Weymouth Law

I confess to being a little confused by British law.

In the Magistrate’s Court at Weymouth recently several people found guilty of assault by beating, theft, or criminal damage were punished by being given conditional discharges, community orders, and some had to pay expenses.

At the same court Magistrates found a large group of offenders guilty and fined them on average £400 with £90 costs… Their heinous crime – not having a TV license!

So if you want to be a criminal in Weymouth then be a thief, mugger, drug addict, etc, etc as they’re regarded as minor crimes… but whatever you do, don’t sink to the lowest levels of villainy and watch TV without a licence 🙂
