Man jailed for attack on judge
Tuesday 04 June 2013
A fitness instructor who attacked a judge and knocked off his wig has been jailed for 18 months after admitting contempt of court.
Paul Graham, 27, of Haverhill in Suffolk, raced from the public gallery and vaulted over a gate before throwing punches at Judge John Devaux at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday.
Judge Devaux had just sentenced his brother, Philip Graham, 30, of the same address, to 30 months in prison for causing death by dangerous driving.
Appearing in handcuffs before Judge David Goodin, he admitted contempt. He was flanked in the dock by three security guards and an extra guard stood by the exit.
