details are updated daily.



may remain or lie on file
where a defendant does not admit an individual

offence (count) that is set out in an indictment (which lists the charges

against the defendant in the Crown Court) and the judge agrees that there is

sufficient evidence, but it is not in the public interest to proceed with a

trial on that particular Count as the defendant has admitted other offences or been convicted on some counts with others remaining undetermined. The Count may therefore be allowed to lie on (the

defendants court) file. This will usually be said to be \'ordered to lie on the

file on the usual terms\'. The \'usual terms\' allows the offence to be reinstated

at a future date with leave of the trial judge or Court of Appeal. The

prosecution can therefore, make an application to the court if further evidence

is available and they believe it to be in the public interest to bring the case

to court.

How often are the sentencing details on this site updated, and excuse my ignorance (I am not in the legal profession) but what does Count 1 to remain on file mean?
