Bilko is aware that the case below is not one which comes under the heading 'corruption' but it does highlight the farcical judicial decisions made in our courts of law today.

Bilko is not one who wishes to see any man languish in prison, but being realistic we all realise that some individuals do deserve a large dollop of porridge when the circumstances merit it. Bilko thinks the situation below warrants far more than a 12 week bang-up. The magistrates responsible should hang their heads in shame. Bilko


Family Launches Sentence Appeal

THE heartbroken family of tragic hit-and-run toddler Levi Bleasdale say they are planning to appeal against the 12-week jail sentence handed down to the driver of the car that killed her.

Mohammed Aqueel Hussain (26), of Thurston Street, was sentenced at Burnley Magistrates' Court on Friday after he admitted failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident. He was driving a stolen VW Golf with no licence or insurance.

He also admitted careless driving, an offence which does not carry a prison sentence.
Three-year-old Levi was struck as she crossed Ormerod Road with her mum, Miss Kirsty Ryan, and five-month-old sister Brogan on Friday, September 9th, last year. She died in the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, Pendlebury, where her life support machine was switched off.

It was calculated that Hussain had been travelling between 39 and 48 m.p.h. in the 30 m.p.h. zone.

Angry grandad Mr Michael Ryan, of Clifton Street, Burnley, said he will do all he can to ensure justice is done. "We are all devastated, I think the sentence is appalling. It's just unbelievable, even a thief gets longer than that," he stormed.

"There must be something I can do about this, and will be taking advice. I want to go about it in the correct way. It's time that justice was done. It's like it's happening all over again. We were hoping we could put this all to rest, but we cannot now."

Mr Stephen Parker (prosecuting) told magistrates that Hussain, who had only a provisional licence and had never taken a test, sped away from the accident scene and stayed in a hotel before contacting his solicitor and handing himself in to the police.
Witnesses said the car was being driven "at speed", "erratically" and was "swerving across the road".

In his police interview, Hussain said he had not stopped because he panicked. He added that he would have stopped if it had been an adult rather than a child involved.
Miss Rachel Adamson (defending) said Hussain was desperate to show his remorse and did his best to avoid hitting Levi.
She added: "This is probably one of the most tragic cases that can come before a court, the death of a child. Nothing I can say on this defendant's behalf can make up to the family of this child.

"He accepts that what he did was inexcusable. He clearly states that he will never be able to forgive himself and that he prays for the child and her family every day.
"He knows this will be with him for the rest of his life."
Hussain also pleaded guilty to a charge of handling stolen goods and was sentenced to four weeks in prison to run concurrently with his 12-week sentence for failing to stop and failing to report an accident.

He was given no separate penalty for the other charges and was banned from driving for five years.

But step-grandmother Mrs Roseanne Ryan said Hussain's apology means nothing. "I hope he sees her in his sleep," she said. "She grew up so fast and was just taken from us in seconds.
"They might as well as put me in the coffin with her, I'm heartbroken."

We all know that every single court case held in a court of law is different from another due to the crime or the circumstances within a case.

 

However any Judge has his own mind made up even before a JURY has time to form their own and in other cases the JUDICIAL service knows who will be going to prison no matter what evidence the defence have.

 

Although in this post by Bilko that there is a vast gap between THE RULE of LAW and JUSTICE handed out.

Good point made by the Moderator regarding Judicial service knowing in some cases who will be found guilty beforehand regardless of any evidence the defence may produce. Bilko

The Moderator has just read DEATH CRASH COP SET FOR JAIL in today's Daily Record (page 4) and strengthens your argument over sentencing and crimes although they are two different set of circumstances there are still two needless deaths of young people who had their whole lives ahead of them.

You here of this all the time guys bottling it and speeding off.They should stop even if they have no liscense or insurance it could save the persons life and that is worth more than anything but if he doesnt stop and no one see the accident the victim lies to die in the steet.Twelve weeks is ludacris for a human lifehe should have got a longer sentence.

Bilko always alert to ways of helping Mrs Bilko balance the weekly house-keeping dough no longer buys the "daily's" he reads them for free on-line. His only excursion from this being on Sunday where it is somewhat of a tradition of the Bilkster's to be awakened with the Sunday Mail and News of the World by way of a side-dish to his massive fry-up.

This from the Daily Record(on-line version)article, mentioned above by Moderator: He was released on bail until next month pending reports - but judge Lord Menzies warned: "A custodial disposal is very much one of the disposals at the foreground of my mind."

Bilko will be keeping an eye out next month to see what sentence is meted out in this case - As a matter of curiosity. Bilko

This is a very sad case, i hope the family get justice one day. Note that in some countries they come down heavier on you for just being a passer-by and not helping at the scene, never mind being the perpetrator!! 12 weeks-makes you sick. steeleyma

Hi All... thanks for your posts regarding 'Family launches sentence appeal'.  Like Bilko, I will be very interested in the sentencing, but I would bet my arse that if was Joe Soap fae doon the road who had taken the lives of young people by reckless driving, they wouldn't be out on bail right now...
