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.

We dealt with a pretty unusual warrant last week. The officer said that he was attached to the ******** squad, and that he wanted to search for some ****, or at least evidence of it, because he suspected that the proceeds of the **** were being used to fund ********'s activities. The Information carried some heavily emphasised stuff about Public Immunity.
The application satisfied us, and we granted it.

Sorry I can't say more.
