I Don't Believe It!

There was a case on our list this morning where the defendant faced two medium-ish charges. He was not in court because in the last week or so he has been given a 5 year stretch by a Crown Court in the North for something in the same line. For obvious reasons, he could not be with us.

To our amazement the CPS said that they were planning to continue the cases before us - presumably they justify the thousands of pounds this will cost by the hope of getting him another year or so consecutive, although there is no guarantee that the judge will not make it concurrent.

Best of all, the prosecutor said that the CPS were planning to apply for an ASBO - on a bloke doing a 5-stretch!

Words fail me.
