A 66-year old, wheelchair-bound British prisoner was just given another six months in prison for slapping a female guard on her rear-end.
An inmate nearing the end of his sentence has been jailed for an extra six months after repeatedly slapping a female prison officer’s backside.
Paul Morgan, 66, laughed when the guard at HMP Wormwood Scrubs challenged him, saying he ‘just got a bit excited’. But he broke down in tears as a judge extended his sentence for an act of ‘degradation and humiliation’ against a ‘vulnerable’ victim who was ‘just doing her job’.
The wheelchair-bound prisoner was soon to be released from the Category B prison, where he was sent for harassment and breaching a restraining order, when the unnamed officer turned her back on him on July 3.
This is ridiculous. Sure, Morgan shouldn’t have slapped the guard’s ass, but he’s 66-years old, and will be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He is obviously not a security risk, keeping him in prison for another six months is idiotic.
She told the court: ‘He slapped my buttocks multiple times with both hands. I would never consent to a prisoner touching me there.’
If twenty-seven years in police work taught me anything, that quote is almost always a lie.
