Killer who claimed she was too fat to go to prison is deservedly jailed
Linda Ann Jenns is a 30-stone woman who killed a jogger after jumping a red light in her Ford Kuga car in Kent. She was described as “grossly overweight” and “morbidly obese” by her barrister and as a woman “who might not get through [a prison sentence]”. Sense has prevailed and now she has been rightly jailed for two-and-a-half years.
Unusually allowed to access Canterbury Crown Court through side doors to avoid the public after an application from her lawyers, Jenns, who also lied to the court and tried to blame the innocent pedestrian she killed for crossing in front of her, should be a lesson to us all: Nobody is above the law.
