Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 60 minutes

A guilty plea or verdict is not the end of an offender’s opportunity to secure an acquittal. Under the Sentencing Act 2002, it is possible for the court to acquit an offender upon sentencing by imposing a discharge without conviction.

By outlining the relevant considerations at each step, this module will examine the test that must be satisfied before the court may exercise the discretion to discharge an offender without conviction. The current procedural approach to applications will be explained including practical discussion about effective applications and common difficulties.

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.

Learning objectives

You will:
  • Gain an understanding of the requirements in making an application for a discharge without conviction in the District Court.
  • Be better able to identify potential difficulties with these applications and apply this in your practice.
