More target setting insanity

I'm a magistrate. The CPS is increasingly trying to steer us towards imposing lower sentences. On Monday, in a case where we were thinking of sending a man to jail for serious theft, the CPS lawyer actually stood up and "reminded" us that the sentence guidelines suggested he should be given a community penalty. It sounded more like a defence plea! This government is edging ever closer to removing all discretion in the criminal law. Outrageous!
