What is ADMONITION? Definition of ADMONITION in Black's Law Dictionary

A reprimand from a judge to a person accused, on being discharged, warning him of the consequences of his conduct, and intimating to him that, should he be guilty of the same fault for which he has been admonished, he will be punished with greater severity. Merlin, Repert. The admonition was authorized as a species of punishment for slight misdemeanors. In eccle- siastical law, this is the lightest form of punish- ment.

Any authoritative oral communication or state- ment by way of advice or caution by the court to the jury respecting their duty or conduct as jurors; the admissibility or nonadmissibility of evidence, or the purpose for which any evidence admitted may be considered by them. Miller v. Noell, 193 Ky. 659, 237 S.W. 373, 374.
