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.

You Can't Please Everyone........

I think the Mags will believe the police officer is evidence enough. Unless you have Mags who don't believe that all police officers are perfect and would never mislead or exaggerate ;)

This quote from the Criminal Solicitor dot Net site amused me, in the light of the constantly repeated complaints from police commentators who see magistrates and courts as relentlessly anti-police.
If defence briefs and the Old Bill all think the beaks are biased against them, then perhaps we might be getting things about right.
