    Yes, but there must be some evidence against you seeing as you got to court in the first place.

    yes a decription of a irish man with curly black hair, I have never been to ireland in my life and my hair is brown and straight, so surely if you were in the wrong place at the wrong times and being accused of a crime you wouldn't even dream of doing you'd be worried about your solicitor going to a bad university??

    He wouldn't even be your solicitor if he couldn't do the job. Why don't you have a bit more faith? Besides, if you didn't do it, and have never even been to ireland, then it should be easy for him to get you off then shouldn't it?

    Personally, I think you should tell him that he went to a 'bad' university.

    You shouldn't judge him just because he went to Nottingham Trent. You don't even know of the life experience he has.

    Are you just going to Magistrates Court? He probably won't have to say much other than a few lines (if you're the defendant) because the prosecutor usually summarises the case. Don't worry, if he's in court, he's reputable and trustworthy or he'd still be doing admin work.

    If there is a guilty plea...

    If there is a not guilty plea then they will have to sort of argue, call witnesses, cross examine etc. to determine who is right.

    True, but if they need to call witnesses aren't they more likely to refer it to the crown? (my court knowledge is a bit rusty)

    I don't think so. I've seen witnesses called in the magistrates court. I think it's referred to the crown court depending on the offence.

    Assuming everything spoken on here is truth, here is the more streamlined proceedings that would take place if I was Ultimate Ruler of Earth:

    Judge: Do you have evidence that he was in the vicinity at the time of the crime?

    Prosecuting: No.

    Judge: Do you have evidence that he was in the same city at the day of the crime?

    Prosecuting: No.

    Judge: Do you have evidence that he was in the same country in the last 20 years up to and including the day of the crime?

    Prosecuting: No.

    Judge: Do you have DNA evidence?

    Prosecuting: No.

    Judge: We shall reconvene in 15 minutes for the sentencing of the prosecuting to death.
