The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

That's A New One

We had a TWOCcer hobble into the custody dock on crutches the other day, complete with multiple cuts and bruises, the result of his crashing a stolen car after a lunatic chase. He wasn't able to deny, as so often happens, that he was the driver, because forensics had already got a DNA result from the airbag that had inflated in his face when the car finally crashed.
