It means 'Newton Hearing".
當被告認罪但爭議案情時, 法庭可考慮展開紐頓聆訊, 由控辯雙方提出證據證明案發時的事實.
A Newton hearing or inquiry is a comparatively modern legal procedure used where the two sides offer such conflicting evidence that a judge sitting alone (that is, without a jury) tries to ascertain which party is telling the truth. . They are generally used when a defendant pleads guilty to an offence (as in R v Newton itself), but there are factual issues (relating, for example, to the appropriate sentence) that need to be resolved between the prosecution and defence.Source(s): 自己 + wikipedia
