Frequently Asked Questions and Glossary of Terms

1. I didn't know about the court hearing date, what can I do? You can contact the Magistrates Court and ask for the case to be re-opened.

2. Why are the outcomes different for the same offence? At each hearing, the Magistrates take into consideration: the facts of the case, the attitude of the offender, any mitigation offered by the offender and their ability to pay any financial punishment.

Glossary of  Terms
'Penalty' The penalty is what offender has to pay. It comprises the sum of the fine for the offence committed; a contribution to the Environment Agency costs; the Criminal Court Charge and a victim surcharge. The fine and victim surcharge is decided by the Magistrates hearing the case on the day. Fines go to the treasury. Costs go to the Environment Agency and contribute to the cost incurred in taking the case to court. Victim Surcharge goes to a specific fund for victims of crime. See:

'proof in absence' The defendant did not enter a plea at the time their case was heard. The Court convicted the person in their absence.

'Abs. Disch.' The defendant is guilty but no fine is imposed

'conditional discharge' The defendant is guilty but no fine is imposed. There are conditions attached to the discharge: if re-offending occurs within the period of the discharge, the defendant can be sentenced for the original offence and the new one.

'forfeiture order' Equipment used in the offence is taken from the defendant and destroyed.

'disqualification order' The defendant is disqualified for a period of time, from holding or obtaining a fishing licence. You can't fish during the period of disqualification.
