Noordanus AdvocatuurTOM Hearing

TOM Hearing

If you receive a penalty order (strafbeschikking) from the Public Prosecution Service (OM), paying it means you agree with the offense for which the penalty order was issued. This results in a notation on your criminal record. If you disagree with the penalty order, you must file an objection within 14 days of its issuance. After filing an objection, your case will be brought before a judge.

Alternatively, you may be invited to a hearing with the Public Prosecutor. During this hearing, you are allowed to have a lawyer present. Before the hearing, you can thoroughly discuss the entire case file with your lawyer to ensure you are well-prepared. A hearing with the Public Prosecutor has the same implications for your criminal record as a court hearing.

Noordanus Advocatuur is available to assist you in both filing an objection and attending a hearing with the Public Prosecutor.
