Freebase

  1. Admonition

    Admonition is a punishment under Scots law when an offender has been found guilty but is neither imprisoned nor fined but receives verbal discipline and is afterwards set free; the conviction is still recorded. This can be compared to an absolute discharge where a conviction is not recorded. It is usually the result of either the strict application of law where no real wrong has been caused or where other circumstances make further punishment unjust in the circumstances specific to the case involved.
