    So, will they send Will to the state pen for that, or will he get a fine?

    Because I remember that guy Jeffrey Archer went to prison, and he used his time inside to write a whole book and get famous. Kind of like Hitler. UK prisons don't seem to have any 'hard time' do they?

    Chain gangs?

    Archer was a terrible but hugely successful novelist well before his sentence.

    I am sure that is a great relief for all involved. Hopefully Aero can continue to grow from here. Although the transition would have been very difficult, I think the new designs since Ken un-retired have really freshened the line-up.
    There is something for everyone now.

    There are 3 levels of Courts in Scotland. The District Court deals with small fines, speeding tickets, that kind of stuff. Up from that you have the Sherrif Court, more serious cases, assault, major theft that kind of thing. At the top you have the High Court, murders and really complex cases. Sherrifs don't get Deputies but they do get Sherrifs Officers who serve Warrants.

    You also have Sharia Law courts. I didn't know until I saw it in the press that a guy in Scotland was caught speeding by the police and fined - and he took it to a Sharia Law court and explained that he had 4 wives and it was necessary to speed in order to see them all. He got off.
