'Drunk judge acquits a paedophile'

PressTV - 'Drunk judge acquits a paedophile'

The mother of the alleged rape victim has lodged a complaint with the judicial watchdog complaining that Field only examined one of the charges the defendant faced and did not allow the jury announce their verdict on the two other charges.

Field reportedly got drunk at a leaving party in an extended lunch break during the trial and returned to the court room ordering the jury to acquit the 55-year old man accused of raping an 8-year-old as they could not reach consensus over the verdict after five days of hearing.
