A prosecutor who used the word "predatory" to refer to a 13-year-old sex abuse victim has been stopped from working on similar cases. The Office for Judicial Complaints also said it had received complaints about remarks made by Judge Nigel Peters in the case in north London.
ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning's report contains explicit details of the court case.
Prosecutor Robert Colover is reported to have made the comments when describing the victim of paedophile Neil Wilson - who ultimately walked from court with an eight-month suspended sentence after admitting he had engaged in sexual activity with the girl at his home.
Mr Colover reportedly told a hearing at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court on Monday:
During his sentencing of Wilson His Honour Judge Peters QC said:
The remarks have caused widespread condemnation, with David Cameron called the incident, "inappropriate...We need a criminal justice system which stands up for victims, the victims of crime should always be at the centre of our thinking."
An online petition calling on the CPS to act has now garnered more than 40,000 signatures.
Both of the men are now being investigated, Judge Peters is now being investigated by the Office for Judicial Complaints and Mr Colover's remarks are being looked in to by the CPS.
The Shadow Attorney General has also written to the Chair of the Bar Standards Board to request an investigation to determine whether Robert Colover may have violated the Bar Standards Board’s code of conduct.
Neil Wilson admitted engaging in sexual activity with a child. He was handed a eight-month suspended sentence. Police also found images of child abuse and bestiality at Wilson's home in Romford, Essex.
