Sean Carter’s Lawpsided View of the Law reports that a US Prosecutor was fined $5 for turning up 5 minutes late to Court.
It must have been a difficult moment when the Prosecutor arrived back at his office at the end of that day to explain that he had managed to have himself convicted, a little like a taxi driver running himself over,
Concern has been expressed that this is part of a worldwide legal movement to exclude the public from the legal process. The legal profession is taking turns to act as the accused and even sending each other to jail to avoid legal work.
After centuries of public complaint about the quality of legal services the lawyers have finally snapped and are “picking up their ball” and going home. “The Public frequently call for justice only to be bored stiff when they get it” said one lawyer ”Some of my clients ask “Are we there yet?” before I have even opened the file”.
The Prosecutor has appealed to the Court of Appeal.
