    If your convicted of a serious crime and found guilty by a jury. Is it true that your sentence doesn’t start until you acknowledge what you have done and admit your guilt to the authorities/ legal team.

    No. No one ever has to say they are guilty for their sentence to start. Your sentence begins once you are sentenced.

    Yes, although it may include time spent while held on remand before sentencing.

    So the sentence time served starts from when the defendent is first remanded in custody, not the date of sentencing. It may also include time spent on bail depending on the bail conditions (e.g. if it includes a curfew).

    Thank you, although I am a Law student and I typically find a straight to the point answer that simply answers the question at hand works best!

    Well IANAL

    Also note my important edit above. Time spent on remand may not actually count...
