At The Crown Court
You will appear in the Crown Court if the charge that you face is a charge that can only be dealt with in the Crown Court. Additionally, you may appear in the Crown Court if the magistrates decide that they cannot deal with your case or because you have been advised to be tried by a jury.
Again, where appropriate, an application will be made for legal aid on your behalf. In the Crown Court, your case will be prepared by our Crown Court team and presented either by a Barrister instructed to represent you or by a Solicitor Advocate from Foster Wells.
