7:00AM BST 10 Oct 2012





Constance Briscoe, one of the first black women to sit as a judge in Britain, was arrested at her south London home at the weekend.


She has been released on bail and suspended from the judiciary while the investigation against her continues.


However in an unusual move neither Kent Police nor the Office for Judicial Complaints would say anything about the allegations against her.


Miss Briscoe, who grew up in south London, studied law at Newcastle and was called to the bar in 1983. She worked as a criminal lawyer before being appointed a crown court recorder in 1996. She has worked as a specialist rape prosecutor and is a barrister at 9-12 Bell Yard chambers.


But she is best known for her private life. In 2006 she published an autobiography, called Ugly, in which she claimed she had attempted suicide by drinking bleach and had been abused as a child by her parents

Another 'triumph over adversity' coming up??

Look at the Wolverhampton University website and there is a hagiographic tribute to Constance Briscoe which begins:

Constance Briscoe, Barrister, judge and author

Judging Myself and Others: An Inspiring Tale of Triumph over Adversity

The lecture

In this lecture, Constance shared her experiences of overcoming a number of personal and professional challenges to establish herself not only as a leading barrister and judge but also a highly successful author.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

So maybe she will 'triumph over adversity' yet again?

This is just pure conjecture, but if she has risen above abuse and is a campaigner against abuse, then could she have uncovered something which she is now being silenced for. We have seen the good and honest being blackened re the Haut de la Garenne, Holly Craig etc.

I think I'll wait to see what comes out and then look at it very critically and at those charges (and those making charges) against her.

A Daily Mail report says that the charges can't be revealed due to legal reasons!

She seems a fearless woman undaunted by naming names.

I've never heard of that name PeterMac and can't find anything relevant on the Internet. Are you able to elaborate?

CHRIS Huhne, extreme Europhiliac, former LibDem Cabinet Minister, who fell from grace after he left his wife (Vicky Price, well-known ecomonist) for a lesbian-bisexual called Carina Trimingham, and then his wife hit back by saying: 'The swine made me take points on my licence when he was guilty of speeding'. Both of them are now being done for perverting the course of justice. This judge apparently knew both Vicky Price and Chris Huhne.

Chris Huhne in trouble?
