A person of considerable responsibility in 'pragmatic' justice enforcement. Sadly, Magistrates are often wallowing in their own apparent wisdom and are actually not efficient in sentencing. They often present as stuffy old snobs whom insist on wearing cheap 'off-the-peg' reading glasses on the tips of their noses for the sole purpose of appearing to be intelectual. Sadists and hypocrites.
"Mr. Bloggs. It is within the power entrusted in this Magistrate's court to commit you to a period of six months in custody as a consequence of your actions. You are today convicted of snoring too loudly and disturbing the peace. If you had happened to be a drug-abuser, we would have spent thousands of pounds in tax-payer's money for you to have a nice spell at a private rehabilitation clinic."
