Chapter 3, updates


There are two main offences that you could be charged with if you are on bail and if you do not attend at court when you should. You can see them in section 6 of the Bail Act 1976. There are two possible offences: if you fail to attend at court “without reasonable cause” or, if you do have a good reason for failing to attend at court, if you fail to surrender at court “as soon after the appointed time as is reasonably practicable”.
