It is axiomatic that when one is exercising a judicial function emotions must be firmly parked on one side, and the case considered in the light of the law and of any appropriate guidelines.

Nevertheless, when dealing with a case of a carer who had systematically stolen money from the accounts of people he was supposed to be caring for (we had no hesitation in sending the case up to the Crown Court) I could not avoid a sense of distaste as the defendant stepped out of the dock, bail form in hand.
