A tale from the Court - Welcome back by raistlin

Some of you may be aware that I resigned as a Magistrate at the start of the year. However, I was persuaded to revoke my resignation in favour of a sort of sabbatical.

Long story short, I decided not to resign but to continue and returned to Court for the first time last month. One of the cases which I dealt with was a long term shoplifter whom I knew well from previous cases.

She was held in custody and so was brought up from the cells by dock officers. Taking her position in the dock, she scanned the Bench and her face suddenly drained of colour and, in fact, she appeared somewhat unsteady on her feet. Her advocate was summoned to the dock and she had these words for him, forgetting, I assume, that there was a microphone in the dock which picked up every word:-

"F*** me, I thought you said that old Bas*** had resigned. Didn't you say he'd resigned. What the f*** is he doing sitting there large as life? He still looks like a bulldog licking piss off a thistle. F*** this, I might as well go straight back down to the cells now."

Now, that's what I call a welcome back :)

Always good to read these stories - did she plead guilty?
