No Offence committed but charged with breach of bail.

Comment 1st August 2010

I'm sure I'm not the only person in this country to help Police with their enquiries and be placed on bail only to have no further action taken,but still taken to court and prosecuted for breach of that bail.Where there is no charge made against a person,surely they shouldn't be prosecuted for an offence that wouldn't exist if it wasn't for that,now,non-existant charge.In cases where enquiries result in a person having no action taken against them,then that should be the end of it,charging them for breach of bail afterwards seems petty.It should be no charge,no bail offence.

Why does this matter?

Apart from freeing up court time and associated costs,it would stop the possibility of a person receiving a criminal record when no actual crime had taken place.The only positive reason for pursuing the bail charge is as a means to raise funds for the courts.
