The Poder Judicial said that the flagrancia court in Heredia has increased its hours of operation and is now working from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. In the past, the hours were from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
This is the court where persons caught in the act or nearly so get instant justice.
The first person to be brought before the court during the new hours was a 22 year old who was caught in Barrio Corazón de Jesús stealing a motorcycle Wednesday night, said the Poder Judicial. The location was near Universidad Nacional.
The man received an eight-month sentence with three years probation.
