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.

There's an old saying that goes:- "If drug dealing pays so well, why do most dealers live with their Mum?"

In the last week I have seen a heroin dealer with heavy gold jewellery, a Porsche, a Rolex, and twenty grand hidden away in cash. He lives with his mum in a semi.
