Three years ago Robert Lazarus was made a judge. If his judgment in the Clare Cassidy case is anything to go by he should be removed from the bench pronto.
The case is an absolute shocker and the sentence will make any victim of a dangerous driver worry about receiving justice in the courts.
In her BMW 118D Cassidy, 31, was doing 63mph in a 30mph area. Plus she had traces of cocaine in her blood. Not to mention the fact that she was using her mobile phone while driving.
The inevitable happened. She crashed into nursery nurse Yasmin Jenkins, 29, while out running with her boyfriend in Stockport to raise money for the NHS in the April of last year.
She was thrown into the air and her injuries were horrendous. For three weeks she was in a coma as doctors dealt with her fractured skull, bleed to the brain, and broken left ankle.
Ever since she has struggled to walk and had to learn to write again.

In a statement to the police, Yasmin said; “ Three parts of my brain have been damaged. I struggle to remember things.” She is not allowed to drive and had to move in with her father and partner with her bed in the kitchen as she is unable to get upstairs.
Since the accident she been unable to go back to work and has been told it may take five years to recover. Absolutely shocking story.
Cassidy could have got years for this and to my mind would have deserved it.
Her defence counsel said Cassidy had mental problems and had been treated at the Priory since 2016. He claimed she was now drug free. So what?

Anyway the idiot judge listened to this twaddle from Cassidy who claimed to be “very sorry” -aren’t all defendants very sorry? - and gave her a two year suspended sentence , banned her from driving for three years and made her do 120 hours of unpaid work. Big deal.
This was his justification for such a ridiculous sentence: “ You have a history of long-term mental health problems and I accept that you are genuinely remorseful. I also note that your mental health problems may deteriorate if sent to prison.”
What an absurd judgment. Who cares if her problems get worse. She has imposed her problems on Yasmin and should pay for it.
I would be grateful if the Lord Chancellor’s office should look at kicking Robert Lazarus off the bench and grateful of if the CPS appealed this sentence.
