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.

I have put a poll on the sidebar (it's quite a long way down, I am afraid, but html is not really my sort of thing). It's about sex, since the subject seems to have aroused so much interest.

Later As the poll has passed 500, I shall now knock it on the head. About half of respondents went for my frivolous options, abut there was a significant minority for 14 as the right age. As I said before, it's the age gap that matters.
