Naomi Cameron, 31, was sentenced to eight weeks in prison yesterday after a judge heard she had ignored a community order imposed in July when she admitted two counts of common assault and two charges of criminal damage. Cameron got a woman in a headlock, yanked off her gold chain and caused her to drop her phone, which smashed, in an ugly struggle.
But when she was finally caged at Plymouth Crown Court, Cameron called judge Anna Richardson her a “stupid f****** cow” and bellowed “I thought you said she was a decent f****** judge” at her own lawyer, Nick Lewin.
The yob also assaulted an innocent bystander who tried to intervene her attack in November last year, the court had heard.
Her co-defendant Nicholas Farrage had been handed a community order with drug treatment and testing, Plymouth Live reports.
They were both arrested after a second Good Samaritan intervened in Plymouth city centre.
Cameron and Farrage both had a string of offences to her name including a conviction in 2015 when they were caught stealing equipment and personal belongings from staff at an NHS hospital.
Cameron’s sentencing for the latest offences was deferred in July to yesterday to assess if she could meet terms of her existing community order.
But Judge Richardson said the defendant’s contact with probation was intermittent, and she had repeatedly been arrested and investigated by police since July.
The judge noted Cameron, of Prince Rock, Plymouth, had lost her accommodation, and her personal circumstances were “unstable and insecure”.
However, she ultimately decided the woman failed to engage with authorities.
The judge gave the defendant credit for her guilty plea, sentencing her to eight weeks for the first common assault and a further six weeks for the second assault. She handed Cameron six weeks jail sentence fo the criminal damage, but this was to run concurrently, bringing the total sentence to 14 weeks.
She explained Cameron would serve half before being released on licence.
