Speaking from the dock, and on the advice of his solicitor, Mr Stainer elected for trial in the Crown Court, despite the stated preference of the Bench to deal with the matter in the Magistrates Court. He was placed on unconditional bail with the standard warning as to his conduct while on bail. The case will be commencing on August 7th 2019 at Canterbury Crown Court.

The Crown Prosecution were also put on notice that by August 5th, they must review the case with a view to taking over what has been, so far, a private prosecution.

    What happened today was chapter 1– delighted to see Stainer in the dock . As he always thinks that he is above the law! Let’s wait to see chapter 2 — he will be sentenced and be put behind bars. Skulduggery !!!

    Today in the Dock, tomorrow in the Clink and behind bars. Long may he reside there.

    Crown Prosecution guidelines attached should they become involved in this case.
