Sentencing delay a crime against taxpayers

The Editor, I find it just incredible that some seven years have passed since Debbie Judd effectively stole $175,000 from the piggy banks of children in Richmond via the RYSA and she still has not been sentenced.

The Editor,

I find it just incredible that some seven years have passed since Debbie Judd effectively stole $175,000 from the piggy banks of children in Richmond via the RYSA and she still has not been sentenced.

We now find out the court needs another four months to come to a conclusion, I would call it a joke but it's not funny. The socalled "justice system" has turned into an industry of its own: lawyers, the courts, the experts, etc. each grabbing a teat and milking the justice cow of cash until it falls over with exhaustion.

How much money is this costing the taxpayer? Seven years is a very long time.

War criminal cases involving several hundred witnesses are concluded quicker than this. I would suggest starting an investigation into whether sheer incompetence played a roll in this delay or is it just par for the course, but I don't have another five years to wait for the answer.

Well, they do say, "Justice delayed is justice denied" but maybe it should be, "Justice delayed is just more earnings implied."
