Judge rules that abusive man can’t have a girlfriend

I fucking love this judge.

A judge has ruled that a 24-year-old Canadian man is not allowed to have a girlfriend for the next three years. The ruling came after Steven Cranley pleaded guilty on Tuesday to several charges stemming from an assault on a former girlfriend.
He tried to prevent her from phoning the police by cutting her phone cord and punched and kicked her.

Doctors say Cranley has difficulty coping with rejection and runs a high risk to re-offend if he becomes involved in another intimate relationship.
Justice Rhys Morgan ruled that Cranley “cannot form a romantic relationship of an intimate nature with a female person…That is the only way I can see the protection of the public is in place until you get the counseling you need.”
Okay, I’m generally not for the courts prohibiting folks from relationships…but excuse me if in this case I just don’t give a fuck. And as reader Shelby, who sent in the link, put it: “At last, a judge that places the blame where it belongs!”
