Arsonist, domestic abusers and others convicted in Cornwall courts

Hardly a week goes by without a bunch of selfish drunken drivers having their licenses taken away by Cornwall magistrates. And as usual, magistrates have also been busy convicting people for a whole host of other crimes.

In Bodmin and Truro, the courts deal with all criminal matters in Cornwall. Anyone accused of an offence, from the most minor to the most serious, appears first before the magistrates. All offenses are brought before the magistrates, even if the most serious are referred to the court of the king.

If a defendant pleads guilty, they could be sentenced immediately or have the case remanded for a pre-sentence report. If they deny the allegations against them, the case will be adjourned for trial.

The courts are open to all and our journalists attend like any other member of the public. Since most people have jobs and cannot spend their time in court, the media has always acted as the eyes and ears of the public to ensure justice is served.
