§ Mr. Sillars
asked the Lord Advocate, of the 22 persons under the age of 17 years arrested at the premier league football match in Paisley on Saturday 14th January, how many have been found guilty, how many found innocent or the charges not proven, how many are still awaiting trial, and in how many cases proceedings have been abandoned.
The Lord Advocate
Of the 22 persons arrested, 11 pled guilty and were dealt with by the sheriff. One pled guilty and was remitted by the sheriff to the children's panel for disposal. Five pled not guilty and are awaiting trial. The remaining five did not appear in court but were referred by the procurator fiscal to the reporter to the children's panel.
