Overview

Magistrates' Courts Criminal Practice 2004 is devoted exclusively to practice and procedure in the British magistrates' court and provides, in one volume, unique procedural guides together with annotated statutes covering the entire range of criminal procedure. A full CD-ROM version is included with the book so the reader can have Magistrates' Courts Criminal Practice on a PC at the office, in a briefcase or on a laptop at court. The book is designed to combine authority with utility, providing step-by-step advice on a vast array of court procedures together with an up-to-date source of statutes, SI's and practice directions. Unlike other comparable books, where this statutory material is often buried in commentary, all the statutes are presented alphabetically, so finding what one needs is quick and easy. Part I divides the procedure of the court, ranging from commencement of proceedings to sentencing and enforcement, and explains the law and practice for each through text and dozens of procedural guides. Relevant forms are also included. In Parts II and III all relevant statutes and statutory instruments are reproduced, in amended form, and annotated by the expert team of editors. Parts IV and V contain guidance practice directions and codes of practice. Produced to the high standards associated with all of Jordan Publishing's court reference works, Magistrates' Courts Criminal Practice is published annually in order to keep practitioners abreast of all developments. New material in the 2004 edition includes: new procedural guides governing the administration of cautions, reprimands and final warnings; full incorporation of the Magistrates' Courts (Miscellaneous Amendments) Rules 2003; substantial updating of case-law under the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 to provide comprehensive commentary on all recent developments; revised section dealing with enforcement powers; new guide in respect of anti-social behavior orders (as ancillary orders made on conviction); detailed examination of referral orders; text of the Revised Edition of Codes of Practice A-E made under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (effective April 2003); and prospective coverage of evidential reforms contained in the current Criminal Justice Bill.
