What is a fine?

When a person is found guilty of a criminal offence, the court may issue a fine as part (or all) of the penalty issued. This is an amount of money that the offender must pay. A Magistrates’ Court can issue a penalty of up to £5,000. The Crown Court can issue a fine for any amount; there is no maximum limit.
