Chris Huhne?

No mention of this on here, which surprised me.

 in reality it will be 4 months at the most in a nice soft open prison, even knowing that i feel to a degree that some justice has been served.

what do you lot think?

I'm probably in the minority

on this one, and don't get me wrong the bloke is a turd, but I'm sure high profile community service for 18 months would of been more appropriate.

This sentence was the same as another case recently when someone killed a motorcyclist driving dangerously.

Either sentencing has to be equal or why bother

Killing anyone through dangerous driving should have a minimum of at least 5 years, maybe more

But swapping points?? aren't prisons crowded enough and he will be out in proably 3 months, he will have 10% taken off for pleading guilty albeit at the last possible minute.

He'll spend his time writing a book on the experience and make even more money.

 

I'm not sure what punishment should be dished out but I don't think in this case a custodial sentence will do much damage

Agree with BB

I reckon 100's of couples / friends do this month in month out  -  it's the main failing of speed camera policy.


They only got caught because "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"

Senatnce

is due to high profile case and the need for justice to be 'seen' to be done; none of which should really be relevant in sentancing, but modern times, ho hum.

About right

An attempt to undermine a prosecution has to be punishable more severely than the original offence, or it would be in every crim's interest to try it on. Minimum sentence for perverting the course of justice is four months.

(And it won't be an open prison, since by the time they would be eligible for that they'll probably already have done four months, the routine half the sentence, and be sent home with a tag on, a criminal lawyer tells me)

(btw, the starting point for the lowest level of causing death by dangerous driving is 3 years, minimum 2 with a bunch of mitigating factors. See http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/s_to_u/sentencing_manual/death_by_dangerous_driving/ The main problem there is that the CPS usually go for the safer prosecution of a death by careless driving charge even in some pretty dodgy circumstances. )

Heard him making an apology that he had been a bad boy,

bollocks, he is only sorry he got caught, (grassed up). Bring back the noose for these dicks.

I know people

who have done it, it's not something trivial, the actual act of taking the points for someone else may seem trivial and not exactly 'criminal' compared to other crimes but where it gets serious is the fact  that 'perverting the course of justice' is a crime punishable by a prison term which is the ruination of the lives of mere mortals, a criminal record that would preclude many from employment plus the actual speeder has got away with it and will possibly go on to commit other speeding offences which may lead to something more serious like --- knocking a motorcyclist off ? I don't think what some have done re taking points for others should be trivialised otherwise where would you draw the line ? one day taking points for others the next telling lies under oath maybe ?

I don't suppose Huhne and his ex are exactly skint or a short spell in clink is going to bankrupt them like it would mere mortals. The book/books will see them through, He's done major damage to his family which is presumably giving him some guilt to live with, possibly not  though.
