I hadn`t intended to put finger to keyboard this morning.  A close relative can`t make up his mind whether I am a geek, an anorak or a nerd but the news that the government intends us to have sentencing powers increased from 6 months to 12 months custody is interesting having been mooted for a decade or more.  The Times headline says it all; this proposal is geared to “saving money”  and creating yet another headline for Chris Grayling as opposed to any sense that the administration of justice will be more efficient or equitable for all concerned parties.  However the...

Police: Search for Ashya King battery life on the machine that administers his food likely to have expired

Written by RSS Poster Crime and Justice - UK Crime News
“Ashya is still missing, and with each hour that passes our concern for him grows.
“Within the last hour, we have been told by medical experts that the battery life on the machine that administers his food is now likely to have expired. We don’t know whether the King family have any spares, the knowledge, or any way of recharging the battery.  If they don’t, without properly administered food, Ashya’s condition will deteriorate very quickly.
“Our message remains the same: please help us find him. Please visit the Hampshire Police website or Hampshire Constabulary Facebook page and share the appeal and the photos of Ashya, his mum and dad Brett and Naghmeh, and the car that they were travelling in when they left for Cherbourg.
“We have had a good response to widespread media coverage, with people who know the King family calling in.

“So far, we have had one reported sighting of the family, which was on the ferry to...

A recent sitting was unusual in that two cases had unusual features  to say the least.  Kylie had just turned eighteen when she appeared on a charge of breach of a community order; namely a tagged curfew which began daily at 9.00p.m.  She admitted the breach which had occurred when she was still a youth.  Her representative, however, took us through her recent history as far as it was relevant.  Her current residence was at the home of the  third foster mother she had had in as many years.   He told us that she had been waiting outside the address since 8.55p.m. for the arrival of...
