Sexual Violence Pilot Court: Guidelines and Designated Offences

The District Court is running a Sexual Violence Pilot Court in Auckland and Whangarei.

The pilot covers all serious (Category 3) sexual violence cases to be heard by a jury in those courts (read the media statement - 20 October 2016).

 Best Practice Guidelines have been developed for the pilot.

At its outset, the following offences were designated for the pilot.
 
However, this list is subject to ongoing review and offences may be added or removed from the list as the pilot progresses.
