Think of how terrible it would be for a pretty girl to be forced to go to prison.
A “glamourous” 19-year old teen, Tannah Knight-Olsen, from Sydney who punched a woman in the back of her head, destroyed private property on two occasions and was caught with drugs in her possession has been spared jail time because according to the judge, “she would be a victim” in jail.
His exact words were:
‘Whilst I understand that you’re looking for something in life that eases your pain, (the drug use) makes you a worse person. She needs assistance and she needs that in the community – she’d just be a victim in jail.’
Remember, this is a girl who earlier this year was caught in the possession of marijuana and ice (also a drug). She has also faced violence charges, including incidents where she smashed a landline phone and a pot plant during disputes with family members – which she pleaded guilty to. And to top it all off, she assaulted a woman in a bar.
She was initially sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, which the judge decided to throw out the window because who cares about rule of law anyway? “She’d be a victim in jail” has got to be the lamest defense I’ve ever heard… I mean, who wouldn’t be a victim in jail? I wonder if a man who had committed the same crimes as her would get off as easily.
Girl spared jail for being too pretty
