A mum whose daughter was the victim of a sex assault by two men has welcomed a Court of Appeal decision to send them to prison – but has called for the Devon judge who let them walk free to be reprimanded.
Judge Graham Cottle is a criminal himself. He was once the recorder of Exeter, he was removed from the Exeter circuit for wrong doings and found his way to the Plymouth circuit for a while. He is now back in Exeter but not as the recorder, but as a crooked judge. I have every symphathy with the mum who is against his actions.
