Notes

Magistrates' courts are a key part of the criminal justice system and 97% of cases are completed there. In addition magistrates' courts deal with many civil cases e.g. anti-social behaviour, public health and are responsible for the enforcement of fines and community punishments. Where cases required a penalty greater than magistrates’ sentencing powers, cases will be sent to the Crown Court
