Hello, welcome to the website. My name isXXXXX can assist you with this.
If this happens, then the magistrate must recuse himself, and advise that he cannot deal with the case at all. This is a clear conflict of interest and apparent bias - it would result in the appeal court overturning anything that happened on the case.

No, your answer was entirely adequate. I have to appear in a magistrates court on 14/03, and I believe the Chairman of the Bench will be one of my clients.
