    Tierd of getting the full sentence when found guilty at court of being a scallywag well look no further. Plead guilty and stop wasting everyones time.

    Want to do the crime but cant do the time ? here is the deal for you.

    A defendant can get a reduction in his sentence based upon the stage in the proceedings at which he pleads guilty. The reduction is on a sliding scale from a one third and in some cases even more.

    Courts in England and Wales are required to "have regard" to the guidelines, although the final decision on sentencing in individual cases remains with judges and magistrates.

    The Sentencing Guidelines Councilwill say rewarding a guilty plea with a discount saves time and money that would otherwise be spent on a contested trial. A reduction also encourages the offender to admit what he or she has done, generally avoiding the need for victims and witnesses to give evidence

    Discounts have always been given for a timely plea of guilty, and the new arrangements should give judges and defendants a clearer idea of how long is appropriate

    UK's Oldest Law?

    Distress Act 1267 (c.4)


    1267 (52 Hen. 3) C A P. IV.


    In the Year of Grace, One thousand two hundred sixty seven, the two and fiftieth Year of the Reign of King HENRY, Son of King JOHN, in the Utas of St. Martin, the said King our Lord providing for the better Estate of his Realm of England, and for the more speedy Ministration of Justice, as belongeth to the Office of a King, the more discreet Men of the Realm being called together, as well of the higher as of the lower Estate: It was provided, agreed, and ordained, that whereas the Realm of England of late had been disquieted with manifold Troubles and Dissensions; for Reformation whereof Statutes and Laws be right necessary, whereby the Peace and Tranquillity of the People[1] must be observed:Wherein the King, intending to devise convenient Remedy, hath made these Acts, Ordinances, and Statutes underwritten, which he willeth to be observed for ever firmly and inviolably of all his Subjects, as well high as low."


    A Distress shall not be driven out of the County. And it shall be reasonable.


    None from henceforth shall cause any Distress that he hath taken, to be driven out of theCounty where it was taken;

    (2) and if one Neighbour do so to another of his own Authority, and without Judgment, he shall make Fine (as above is said) as for a Thing done against the Peace:

    (3) Nevertheless, if the Lord presume so to do against his Tenant, he shall be grievously punished by Amerciament.

    (4) Moreover, Distresses shall be reasonable, and not too great.

    (5) And he that taketh great and unreasonable Distresses, shall be grievously amerced for the Excess of such Distresses.'

    Well said,
    I just don’t know why people are getting so upset. This will save lots of court time and or money and free up the courts for other matters ! Surely that’s a good deal.

    Why put witnesses through the distress of being forced to give evidence.

    But on the other hand the post was slightly tongue-in-cheek.

    But the Sun revolves around the earth ??? everyone knows this silly !!! thats why it (the sun) moves in the sky ...... stupid :thumbsup:

    Is that why people are getting upset ? cos it is an old deal :santa: well if 99.9 % of crim's knew then maybe the courts would be less busy.

    It was ment as a bit of fun and maybe no better deal than a virbo ring or fleshlight so please jump off the high horse (not aimed at csiman). In the real world the courts would not offer this deal if it did not help "normal" people as well but none the less.
    Chill-pills please.
