    Q522: Can I find out a result of a court case that I was not involved in?

    Yes, if the verdict was given in open court you can find out the result of a case in Magistrates and Crown courts. There may be time limits when the courts are able to pass this information on due to practical issues, i.e. if you make contact 6 months after a court date, it may not be practicable to look that far back for the result.

    The procedure may differ for high profile cases and there will be stricter restrictions on cases involving juveniles or cases involving sexual offences.

    If you wish to find out a court case result you will need to contact the relevant court directly.

    Please see the website in Related Information to find the relevant court contact details.
