A judge has offered to pay the fines of a teenager convicted within his court.
He refused to jail her for stabbing the paedophile who abused her when she was a child.
The judge named Jonathan Durham Hall QC saved the 15 year old from jail saying it would be a disgrace to jail her.
He refused to impose a mandatory victim surcharge on the girl as she appeared at Bradford Crown Court.
The judge said if anyone attempts to force her to pay any money he will pay the fine himself.
The judge heard that the paedophile had destroyed her life as he sexually abused her as an 8 year old girl.
