I hope he's in a top security wing ! After all it's only serious offenders that we should be putting in open prisons ! It will cost us more than £100 to put him up until Monday 19th May.

Probably not his first visit into either a shop without paying or a prison. Prolific repeat offenders end up in custody not first timers so the £100 is most likely just the latest of a long string of £100 or more thefts. Maybe next time you see a shop lifter you could offer to pay for the goods yourself and see how long your patience over £100 losses keeps going.

Well, he should look on the bright side- at least he won't need cosmetics where he's going. All he has to do is bend over in the shower to pick up the soap...

Argus, you make me sick. Your report does not say he has been found guilty but you allow comments on the case. Comments that could potentially prejudice his chance to a fair trial. And yet you deleted over 100 legitimate comments yesterday about the The Travellers in Surrenden Park and Moulescoomb. What a load of hypocrites you are!

In what way can expressing a view on the charges prejudice his trial?

Oh, I didn't know I was going to have to spell it out for you, but here goes............in English law a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. This is why the media (newspapers, TV, and radio) are careful to not make comments which assume his guilt before the case. , I know that sometimes they do just this, but they risk being sued. Not likely in this case I know but he is still entitled to a fair trial, as is everybody in this country - even you.

" which assume his guilt before the case."

So the fact that he is being tried doesn't mean that the CPS thinks he did it and that it has no evidence to show that he did it?

I'm so glad that I live in a country where people who haven't done anything wrong are arrested and charged on no grounds whatsoever.

So as long as no-one says anything that could prejudice the trial, we are free to comment.
