Law Courts

Posted by Picasa
Yes Winchester is historic and pretty, but the real world is here too - next door to the Great Hall are the Winchester Law Courts, containing both the Crown and County Courts. The Crown Court deals with more serious criminal cases. Here are some of the latest sentencing from Winchester Crown Court:

1 December - Double Murderer jailed for life
24 November - Minimum 17 years for murder

Only 2 of these crimes actually took place in the Winchester area (fortunately the 2 least serious ones..)


  1. Glad you clarified the location of the crimes since I was beginning to wonder! That law building is impressive!

  2. It looks quite awe-inspiring. Doesn't deter criminals from breaking the law though :)

    What will be different in your 2011?

    Many thanks for your patience, and for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

  3. Yes unfortunately the courts always have business.

    What will be different in 2011? Interesting question! Will have a think!

  4. I'm glad to hear that the least serious crimes happened near you!
