Example text

The target culture came from the Blair government so they could produce figures that would claim on paper that they were dealing with crime. The reality was that crimes were being downgraded so that they could be processed without trial. So if it’s a guilty plea, we will first hear the facts of the case from the Prosecutor. They will indicate the seriousness of the crime, and any other factors that we should take into account including any history of previous convictions. Because the defendant has pleaded guilty to the charge, the defence lawyer will then put forward any mitigation.

How I managed to be selected is one of life’s strange quirks and I was probably well placed with the hang-em and flog-em brigade. However, I had the belief that criminals or, as I shall call them, convicts, should be punished and victims compensated. That said, one of the major advantages of magistrates is that they cover the entire spectrum of personalities from softy to toughie. Magistrates are essentially unpaid volunteers. This means that they do not get any form of salary, but they do get a limited amount of expenses for car travel, meals etc, all carefully checked and in line with the prescriptive requirements.

A note from a winger supports the chairman’s intervention to ask if there is anything else relevant as the case has been well covered. Throughout all cases, we all make copious notes of what is said by the prosecutor, defendants and witnesses because this is what we refer to when in the retiring room. Once a case has been heard, it is the time for any questions that the bench might have. I would ask each winger in turn if they have any questions, if there were, I would deliver the questions on their behalf.
