The News Minute | July 6, 2014 | 6.53 pm ISTSo it turns out that India is not the only country with judges who have bizarre attitudes towards rape and rape convicts.According to a report in the Hull Daily Mail, the judge who sentenced the man was rather unhappy that the man had not pleaded guilty to the offence so that he â€œcould have passed a lighter sentenceâ€.Judge Micheal Mettyear was reported as saying: â€œ"It is a great shame you did not have the courage to say, 'I have made a terrible mistake and I am sorry'. That would have made it much easier for her and I could have passed a lighter sentence."Lee Setford was sentenced to five years in prison after being convicted of raping a sleeping woman in his house. The jury took around two hours to unanimously convict Setford, who was convicted for battery in 2009."She was a pretty girl who you fancied. You simply could not resist. You had sex with her."To be fair to the judge, he was sympathetic to the rape survivor: "She was clearly upset at the time," said Judge Mettyear. "The consequences continued. She was unable to work for a while. She has had to take anti-depressants. She has lost her cheerfulness and outgoing spirit."He also said that had Setford pleaded guilty, the woman would not have had to go through the ordeal again in court.
