I will be in the...
I will be in the magistrates court for the seventh time today. The previous six were adjoined by the court for various reasons, none of my making. The offences alleged are speeding at the beginning of 2015 and failing to respond to various letters that I have never received. The fines now amount to more than �700. Do I have the right to demand a trial by jury. I am not guilty of any of the offences.

Not for speeding.

Speeding is summary only and so can only be tried by Magistrates Im afraid.

There is no way around it.

That has been the law for many years now.
