Legal advice: Can you forget about an offence after six months?

Published: 19 August 2009

It's a commonly held belief that there is a six-month limit on summons, and if one arrives 26 weeks after the offence, you can ignore it.

Unfortunately the applicable six-month rule for a summons to be issued is within six months of the information being laid before the court, rather than within six months of the date of the offence.
