If you have been accused of a crime you will be known as a defendant, which means you have the opportunity to defend yourself against the charges made against you. This can be a confusing experience, and this website will show you what you can expect to happen.
The tour aims to guide you through the processes within the criminal justice system of England and Wales, from the time you are charged (including the police investigation), to you making a plea at a magistrates court, going to trial and being sentenced if you admit or are found guilty of the offence. All the agencies of the criminal justice system are committed to providing a fair and effective service to all communities, with no discrimination.
