Developing from The Medieval Baronal Court Systems, The Leet Court was designed to deal with smaller Petty crimes. Administered by a Baronal Steward, a common case often involved stray or unaccounted for animals and grazing “violations” among the Peasantry. The Leet Court also monitored those Peasants who did not perform their “Community Duties” (such as road repair, cutting trees etc.) Most often a monetary fine was imposed on violators. Version of The Leet Court still exist in some Countries today.
