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.

Your Chance To Have A Say

The Sentencing Guidelines Council has issued a consultation on a comprehensive revision of the Magistrates' Court Sentencing Guidelines that is in progress. It's a big pdf, but it needs to be, because the new guidelines will cover a lot more offences than the previous ones.
Responses need to be in by May.
