    Generally, the Court will have to be satisfied that:
    1. The crime committed is trivial;
    2. You are a person of good character;
    3. There were extenuating circumstances surrounding the crime;
    4. A conviction will have a disproportionately negative effect on the rest of your life


    A trivial crime? Oxymoron?

    There are loads of trivial crimes when you include context. Doesn't mean everyone should be let off, also doesn't mean everyone should get a conviction which may harm their life out of proportion to the offence. And that threshold will be different depending on individual circumstances.

    Trespass is not a crime (it's a civil offence) but it becomes Criminal Trespass if any damage is done.

    A local rugby club found Travellers had set up on their ground and called the police, who blocked access, but could do no more. Fortunately one of the Travellers decided to try and climb out, and in doing so broke part of a fence. Apparently both sides knew this was how the game was played: the Travellers agreed to move on, and the police decided not to prosecute.

    Not the most serious crime ever, but sufficient for purpose.

    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Yeppers, I think you are correct. That is what a judge does. However for semantics sake, no crime is trivial or unimportant. Except for not straight at the scrum. I mean, really, it is just a scrum. Everyone knows whats up. Just feed the pill and get it over with. Let's play some real rugby. Let the backs knock it on again. the oppo will just feed it, and their backs will knock on.

    Sorry to rant. F' in backs and their good lookin hair, thin waists, and nice mustaches.

    Perhaps Robbie deleted it, it wasn’t our finest hour.
