A woman who brutally attacked an elderly woman at a bus stop ended up on Facebook after the incident because the judge refused to suppress her name.

Cori Glencross, 23, attacked the 75-year-old at a bus stop in Geelong in Victoria in April.

An application for a closed court order to prevent her name from being released was rejected.

Glencross argued that her personal safety was at risk when her trial was published in the media, after social media recoil about the viral video.

Her lawyer Shelley Buchecker said there were several Facebook messages that showed that Glencross could be in danger after the incident.

If Glencross got its way, the media would not have been allowed to report details about its case.

But Magistrate Ann McGarvie rejected the suppression order under Australia's suspicion of open justice, the Geelong advertiser reported.

Magistrate McGarvie said that Glencross & # 39; had been stolen with shoplifting and committing crimes during a bail between November 2018 and March this year.

During the incident, Glencross's friend filmed the attack and uploaded it to social media, where it was watched by many people and picked up by news organizations

& # 39; The most serious allegations, however, relate to an uprising and kicking attack that took place on 16 April 2019 against an elderly woman at a bus stop in Geelong.

During the incident, Glencross's friend filmed the attack and uploaded it to social media, where it was watched by many people and picked up by news organizations.

Magistrate McGarvie acknowledged that Glencross was named on social media and was embarrassed and heavily investigated.

& # 39; Although this message is cruel, humiliating and humiliating, there is no evidence in those comments of any threats to its security & # 39 ;, McGarvie said.

& # 39; Case law clearly states that orders that affect open justice should not be given because the person would be embarrassed, ashamed and humiliated.

Magistrate McGarvie said that public interest in open justice surpasses the protection of individual reputations.

& # 39; It will embarrass her, it will humiliate her and it will shame her. However, I am not convinced that a closed court order is necessary and the request is rejected & she said.
