Watch-house assault officer to be re-sentenced

By johnboy 30 September 2008 122

The ABC reports that John Arthur Birch, the former police officer who was found guilty of nine counts of administering a substance to cause pain and discomfort in the Civic watch-house has had his three month suspended sentence overturned on the ground that it was “manifestly inadequate” according to the visiting Justice Steven Rares who heard the appeal.

Birch will now be re-sentenced.

not sure about that, I’ve seen some big cops.

I love how the story ends in “Police are investigating the death.”

Yeah – I wonder what came out of that investigation. It’ll tell you – f**kin’ zilch!
