Although the ‘fines’ disposal type category presented in the Proven Reoffending Statistics publications does include fines given using both the Single Justice Procedure and in open court, it is not possible to differentiate between the two based on the data we have.

As a result we cannot provide any information with regards to the proportions of offenders corresponding to categories (a) and (b) or their associated proven reoffending rates.
