Cases in Courts

Postby Jinxer » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:27 pm

When I was younger the Mags Court waiting room was always full of people charged with criminal offences like burglary, stealing cars or joyriding as it was called then, but mainly the people were charged with criminal offences. I had the occasion to visit the Mags Court a couple of times last year with a friend and on the board was lists of mainly TV licence and one floor was full of Council tax officials who seemed to have took over the floor with tables set up and a stream of people waiting to talk to them, I suppose because they were behind in payments. The electric and gas board wanting warrants to break into peoples homes were their on another occasion. The thing I think I'm getting at is I didn't see no criminal offences being tried (I don't class TVL as crime of the century).
With the big increases of crime we keep hearing about, do we actually get any of these criminals into Court these days or is it just a culture now a days to persecute the poor.

In any magistrates court you will find several courts sitting. One may have all the cases you suggest. Another will have the traffic offences, and another will have the 'proper' criminal offences.

If a court has only one court sitting, such different lists may be allocated to different days. It is largely to do with managing the prosecutor's time,and making the best use of a stipe's time.
