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.

He may well have committed a further offence. In that case the authorities must keep it under wraps, because he could not otherwise hope to have a fair trial in front of a jury.
He and his accomplice have received hugely expensive education and supervision since they killed a toddler while they were children themselves.
If that has not worked in this case, that does not create an argument for not trying rehabilitation in future cases.
That's about all we know, or will know for some time, about this.
