Petition launched to ban Sophie attacker from Rossendale

First published in News Lancashire Telegraph: Photograph of the Author by

MORE than 1,000 people have signed a petition calling for one of the gang members who attacked murdered Sophie Lancaster’s boyfriend not to be allowed into Rossendale.

Danny Hulme was found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent against Robert Maltby in the same attack that saw 20-year-old Sophie murdered by teenagers Brendan Harris and Ryan Herbert.

But Sophie’s mum, Sylvia, revealed that Hulme’s 10-year licence had been relaxed last month to allow him to visit his family in Bacup.

Now, an e-petition, entitled ‘To stop Danny Hulme entering or visiting Rossendale’ has been started by Ang Smith and was approaching 1,200 signatures last night.

Sophie and Mr Maltby were attacked in Stubbylee Park, Bacup, in August 2007 because they were dressed in Goth-like clothing.

The gap-year student was kicked to death trying to protect her partner.

Sylvia, who formed the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, an anti-hate crime charity, in the wake of her daughter’s death, has taken up the matter with the probation service and the Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling.

Sylvia said: “I’m more than angry, I’m bewildered. When they were sentenced, it was stated then that they will not be allowed back into Rossendale.

“That’s one thing that you think: ‘Great, I can get on with my life’. Now, all of a sudden, he can. Have they not thought about the community?

“Anybody else, with a bit of common sense, would see that that isn’t right, to allow the perpetrator back into the area, where we could be shopping in the local shop and bump into him. I’m sure that can’t be right.”

E-petitions require 10,000 signatures before they earn the right to be discussed in Parliament.

Hulme, who was 16 at the time, his brother, Joseph, and a third boy, Daniel Mallet were all convicted of GBH against Mr Maltby.

Harris and Herbert were found guilty of murdering Sophie. Harris is serving a life-sentence while Herbert, who was given 16 years in prison, later had that term reduced by nine months following an appeal.

If an animal had acted the way this lot did that night they would of been put down. About mandatory sterilization for him and his other scum mates and brother to make sure they dont produce any thing like themselves. 10 years should of meant 10 years in this case not oh youve been a good boy you can go and get on with your life now. Sadly Sophie will never know that and possibly not Robert. Who are the real victims I wonder.

If anyone had any doubts about how our supposed justice system is skewed, this is a prime example.
How can the perpetrators needs be greater than those of the victims?
...
Some people need reminding about just whom the justice system is supposed to be representing. Obviously not, these two victims...

I agree what you say about this lad . If he had any feeling at all he wouldn't be asking and it should never be considered. But as for the parents unless we know them we shouldn't coment

When the story broke one of the little scrotes parents was described as laughing in court. Apparently she's somewhat of a Bacup celeb.

Yes, the parent of one of these herbets is frequently seen around town laughing off her head. Her photo was used on the Facebook page to save the Bacup fountain.
