Why Bother?

A convicted criminal, awaiting sentence, has had a curfew lifted by a Scottish court so that he can go on holiday.

He was awaiting sentence for a housebreaking, committed while on bail.

He was also awaiting sentence for assault, committed while on bail.

The original offence he was awaiting sentence for was assaulting the police.

Little wonder that the police are sometimes criticised for not bothering.

Presumably he lives with his mother who is his legal guardian [His under age still] therefore being with his parent out of the country is in security terms for the local populace a good 'No Cost' option to custody on remand, one hopes that on return he will be met and arrested to await trial.
With that number of offenses pending committed whilst on bail-it would seem he is one of those destined to be in trouble for the rest of his life.

I suppose it will keep him out of trouble, unless he decides to export his activities where his holiday destination is. I wonder if the police and authorities have been informed on the holiday isle.

The other question I would be asking, and that is-whose paying for the holiday, mum or the state?.
