Indictment

An indictment is a criminal accusation that a person has committed a crime. In jurisdictions that use the concept of felonies, the most serious criminal offence is a felony; the criminal law in India is derived from the colonial-era British system, does not use a jury system and is codified in the Criminal Procedure Code. Criminal offences are divided into two broad categories: cognisable offences and non-cognisable offences; the police are empowered to start investigating a cognisable offence. The complaint is considered an accusation. However, in both cognisable and non-cognisable offences, the trial starts only with the "Framing of Charges" similar to the concept of indictment; the trial court does not proceed with the trial if the evidence is insufficient to make out a charge. In England and Wales an indictment is issued by the public prosecutor on behalf of the Crown, the nominal plaintiff in all public prosecutions under English law; this is why a public prosecution of a person whose surname is Smith would be referred to in writing as "R v Smith" and when cited orally in court would be pronounced "the Crown against Smith".

All proceedings on indictment must be brought before the Crown Court. By virtue of practice directions issued under section 75 of the Senior Courts Act 1981, an indictment must be tried by a High Court judge, a circuit judge or a recorder; as to the form of an indictment, see the Indictments Act 1915 and the Indictment Rules 1971 made thereunder. The Indictment Rules 1971 were revoked by the Criminal Procedure Rules 2007 incorporated into the Criminal Procedure Rules 2010; the form and content and the service of an indictment are governed by Rule 14 of the CPR 2012. Additional guidance is contained in the Consolidated Criminal Practice Direction Part IV.34. As to the preferring of a bill of indictment and the signing of an indictment, see section 2 of the Administration of Justice Act 1933 and the Indictments Rules 1971 made thereunder, as amended and modified by the Indictments Rules 1983, the Indictments Rules 1988, the Indictments Rules 1992, the Indictments Rules 1997, the Indictments Rules 1998 and the Indictments Rules 2000.

See the Indictments Act 1945. In Scotland, all of these cases brought in the High Court of Justiciary are brought in the name of the Lord Advocate and will be tried on indictment. In a sheriff court where trials proceed using the solemn proceedings they will be tried on indictment and are brought in the name of the Lord Advocate. All solemn indictments are designed in the manner Her Majesty’s Advocate v Smith, or, more HMA v Smith; the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution states in part: "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia when in actual service in time of War or public danger". The requirement of an indictment has not been incorporated against the states. S. states do. In many—if not all—U. S. Jurisdictions that use grand juries, prosecutors have a choice between seeking an indictment from a grand jury and filing a charging document directly with the court.

Such a document is called an information, accusation, or complaint, to distinguish it from a grand-jury indictment. To protect the suspect's due-process rights in felony cases, there is a preliminary hearing, at which a judge determines whether there was probable cause to arrest the suspect, in custody. If the judge finds such probable cause, he or she holds over, the suspect for trial; the substance of an indictment or other charging instrument is the same, regardless of the jurisdiction: it consists of a short and plain statement of where and how the defendant committed the offense. Each offense is set out in a separate count. Indictments for complex crimes those involving conspiracy or numerous counts, may run to hundreds of pages. In other cases, however, an indictment for a crime as serious as murder, may consist of a single sheet of paper. Indictable offenses are tried by jury, unless the accused waives the right to a jury trial. Though the Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution mandates the right to a jury trial in any criminal prosecution, the vast majority of criminal cases in the US are resolved by the plea-bargaining process.

A direct indictment is one in which the case is sent directly to trial before a preliminary inquiry is completed or when the accused has been discharged by a preliminary inquiry. It is meant to be an extraordinary used power to ensure that those who should be brought to trial are in a timely manner or where an error of judgment is seen to have been made in the preliminary inquiry.

BBĂ– Class 12

The steam locomotive class BBÖ 12 was an express train tank locomotive class with the Federal Railway of Austria. Convinced by the performance of the kkStB-Class 112 the BBÖ decided in 1934 to procure tank engines for regional express services as well. For reasons of cost, they achieved this by converting 0-6-0 tank locomotives built in 1898 by Krauss/Linz). One unit was converted by the Lokomotivfabrik Floridsdorf in 1934 and another in 1937. Locomotives 97.153 and 97.152 were used for the conversion. The boiler and the valve gear were used unchanged. Oil-firing was provided, the tank for, installed on the rear section of the boiler barrel, enabled one-man operation; the engines were given a special livery with the water tanks and driver's cab being painted light green. The little locomotives proved themselves well, but no more were converted, because from 1935 the BBÖ DT 1 was available for short express trains. In 1938 the Deutsche Reichsbahn took the engines over as 69 001 and 69 002. Only the latter was still around after the Second World War.

It was used on a bridge inspection train. This engines is still preserved today. Deutsche Reichsbahn List of DRG railbuses Schröpfer, Heribert. Triebfahrzeuge österreichischer Eisenbahnen - Dampflokomotiven BBÖ und ÖBB. Düsseldorf: alba. ISBN 3-87094-110-3
