Grantham district and county councillor Ray Wootten was in court this week – but not in the dock!
The councillor, in his role as chairman of Lincolnshire County Council, was invited to sit in on a session at Lincoln Crown Court on Monday presided over by Judge Sean Morris. Coun Wootten, who sat in on five cases involving drugs, burglary and theft, said: “Having given evidence at crown court whilst serving in the police, it was fascinating to see the viewpoint of the judge and how he handled each case.
“I found the experience gave me a great insight into how the courts work.”
