Told You So

The man who killed and disposed of unwanted greyhounds has been sentenced today.
As I predicted at the time, he has been sentenced well within the magistrates' powers.
I always try (and our local Crown Court Resident Judge agrees) to deal with cases right up to the limit of our powers, to save the cost and delay of sending cases up for sentence. A surprisingly high proportion of committed cases end up being sentenced within the lower court's powers.
