star this property answer text <p /> <p>The courts are provided with guidance on sentencing and other ways of dealing with offenders, such as fine enforcement, by sentencing guidelines. These are issued by the Sentencing Council, which is independent of Government. The enforcement of fines imposed for the offence of TV licence evasion, which is non-imprisonable, is dealt with by the magistrates’ courts. The Magistrates’ Court Sentencing Guidelines can be found at the link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/MCSG_web_-_October_2014.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/MCSG_web_-_October_2014.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Pages 156 to 159 of the guidelines provide guidance to the courts on the enforcement of fines. This applies to all fines enforced by the magistrates’ courts: there is no specific guidance on dealing with offenders who have failed to pay a fine imposed for the offence of TV licence evasion.</p><p> </p><p>The courts are required by law to follow any relevant sentencing guidelines unless it would be contrary to the interests of justice to do so.</p>
