Crown Court Judge on second drunken-driving charge

A judge who was already on bail after being charged with drink-driving has been arrested for a similar offence.

Judge Bruce Macmillan, 63, was arrested in his home city of Liverpool, on Thursday for allegedly being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle.

He was already due to appear before magistrates on Septmber 30 charged with drink-driving

If Judge Macmillan is found guilty of these offences it would be interesting if someone went back through the history of his judgements to see if his sentencing policy was unduly lenient towards convicted drivers. But of course no one ever will. Such considerations are outside the frame of civilized discourse.
