R -v- Fairweather Judges sentencing remarks

April 29, 2016, 2:59 pm

James Fairweather, you may remain seated for the time being. I have to sentence you for two brutal and sadistic murders committed when you were only 15 years old. You are now 17. Your 18th birthday is in 3 months time on 5th August. For murder there is only one sentence prescribed by law: life imprisonment. Because you were under 18 when you committed these murders your life sentence has to be expressed as detention at Her Majesty’s Pleasure. That is the sentence I shall pass in due course, but I am also required to determine the minimum period you must serve in custody before you are even eligible to be considered for release on parole. Despite your young age that will be a very long period indeed. 2. You were convicted of these two offences of murder by the jury after a trial. You admitted the killings and had pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished...

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
My first memory of being involved with the police was when I was about 12 or 13 years old.  Outside the council flat where I was brought up I idly threw a pebble towards a telegraph pole when waiting impatiently for a friend to turn up.  A police motorcyclist happened to ride by at that very moment and when asked I casually admitted to him that I had indeed thrown the pebble.......about the size of an old fashioned shilling.  He took my name and address.  The long and short of this sorry tale is that I appeared with my father some weeks later at the local police station to be given a stern warning from a sergeant about any similar future hooligan conduct.   The next occasion I had imprinted on my mind about police activity was when shortly after becoming professionally qualified and days  after I had bought but couldn`t afford a shiny new red sports convertible I had to collect it from the local police car pound where it had been taken for illegal parking.  There was a deep ten inch scratch along one side.  When...

Police: Online extortion demands affecting businesses

Written by RSS Poster ActionFraud's blog

Within the past 24 hours a number of businesses throughout the UK have received extortion demands from an online hacking group. 

The group have sent emails demanding payment of 5 Bitcoins to be paid by a certain time and date. The email states that this demand will increase by 5 Bitcoins for each day that it goes unpaid.

If their demand is not met, they have threatened to launch a Denial of Service attack against the businesses’ websites and networks, taking them offline until payment is made.

The demand states that once their actions have started, they cannot be undone.

What to do if you’ve received one of these demands?

  • Report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or by using the online reporting tool.
  • Do not pay the demand.
  • Retain the original emails (with headers).
  • Maintain a timeline of the attack, recording all times, type and content of the contact.

A man who squirted ammonia at a shopkeeper during an attempted robbery in Newcastle has been jailed for four years.

Danny Nichol, 24, of Strathmore Crescent, Newcastle, went into the Best One shop on Baxter Avenue, Fenham, just before 8.25am on Thursday January 7, 2015.

He demanded the shopkeeper hand over money from the till and squirted her in the face with a substance – later found to be ammonia – before running from the shop empty handed.

Detective Sergeant Gill Beecroft, who led the investigation, said: “Nichol is a dangerous man who thought nothing of entering the Best One shop...

Police: Alert: Fake puppies and kittens for sale online

Written by RSS Poster ActionFraud's blog

Action Fraud has received a rise in the reporting of pets, and in particular puppies and kittens, being advertised for sale via popular online auction websites.

Fraudsters are placing adverts online using stolen photos of pets claiming they are currently held abroad or somewhere less accessible within the UK.

Once a sale is agreed and payment is made, usually by money transfer or bank transfer, the pet does not materialise. The fraudsters will usually ask for further advanced payments to cover courier charges, shipping fees or vet bills.

Even if further payments are made, the pet will still not materialise as it is likely that the pet does not exist.

Stay within auction guidelines to avoid being scammed:

  • Be cautious if the seller initially requests payment via one method, but later claims that due to ‘issues with their account’ they will need to take the payment via an alternative method such as a bank transfer.
  • Consider conducting research on other information provided by the seller, for example a...
