General Principles

There are two different types of stays. A stay can be entered by the Crown under s. 579. This type of stay is discretionary and can be reversed at the discretion of the Crown. The second type of stay is one that is ordered by the judge either on application of the accused or in limited circumstances at the judge's own initiative.
