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.

A Welcome Newcomer

The Probation Officer's Blog is a welcome addition to the links on the sidebar. Probation is an essential (albeit unglamorous, underfunded and often misunderstood) part of the Criminal Justice system; we have been getting some high-quality and well-informed debate in the comments recently, and Probation input will be welcome.
