  • Discharged on recognizances?

    Ladies/Gents,

    Can anyone tell me in layman's terms what this phrase means?

    I'm curious to know as it's used during this case....

    Surely he wouldn't have just been allowed to go home, would he?

    Yep.
    Released without bail.

      Check out The Mikado by Gilbert & Sullivan, and Koko's song in Act 1:

      Taken from the county jail,
      By a set of curious chances.
      Liberated then on bail,
      On my own recognizances.

      I.e, he had to be responsible for his own behaviour whilst on bail.

      Tra la!

        Thanks chaps, so he must have just been allowed to return to his Regiment in India

          It doesn’t say on his own recognizance. So others may have been required to put up some $$$. Not sure he’d have been able to go back to his regiment either having been found guilty and of unsound mind.

          Not sure what they’d call it today where you are but here it’d be a Good behaviour Bond.

          There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.

            That's what I thought, but following the case he returns back to India and doesn't get discharged from the army for another 3 years.

                If they said he was temporarily insane perhaps he just had to see a doctor before he was deemed fit to return to india.
