Three police chiefs are calling for a Teesside Crown Court Judge to be investigated after they claim a Teesside Judge has let down a domestic violence victim.

Northumbria Police’s Vera Baird, Cleveland Police’s Barry Coppinger and Durham Constabulary Ron Hogg have called for an investigation after a 34-year-old man was convicted at Teesside Crown court of assault occasioning actual bodily harm was sentenced to a 12 month jail sentence which was suspended for 12 months.

The offender who cannot be named subjected his victim to biting, physical attacks which often involved a knife.

He shot her in the toe during one terrifying incident, police investigated the incident and quickly arrested the man.

He then began intimidating his victim to drop the charges however the victim wanted the charges to be dealt with by the courts.

The three police & crime commissioners now believe judge George Moorhouse has been unduly lenient in his sentencing.

They have now sent a letter to the Judicial Conduct and investigations Office.
