If she was a millionaire and ran over a pedestrian or something, her name wouldn't be in the papers. Double standard as usual.

When and who was that. I can’t place that.👍

And this is why no one should be named or identified until after finding of guilt. Not just sexual offences. Courts should be open, press must be there. They can report all they want of cases whe

Still a child ?. Read the case, not a stranger to crime, but a stranger to work or abiding by the law or rules.

There seem to be more and more cases when the fines are deducted from benefits.

Suppose it's better than the Govt money-laundering.... 

I recall a case recently where an otherwise unemployed drug dealer was given a (not insubstantial) fine, which was paid straightaway.   I wonder how he paid that?  Or if the Govt undertook a source of funds check!

Yes, I wasn't saying she's the first. This is a recurring problem with IOM Newspapers and other local media outlets. Printing young adults' names in the newspaper for petty or mild offences is over the top and damages their ability to transition to normal productive lives. A bit difficult to get a first job when your name's been splashed in the papers for stealing some tan lotion. Yes, crimes have consequences, but these are hardly hard crimes: the focus should be on getting these young people to become productive members of society rather than to punish them.

Mrs Hughes awarded costs to Mr R*****, and he asked the court to remove his name from the internet as he left the dock.”

So Manx Radio then names him

And this is why no one should be named or identified until after finding of guilt. Not just sexual offences.

Courts should be open, press must be there. They can report all they want of cases where there’s a finding of guilt. But it should be an offence, for anyone, press, media, private citizens, to print, publish, broadcast, disseminate on social media, the name of an unconvicted defendant.

Why have they not named the people who stole the TT scoreboard,

Something really wrong here.

Well intentioned or not stealing is stealing, ignorance is no defence in law.

If, and I stress if, someone removed it to prevent unlawful removal by others and always intended to hand it back, it would lack the intention to permanently deprive element that is an essential part of stealing, stole, theft, etc.

There's also seems to be a media blackout on the fact armed police had half of Sulby in lockdown for many hours yesterday!

If these people had no intentions of keeping the course map

surely they would have informed someone in Government or the Police of their intentions.

The health and safety breaches alone is enough to warrent an investigation.

Yet even after they have admitted taking the course map, they have not been named.

You take an object belonging to someone else without consent.

When Manx radio news item reports it missing, you return it.

Yet you are not named, even after you admitting taking said item.

Why would you not  be named,

Espeicially the authorities feel you have done nothing wrong.
