“The original judge, Justice Pepperall, accepted that the defendant was ‘wracked by guilt,’ showed ‘genuine remorse,’ and had suffered depression. He observed that she was a good mother to three children.”
“Foster had voluntarily revealed her actions to police, ‘Had she not done that, it is highly unlikely that she would have ever been prosecuted.'”
However, what shocks me most of all is that “The prison had not allowed Foster any communication with her children, one of whom is autistic, during her 35-day incarceration.”
I hope Justice Peperall’s head is hanging in shame – for an idiotic judgment.
