Notice Of Intended Prosecution
 
A notice of intended prosecution is a legal reminder that is most commonly distributed in Great Britain. The purpose of a notice of intended prosecution is to inform the potential accused party or defendant that they may be prosecuted for the offense in question. When an individual receives a notice of intended prosecution it does not automatically necessitate a court appearance or a legal maneuver, it is merely a warning that the convicted party may face prosecution. 
 
 
A notice of intended prosecution is typically served to violators of traffic laws. The notice of intended prosecution must be served to the convicted individual or the registered keeper of the automobile within 14 days of the offense. If the notice is delivered beyond this time frame, the offense cannot be further prosecuted in a court system. 
 
 
If the details of the accused individual are not known the notice is sent to the register of the vehicle. In either format, if the notice of intended prosecution is delivered within the allotted 14 day time frame the motion is active and the individual is fairly warned of an impending legal battle. In addition to a delivery, a notice of intended prosecution may be issued verbally to the driver or owner of the vehicle. The rules and regulations associated with the notice of intended prosecution are fairly complex, however, they are fully elucidated on a number of local government sites.
