Judge Jeffrey Rucker – Truro Crown Court
Here is Judge Jeffrey Rucker. He is a judge who seems to think that the abuse of children is not a serious enough crime to warrant a custodial sentence. He fails to understand the long lasting impact these evil offences have on the young and vulnerable child survivors. The sentences are quite simply a insult to the victims involved.
Judge Jeffrey Rucker you are hereby NAMED AND SHAMED !
Below are some examples and quotes of some of his more questionable judgements (click names for full profile)
October 2007 – Child rapist Simon Foster, 26, had his sentence from Judge Rucker doubled after the Court of Appeal ruled it was too short.
Judge Rucker had origionaly given Foster, a chef from South Devon, just two years for raping his 12-year-old victim whom he had met over the Internet – the Court of Appeal increased the term to four years. Foster was jailed at Exeter Crown Court in June 2007 by Judge Rucker, after he admitted a series of sexual offences against the child, including two counts of rape. Foster broke his sex offenders register order in 2010
December 2003 – Judge Rucker spared Joseph Denley, 79, of Penzance, jail in December 2003 because of his fragile health. Denley had been convicted of 41 charges of indecent assault involving 23 pupils at Marazion Primary School.
