Event description

Description

.

Guilty or not guilty? Should an offender be sent to prison? What community punishment best fits the crime? How many points should go on the license of a man convicted of careless driving? How can victims be protected from future abuse?

These are the issues that the general public know little about until they themselves are a victim or commit an offence when their lack of knowledge often makes them very nervous of going to court and the unknown consequences. This talk shall cover a magistrates view of court procedures, trials and sentencing to give your advisors a basic idea of what would happen at a magistrates’ court hearing.

We will also tell you about giving evidence from the witnesses point of view and how the Citizens Advice Witness Service helps witnesses and the court.
