You Don’t Have To Be Hopelessly Naïve To Be A Judge…

…but it clearly helps:
Former drug addict Billy Parry, 35, was caught red-handed by police while inside a house in Pegasus Road, Blackbird Leys, shortly before Christmas last year.

Judge King adjourned sentencing until September 23 and reserved the case to himself.

He said: “Looking at your abysmal record, I have some reservations, and I don’t know if you will fulfil your obligations. ”
Oh go on – hazard a guess, at least!
