"A solicitor has just successfully argued for a custodial sentence because due to his client currently being on remand, if he were to get a CO/SSO then he would not be eligible to the £46. Magistrates decided to sentence to 28 days custody saying the case was 'very interesting'. This is ridiculous - had he been given the CO/SSO he'd have still got exactly the same support as he will upon release - only thing missing would've been the £46 - oh and we would not have had to pay for his incarceration."It would be enormously helpful if any person knowing the details of the case could contact me in confidence please. The second request is in relation to a young person interested in probation, as follows:-
"I am 18 years old, and I am currently a careers coach for Future Frontiers.The timings could prove problematic, but it just might prove possible for some enthusiastic colleague and I can put you in touch. In both cases, my contact details can be found on the profile page. Thanks.
Future Frontiers is an organisation that employs students to work with young disadvantaged children in secondary schools as careers coaches. The aim of Future Frontiers is to equip disadvantaged young people with the information, skills and mindsets to be able to realise their career aspirations and maintain the motivation to achieve their full potential. I was lucky enough to be paired with an amazing young girl in a school called Xxxx Xxxxxx in Xxxxxxxxxxx, London. After working with her over the past 4 weeks, she has decided to pursue a career in Probation and Law.
I have been looking for a professional probation officer or counsellor that has plenty of knowledge and love for their job, to speak to her. I was wondering if you would mind being involved in a brief interview with her over Skype? She would just like to ask you a few questions about the profession. The Skype interview should last only about 15-20 mins on the 27th April 15:05-15:45, or if that day is not possible, 11th May between 15:05-15:45."
