Pleading Guilty

When charged with an offence; one may opt to plead guilty and explain to the court what the circumstances were at the time the offence was committed. One of the advantages of pleading guilty at an earlier stage of the proceeding is that a judge or a magistrate may dismiss the matter by way of s10(1)(a) or alternatively give a lesser sentence.
