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.

Sleep Soundly Tonight

A PC Wiley has issued an £80 fixed penalty to a young man who made a rather rude snow sculpture. My advice to the young man is to refuse the ticket - I don't think this one will stand up in court.
Seriously though, this will now go into the book as a Sanction Detection - a solved crime. Bear that in mind next time the Government claims that it has improved police performance.
