The wife, Christine Hemming 53, of a Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming has been given a nine-month suspended sentence for stealing a kitten from the home of her husband’s lover.
Definition of a suspended sentence:
When a court imposes a custodial sentence of between 14 days and one year (or six months in the magistrates’ court), the court may choose to suspend the sentence for up to two years. This means that the offender does not go to prison but must comply with one or more requirements set by the court.
There are 12 requirements the court may impose, listed in section 190(1) of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, including:
- doing unpaid work;
- being subject to a curfew;
- undertaking a treatment programme for alcohol or drugs;
- being subject to a supervision requirement.
Hemming, whose sentence is suspended for 12 months, has said she still cannot remember how it came to be in her possession. She said: “I did not deliberately take the cat”
But yet there is CCTV evidence that she left the house she trespassed with a kitten.
The kitten, has not been found since it was filmed being removed on 29 September 2010.
So how come she has a suspended sentence ? An animal/a pet had disappeared due to her stupidity, selfishness, thoughtlessness is now dead or what ? If this was a human child, surely there would be a big case and hunt and finally a sentence. How can she be let off so easily ?
“…said she still cannot remember how it came to be in her possession” If she is mentally ill, surely stick her in some mental institution so others are safe from her.
Mr Hemming, you heard of getting a divorce before unzipped your pants ? You’re a twat!
