Jake Clarke found guilty of harassment

In a post on Facebook, Belinda McKenzie announced late yesterday that Jake Clarke has been found guilty on one charge of harassment against two unnamed persons, presumably in relation to the Hampstead SRA hoax. The trial took place over two days at Willesden Magistrates Court.

Jake was found not guilty of a second charge of “upsetting” people at the Church of England Synod in February. (Does she mean “harassing”? “Upsetting” somebody isn’t a crime to our knowledge.)

Jake’s barrister apparently put forth a freedom of speech argument, but the magistrates considered that since Jake had been visited by police and warned that his behaviour constituted harassment, he “knew or ought to have known” that what he was doing would be subject to criminal charges.

Sentencing is scheduled to take place on 17 October, according to Belinda.

We were not surprised to note that Belinda glossed over the fact that a young man’s life has now been seriously adversely affected by a criminal record, because of the encouragement he received from the Hoaxtead mob to continue his behaviour.

Instead, she claimed a “small victory in the ongoing fight for improved police reaction to allegations of crimes against children”. Seems a bit rich, considering that she has advocated publicly for amnesty for paedophiles, so long as they weep and apologise.

Belinda also blatantly stirs up her willing mob by claiming, “SO FAR WHISTLEBLOWERS’ COMPUTERS AND PHONES ARE SEIZED BY POLICE BUT NOT THOSE OF SUSPECTS REPORTED BY CHILD VICTIMS”.

Do we really need to explain to Belinda again that the “suspects reported by child victims” were fully exonerated not only during the police investigation in September 2014, but during the High Court judgment in March 2015, and again during the appeal of that judgment in August 2015?

Incidentally, Belinda is sailing a bit close to the wind here, as she is, so far as we know, still under an injunction which prevents her from publishing about this case online.

  1. I’ve reread that several times. Could anyone point out the “small victory”?

    However, max sentence is 6 months so I don’t expect what the man on the Clapham omnibus would call a deterrent to these loons.

  2. Good question. I checked various sources and was unable to find anything conclusive about discussing possible sentences following conviction, except in one case where a pair of journalists were cautioned about reporting anything which had not been discussed in court already. https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/journalists-given-contempt-of-court-warning-over-influencing-sentencing-judge-in-hacker-case/

    Just in case, though, I’ll delete any reference to sentencing until it’s complete in a couple of weeks. Thanks for pointing this out.

  3. Ah, here we are.

    According to the Channel 4 producer’s handbook,

    In short, once legal proceedings become “active”, it is a criminal offence for media organisations to broadcast material which would create “a substantial risk of serious prejudice” to the proceedings. Criminal proceedings become “active” as soon as one of the following has occurred: a person is arrested, a warrant for arrest is issued, a summons has been issued, or a person has been charged, and they remain so until such time as the accused has been acquitted or convicted….

    Once a person has been acquitted or sentenced, or the proceedings come to an end in some other way, proceedings cease to be ‘active’ and there is much more scope for commenting on the proceedings and the convicted person and publishing material which it was not possible to disseminate before or during the trial. In practice, once a defendant has been convicted, even if they have not been sentenced (sometimes sentencing is delayed), the media treats the proceedings as no longer ‘active’. This is because sentencing in the Crown Court is carried out by professional judges who the law deems will not easily be prejudiced by media reports.

    …(A)lthough professional judges are largely considered to be immune to prejudicial media reporting, some courts are presided over by lay people (most Magistrates’ Courts), and the law assumes that such people can be prejudiced.

  4. Yes we can. He has been found guilty, so for the purposes of contempt the case is over. He is, as of the verdict, guilty. That they may be requesting sentencing reports is moot. They would he from professionals. No further comments can influence the court’s decision. A jury are peers which is why it is so important to keep a tight reign on matters. Judges and magistrates are held legally to be above public influence.

  5. Has anyone noticed if Belinda’s head on the right way around on her shoulders! How anyone could call that a victory must be speaking out of a wonky brain.

    As regards to the Policeman mumbling, Belinda, have you listened to yourself giving that speech the other day/night!

  6. Freedom of speech to harass people? Another awesome bit of lawyering. SMH

    PS: I’d like to express my freedom of speech and state that Jake Clarke is an utter twat. There, I said it.

  13. For goodness sake, the law does NOT assume that magistrates can be prejudiced just from a press report; if it did there wouldn’t be much point having them would there? They are simply subject to the same restrictions as any other member of the judiciary – they can’t deal with people they know well or in issues where they have an interest, and that’s all. They’re quite different from jurors who are selected at random with no training or appraisal.

    You can comment as much as you like post conviction provided it wouldn’t otherwise be illegal.

  15. It is a conspiracy among the core participants and we know who they are. APD’s insane claim she has been “working on the case” when what she means is she has been harassing and making endless false claims about a man & his kids and other North London residents who have already been cleared in the courts with a judge proclaiming they are victims of a campaign to harass.

    As for Bellend- she is determined to treat Jake like he is some sort of Martyr and will most likely encourage him in that belief and he will end up in further trouble. God only knows what his despairing parents must think.

    The particular police officer in charge of the case should sue Bellend for libel as well. He does not deserve to have his reputation smeared by her.

  19. Something about Malky being a nonce man who stopped spinning when he became Karen Irvine (whoever she is), which resulted in him getting harassed by Jake Clarke, who wanted to refute the scurrilous allegations…er…er…nope, sorry – I’ve got nothing.

  20. What a strange world it is today. All I ever had to worry about was my homework.

    Nowadays kids have to worry about their homework and whether or not their parents will get sued because of the You Tube videos they make. Just sayin’.

    p.s. In the USA parents are legally responsible for what their kids get up to.

  23. Personally I think Jake needs to man up. If he is on something, clean up & go & get a frigging job. If his parents are enabling him, they need to stop, tell him the lie of the land . “If you are living under our roof, you live by our rules, if you don’t work, you don’t eat”.

    Parental responsibility needs to be acknowledged, he has been allowed to fart about with his stupid notions for far too long.
