Is it beyond the power of the Judge to order her to face the court by means of her being dragged there if necessary?
Vile human being, as is the Father.
Her barrister stated "these were evil acts but she is not an evil person".
I beg to differ.
One can imagine the reaction of a Judge like Lord Carmont to being told the prisoner was refusing to leave their cell. I suspect he would have dispatched the biggest, ugliest copper he could find at short notice to drag the bitch into court by brute force. And then added a few years on to her sentence for Contempt of Court.
But of course, we live in more, "enlightened" times.
