Figures on the number of defendants prosecuted at magistrates’ courts and the outcomes of those prosecutions at all courts under section 121 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 can be found in the ‘Outcomes by Offence data tool’

Search ‘Offence’ for ‘36.1 Forced marriage’ from the offence drop down list.

It is important to remember that these figures are on a principle offence basis. When a defendant has been prosecuted for two or more offences, the principal offence is the offence for which the heaviest penalty would be imposed.
