Stacey Worsley, 32, gambled away £140,000 from her four-year-old son’s cancer treatment fund. Suspended sentence.

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in March 2019:

Our thanks to Steve and others for this. An extract:

The judge told Worsley: “You became overwhelmed by the situation in which you found yourself.

“No-one could fail to be moved by your story.

“You were under enormous pressure and I have no doubt that all of this started as a result of you wanting to raise the money for his treatment.”

Worsley racked up £140,000 in gambling debts but the judge noted she had not spent any of the money on “luxuries” for herself.

Judge Kearl said: “This case is unique. The confluence of mitigating factors takes it far outside the norm and are unlikely to recur.”

Male criminals never have such a “confluence of mitigating factors”, to escape punishment completely.
