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.

And They Say Our Sentences Are Never Realistic

Convicted fraudster Bernard Madoff has been sentenced to 150 years in jail for orchestrating the largest fraud America has ever seen.

That's more like it!

Just one thing though - I suspect that he may never do the full term.

Call it a hunch, but I'm pretty shrewd about these things.
