Musings and Snippets from a recently retired JP. I served for 31 years, mostly in west London. I was Chairman of my Bench for some years, and a member of the National Bench Chairmen's Forum All cases are based on real ones, but anonymised and composited. All opinions are those of one or more individuals. JPs swear to enforce the law of the land, whether or not they approve of it. Nothing on here constitutes legal advice.

This is an unusual but sensible decision. It's a sensitive case, and the public need to see it as being fairly heard. A jury is not an option, so Tim Workman will sit with two lay colleagues. Good.
