Defence system in London
From a legal point of view, when a person is charged for certain types of crime, the local police authorities have the right to arrest the individual. In most of the situations, the person being held at the police station will be arrested for 24 hours, but, according to the case, the detention period may last longer. When charged, the individual will receive a hearing date at the Magistrates Court.
After being charged, the Magistrates Court will set a bail for the release. Furthermore, the Court will ask the person if he/she pleads guilty or not guilty. If he/she pleads not guilty, the Court will establish a trial; less serious criminal accusations are dealt with in the Magistrates Courts and the most serious cases will be handled in the Crown Court.
The next step is the trial itself and, if the person is not found guilty, the charges drawn on him/her will be dropped. If the Court decides the person is guilty, he/she will receive a sentence which will be enforced by the local authorities. Regardless of the result given by the Court, the defendant will have the right to appeal the case.
