Ministry of Justice scraps 'conviction by computer' law

Still "be able to" attend court?

Surely most people would want to just let the computer system do it rather than going to court if they are going to plead guilty anyway. But why could it not be optional? Allow people to decide to plead guilty and let the computer sentence them, or they can go to court and let a judge sentence them and get the same outcome? I bet the vast majority of people would take the automatic system, and avoid the hassle and time off work, etc.
