Paramedic attackers still out on bail

Amanda Warren, 31, and Caris Underwood, 20, punched and kicked veteran paramedic Paul Judd as he and another paramedic; Chenaye Bently tried to treat a patient at suburban Reservoir in April 2016. They were both intoxicated after a day-long binge on bourbon, champagne and cannabis.
Paul has still been unable to return to work after this incident and has had four operations on his foot to try and repair the horrific damaged caused by these two women.
Victorian laws introduced in 2014 demand a mandatory minimum jail term of six months for anyone who intentionally injures an emergency worker, unless there are “special reasons”.
Warren, 31, was jailed for eight months and Underwood, 21, received four months when the pair were sentenced in the Melbourne Magistrates Court. However, both these women have appealed their sentences and are still currently out on bail. Their next court date is in May 2018. This is disgusting that there was such outrage and a call for something to be done yet nothing has been. These women are still out living their lives with no care about what crime they committed against the emergency personnel.
“It is incomprehensible why anyone would assault an ambulance officer,” “These are not authority figures. These are helping figures. This was an assault lasting some duration ... that requires denunciation by the court."
Please help by signing the petition to make it public that these women should be facing the consequences of the crime they have committed, and sooner rather than later.
