Cell Service

So if a lag doesn't fancy the long trek to court in perhaps cold and wet weather, he can just ask for room (cell?) service instead: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-48214055

If a defendant is thougth to be at risk of absconding, or is charged with a very serious crime, he/she is remanded in custody in order to ensure their appearance on the date set for a hearing.  Why wasn't this man brought before the court and, assisted by two officers, made to face the right way?

Running a court is not cheap, and if the court has to pay 'home' visits, it adds significantly to the cost.  Members of the press were briefed afterwards, but isn't justice supposed to be seen to be done?

Re: Cell Service

I wonder how much the already overpaid Judge was able to claim in expenses?

And if that was then his only 'job' for the day?

Aren't you a little premature @Shep41 ? Has he been found guilty yet in a court of law?

Your post shows a lynch mob mind. 

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Cell Service

Just crazy, and this from the Guardian.

The judge, plus lawyers, journalists, police officers and court staff, took taxis to Belmarsh, 15 miles away from Westminster magistrates court.

The court crest was brought in a carrier bag.
