John Terry played in a game of football on 23 October 2011. As a result of an incident he has been accused of "a racially aggravated public order offence".
After a hearing in the Magistrates Court to-day, February 1, 2012, the hearing of the case was scheduled to take place on July 9, 2012 !!! The maximum penalty, if John Terry is found guilty is a fine of 2500 pounds sterling !!!
If "death" could be the maximum penalty, I would understand that Kier Starmer, the Head of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) would want to give time to everyone involved in the case !!! In the circumstances swift justice for a small offense does not appear to be the habit of the CPS. This is ridiculous !!!
