In S v Makolane 2006 (1) SACR 589 (T) the accused was charged with the theft of two bags of cement. As a means of securing his attendance at court he was issued with a notice in terms of s 157A (1) of the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977 which gave him the opportunity to admit his guilt and pay a fine in the sum of R300. The accused was prepared to admit guilt and duly paid the R300 stipulated fine. This was subsequently confirmed by a magistrate.
