Bind over

CQC Glossary of terms used in the guidance for providers and managers
Care Quality Commission

An adult accused of an offence may be bound over to appear at a court, or to be of good behaviour, or to keep the peace. If they refuse to accept a bind over, the person may be committed to prison. A bind over may be imposed with other penalties following conviction but is not a conviction and does not go onto a criminal record.
