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 New Take On Granny's Pot Plant

A lady of 68 who the press persist in calling a granny (I am a granddad, but no journo has ever referred to the fact) has been convicted of offences involving cannabis and given community service. By all accounts she is something of a willing martyr and appears to have been leading with her chin for some time.
So what community work shall we give her? A bit of supervised crochet? Baking scones to give to the elderly? (whoops, that won't do) Certainly no gardening in the local OAPs'home, for fear of what she might grow.
Tricky. I am sure that some of you can do better than I.
