Anyone from the CPS out there?

September 18, 2006
If you are, perhaps you can explain something to me?

Read this story about a car thief who stole a car, then killed a grandmother after driving dangerously.

He was sentenced to life, which, due to the wonders of modern justice, means he is eligible to apply for parole in just over four years.

He was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving, aggravated vehicle taking and the heinous crimes of driving without a licence or insurance.

In the report, we are told that our poor misunderstood villain stole the car by threatening the owner with a screwdriver.

Now – as you may know, to get promoted to Inspector requires the passing of a law exam. One of the subjects that is tested is the Theft Act 1968. Now I assume that the CPS solicitors study law exams as well and I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect that they have a quick look at this piece of legislation.

So could one of you explain to me why the CPS for this area have all missed the chapter that covers Section 8 of the Act? The reason I ask is that I can’t for the life of me see why the hell this low-life wasn’t charged with robbery?
