Louise Casey, the former government’s anti-social behaviour tsar, said: ‘In a time of spending cuts, we need to abandon some of the genteel traditions and niceties of the legal system. ’ [Daily Telegraph 3rd November 2010] Once a ‘not guilty’ plea is made it then requires a trial. Generally trials in the magistrates’ courts last a half-day or a whole day, some may take two or three days.

So if they are fined £90 they get a discount of a third which means they have a fine to pay of £60. Even if they change their plea on the day of a trial they will still get a discount. The amount of discount is reduced because they may have incurred the costs of witnesses coming to court, even though they will not have had to give their evidence.
