BHA Judiciary Outcomes
For some years BHA Judiciary Committee Hearing outcomes have been published on the BHA Website. It is thought that by doing so, players, officials and supporters can gain a better understanding of the consequences of unacceptable behaviour. Players' and officials' names and the names of the Clubs involved in each Hearing have been removed. The selection of outcomes listed here span several years. Click on a heading to read more . . .
These outcomes should also be read in conjuntion with the BHA By-laws, Part F - Judiciary Committee Rules (see links below).
Often the Judiciary Panel will impose a sentence that concists of a number of weeks suspension and/or a number of weeks suspension 'suspended'. What this means for the Defendant is that any weeks of his suspension that have in turn been 'suspended' are held over as a form of 'good behaviour bond'. The Panel will specify a period for the 'suspended' part of any suspension.
Should the Defendant be called before the Judiciary Panel on a similar charge during the period specified, and is found guilty of the new charge, then the weeks held in suspension will automatically be imposed on the Defendant. The Defendant will then be liable for any additional supension imposed by the new Panel as a result of the guilty verdict.
