In an exclusive feature to mikeoncrime, Manitoba Judge Ray Wyant has agreed to answer reader questions on a regular basis.
Whether it’s a query on the law, the legal process, trials, sentencings, victims' rights or anything else, the province’s former Chief Judge is ready and willing to take on all comers.
Please send your Ask The Judge questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Judge Wyant’s answers will be posted periodically on this site.
Just a caution – Judge Wyant is not able to answer queries about specific court cases, so hold off on the "what was Judge so-and-so thinking when he gave that guy a conditional sentence??!!" questions.
However, questions about policies, procedures, trends and other crime and justice issues are more than welcome.
