His honour Judge Rhys Rowlands QC dealt with two separate rape cases, the first one was PC Ian James Clarke of North Wales Police who worked at the major crime unit in St Asaph alongside DC Don Kenyon and Inspector Jason Davenport, you would have read about Ian James Clarke on this blog a few posts back, so you’ll already be familiar with the story.
There is something I can’t quite get my head around, His honour Judge Rowlands told PC Clarke of St Peter’s Park, Northorp, Mold “you have been convicted of the most serious offence of rape, not only did you behave in a wholly disgraceful and immoral way that night, but you took advantage of a woman you thought was badly affected by drink, she was not” the judge told him. So this judge knows this case inside out, he has sat and listened throughout Mr Clarke’s trial and after being found guilty he sentenced him to 5 years imprisonment.
I’m going to point out a few facts here, Ian James Clarke was a police officer in a position of trust and married to a police officer; Clarke couldn’t accept being found guilty, he tried to drag his wife down with him, telling people it was an agreed threesome, this is what the coward Clarke was telling people in prison. No statement was given in to say it was an agreed threesome by his wife. Judge Rowlands said the victim in this case had given her evidence with remarkable strength, a victim impact statement was read out to the judge.
Detective Superintendent Joe Williams from North Wales Police Protection of Vulnerable People’s Unit said Ian Clarke has been imprisoned for five years for a very serious offence of rape. To someone who is unsure as to what the police badge means as the profession of policing has evolved over the years, it is a most visible symbol of service that has taken on an almost iconic meaning, from a practical standpoint officers wear the badge as a means to identify who they are and who they work for, the law-enforcement badge is easily recognisable sign of legal authority, the badge symbol means:
To protect and serve…….not to rape women and not of fit people up.
Take a look at the full story from the Paedophile post below:
Now let’s look at the case against Mark Hall, just a couple of months after the previous case His Honour Judge Rhys Rowlands also had the advantage of hearing Mark Hall’s trial, Mark was also found guilty by a jury, we have to respect the jury’s decision although juries sometimes do get it wrong as I have pointed out on the previous posts. Mark too was sentenced at Mold Crown Court, the same as PC Ian Clarke.
The judge in this case, in his own words when jailing Mark Hall at Mold Crown Court to 6 years imprisonment, the judge said “the case involved Hall clinically taking advantage of the victim”, the definition of clinical in English is
1.) Relating to the observation and treatment of actual patients rather than theoretical or laboratory studies.
2.) Very efficient and without feeling coldly detached nothing was left to chance everything was clinical.
Remember what the Judge told Clarke, “you have been convicted of the most serious offence of rape” yet only gave him five years imprisonment and not forgetting his job being in a position of trust.
Every rape case in Great Britain, the victim gives a victim impact statement, in a very unusual case ie; the Mark Hall case, the victim decided not to give a victim impact statement. I can’t get my head round how the Judge passed a six-year prison sentence, the parole board take these victim impact statements into account before deciding whether a criminal should be released or what, if any restrictions are required.
Am I right to say readers of the blog, that the parole board should release Mr Hall from custody as the ‘victim’ in this case couldn’t be bothered making the statements?
Judge Rowlands says, Hall must register as a sex offender indefinitely and a restraining order was made, when you read this you must be as shocked as I am. We put our trust in law lords to write the law and the judges to apply it correctly and fairly, how dare Mark’s legal team go and see him in the cells after sentencing & convince a man who is dyslexic and doesn’t understand the law, telling him you’ve had a good sentence as you could have got 8 years. Mark being naïve, thought he’d done well. Disgusting.
I think Mark Hall’s family need an urgent meeting and should draw up a petition, get it signed so that the Right Honourable Prime Minister Theresa May could have this case looked at, as this case is flawed and rotten to the core.
Please read below what victim impact statements are:
” Victim statements may include descriptions of physical, emotional, financial, medical and other consequences of a crime. These statements allow the victims of crimes to add their voice to the proceedings in order to impact the judge or board responsible for making decisions about sentencing. Judges may listen to the impact statements in order to figure out how long someone should go to jail. A parole board might take the statements into account before deciding whether a criminal should be released, and what conditions the board should attach to their release. Besides affecting sentencing, according to the website Victims of Crime, victim impact statements are often useful to victims because they can be cathartic. After all, during the trial, the victims usually have a very limited ability to talk at all about their side of the story. Lawyers ask very narrow questions, and the victim’s opinions aren’t taken into account. Having a chance to read their side in open court can often be a crucial part of the psychological process of healing from any type of crime ”
A lay person may not understand how important this statement is and once again somebody who was been raped should apply to the criminal injuries board for compensation.
Here’s a few articles out of the paper about evil women crying wolf, it does happen and I know it’s very hard to understand why a lady would do this to a man. Finally, Mark Hall continues to deny this allegation that was made against him, again just spare a thought for him on how he must be feeling in prison having been convicted with this heinous crime.
Once again thank you for the emails and comments, I keep telling you I can’t publish comments with foul language, I know some comments are nothing to do with this post, they are going on about Gary Sky from the Maelgwyn and how many girls he had in the back of his transit, I promise you it’s all going to come out shortly.
