Prosecution barrister Kama Melly QC and junior counsel Sharon Beattie were heckled and verbally abused inside the court building late on Tuesday afternoon after the defendants had been found guilty.
Miss Melly said around 10 people had hung around the public concourse area.
The lawyers were the last to leave the courtroom when they spotted the group waiting at the top of a stairwell.
Miss Melly said the mob, including men and women, began a slow hand clap, calling them “corrupt”, “tramps” and telling them: “Hope you get raped”.
They immediately returned to the court offices and informed officials of the abuse.
And the police charged straight there and arrested them for breach of the peace, yes?
Police were called and the angry mob had their names taken and were barred from attending Wednesday’s sentencing hearing.
West Yorkshire Police is considering criminal charges.
They seem to be able to consider them a hell of a lot quicker in some cases than in others, don’t they?
