Scales Of Justice Update
I pled (plead?) guilty, received a $250 fine, $55 court costs and a spent conviction for my trouble.
Lesson learned: Cops can do whatever they want whenever they want.
Cost of lesson: $405.
Key Quote by Magistrate: “I don’t need to see the character references, the nature of the offense is such that they aren’t necessary”.
In other words, what a fucking waste of time.
Next post will feature some of the other interesting cases from my day in Perth Magistrate’s Court.
