what he accused the person of.

  7. Detective Constable Louise Osborne investigated the incident.

    She said: “Perverting the course of justice is a serious criminal offence. I hope this will serve as a deterrent to anyone intent on committing a similar offence.”

    You don’t often get jokes with punch lines that good.


  8. The maximum sentence that can be imposed for perverting the course of justice is life imprisonment and/or a fine. However, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) sentencing guidelines recommend a prison sentence for this crime of between four and 36 months.

  9. “… then why hasn’t he been significantly jugged for it?”

    As a ‘hunt saboteur’, the establishment approves of him and his ilk.

    Note the disparate treatment meted out by the filth to this weekends anti-mask/ lockdown protest and BLM/ Antifa riots.

    We’re getting close to living in what Sam Francis called ‘Anarcho-Tyranny’.
