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.

Doherty Finally Potted
Pete Doherty, the famous and drug-raddled singer has finally exhausted the patience of West London Magistrates' Court and has had his suspended sentence activated. He was sentenced to 14 weeks prison, which I calculate as: 98 days, less half remission, leaving 49 days, less 19 days early administrative release because the jails are full, leaving 30 days to serve. His community order will probably have been revoked, so all the drug rehabilitation and supervision will end - he doesn't seem to have done much of it anyway. Any bets on what happens when he comes out?
