Pay-as-you-go street justice.
Journal of Criminal Law, 74(1) pp. 1–3.
Full text available as:
Justice is not traduced by the 'instant-solution' of penalty notices for disorder solely in terms of guilty people getting a soft sanction; it is also traduced because it is likely that a proportion of innocent people caught in unfortunate circumstances are persuaded to accept a penalty notice or caution as a better risk than going to court and exposing themselves to a full hearing. There is a significant risk that suspects will feel pressured to accept a caution (and necessarily admit guilt) unaware that this will remain on their record.
