More Stornoway Crime and Justice

Postby Telo » Fri Feb 03, 2012 1:39 pm

from The Herald;

Cut and dried case

OUR tales of justice in the more minor courts of Scotland remind Bill Lucas: "A tinker who made regular appearances at the Burgh Police Court in Stornoway was fined £3 by John (the Barber) Macleod, one of the police judges. Afterwards the clerk remonstrated that the same tinker had been fined £3 for a breach at the last sitting, and that this time it should at least have been a fiver.

"But John told him, 'You see every time he gets fined he comes down to the shop to sub the money from me and I knew I had only £3 in the till.'"
