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.

From The Rumour Mill

The word on the street is that the CPS is currently being deluged with applications from defence solicitors who have looked at the future for their firm and decided that there isn't one. At one time the CPS was very much a second-line choice of career. Now some people are looking at Government antagonism to small law firms, and deciding that the CPS, with its bomb-proof Government pension and Civil Service conditions, is the place to be.
