What follows in this chapter is an account of some of the findings from the court study. As the base consisted of 9,689 cases brought by 21 agencies across three courts the extent of possible detail in presentation here is considerable. Where data was generated but did not appear to have any possible significance for legal or social policy or managerial issues concerning agencies or the courts, it has been omitted from coverage here. Throughout the chapter reference is made to the five tables (P1to P5) containing information about the research findings using the prosecuting agency as the variable. These tables are located in Appendix 2.
