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.

In the last week or do I have been involved in a number of fascinating cases that involve revealing aspects of human nature and a few bits of brand-new law, in one case accompanied by a right try-on by the CPS.

I can't blog any of it, because the cases are sufficiently out of the ordinary to be readily identifiable. I shall therefore have to wait for a few months to allow some cases to appear that will let me merge and composite them with the recent ones so that I can anonymise them.
