Bashed paramedic overwhelmed by public support after attackers walk free

Paramedic Paul Judd has welcomed the support of the public after his attackers walked free from court on Monday.

Amanda Warren and Caris Underwood, who attacked Judd in 2016, had their appeal upheld.

He told Neil Mitchell the support of the public was “very nice” after a challenging few years.

“It’s always nice to have the support of the public,” Mr Judd said.

Despite his ordeal, he said he still loved his job.

“It has its ups and down and has its confrontations,” he said.

“In general, it’s a good job to get up to (every morning).

“I think the fact (his attackers) didn’t (go to jail) not only has affected the way I think but my concern is for every other emergency workers.

“Unfortunately I’ve been subjected to the low point towards the end of my career but I’m still looking to get back to it.”
