Script for the above Video

I am going to talk to you about adjudications. I am a solicitor at Duncan Lewis and I have been representing clients at adjudications.


An adjudication, goes in front of a District judge is commonly known as a nicking. This is one of the few things in prison law which are still covered by Legal Aid.


This is when a prisoner has done something which a prison officer deems to be against the rules. It can be as trivial as not obeying an order, or as serious as in sighting a prison riot. Regardless of what it is the prisoner is said to have done, we can help.


At Duncan Lewis, we pride ourselves on achieving the best possible result for our clients and being up to date with the law. There are many ways in which an adjudication can be dismissed and they revolve around the rules that govern the procedure if an adjudication. For instance, if the Reporting officer did not put the charge to the accused within a set time period then this will usually lead to the charge against the prisoner being dismissed. There are other ways in which a charge can be dismissed technically and if you would like further information or specific advice please get in touch and I would be happy to help.
