if found guilty surely all should be published, it is not a roll of honour and it may influence some not to commit crimes if they are sure they will be published, justice has to be seen to be done, especially after the trial it is almost impossible to find out if anybody has been prosecuted for a crime or who. When people are convicted of say drink driving, how are we to know if they are banned ? more transparency is needed

I totally agree I know someone who has been prosecuted for drink driving but is telling everyone it wasn't that it was for a mix up with his license that was why he was banned. We think he is banned for longer than he has said too, well if you've lid once why not again. Finding out otherwise is very hard and those who lie about it can continue with an apparently clean character as no one knows all the facts to argue.
