What happens if you plead guilty at the magistrates’ court?
In simple terms, a guilty plea means that you accept that you committed the offence you’re facing a charge for. As a result of pleading guilty, you will be convicted for the offence in question.
If you know you want to plead guilty, it’s best to do this as soon as possible to help reduce your sentence. However, you must talk to a solicitor before taking a guilty plea to understand what you’re pleading guilty to and whether any potential defences are available. For example, you may argue the defence of your property if someone throws a brick through your window first.
