R (on the application of LOUIS) v EALING MAGISTRATES' COURT (2009)

PUBLISHED February 20, 2009

[2009] EWHC 521 (Admin)

A magistrates' court erred in finding that the failure of an individual to make staged payments of a fine amounted to wilful neglect so that it was appropriate to activate a default sentence made in respect of the fine.
