Subjects marked for court

The type of court proceedings appropriate for a case depends on the nature of the crimes or offences involved. The most serious crimes are marked for solemn proceedings, whilst less serious crimes and offences will be marked for Sheriff Summary or JP courts.

  • Solemn court (High Court or Sheriff & Jury) has been higher than 19-20 average levels since the middle of April
  • Sheriff Summmary court has remained around 19-20 levels
  • JP Court had been returning to 19-20 levels but has fallen again throughout July and early August and remains below 19-20 levels.
