Begging is covered by the Vagrancy act of 1824.Most of the act was repealed in the 1980's though begging is still an arrestable offence in certain circumstances.It is unusual for current day vagrants to be arrested for begging unless thay are also drunk and incapable.Sentancing for any vagrant arrested for begging is usually a small fine, or one days imprisonment if they are unable to pay the fine.As they have usually spent time in the cells after being arrested, this counts as the one day in prison so the defendant will usually be free to walk away from the court with their sentance served.
