Judge at Newcastle Crown Court Swears and Storms Out of Court
A convicted Judge who was up before the judges herself has stormed out of court swearing and cussing in a hissy fit that is sure to end her own career as a circuit judge. Judge Beatrice Bolton, 57, was in front of the beak after the crown prosecution service had charged her for failing to keep her dog under control.
The judge’s dog attacked a 20-year-old student lad as he sunbathed in the garden of his parents’ home. Fred Becker, was laying down and minding his own business when the Mrs Bolton’s dog, a German Shepard ran into the garden and bit Mr Becker on the leg. The incident happened in Rothbury in the north England county of Northumberland.
Judge Bolton had denied a charge brought against her under section 3 and 4 of the Dangerous Dogs act 1991, of failing to keep her under control. The judge was convicted and stormed out of the court swearing and generally throwing a hissy fit. The court had heard that Judge Bolton’s garden connected with Frederick Becker’s parents garden. It was an adjoining property garden and the German Shepard bit through Mr Becker’s black tracksuit trousers.
Mr Becker, who hails from Newcastle, had a bruise and a cut to his left leg. He did attend hospital but the injury was not severe enough to require anything but the most basic form of treatment.
