In the Crown Court, trials are heard by a judge and jury, otherwise by a judge alone. All Crown Court cases start in the magistrates’ court. The Crown Court usually deals with more serious offences such as murder, rape, robbery and serious assaults. These are known as “indictable only” and can only be dealt with in the Crown Court, although they start in the magistrates’ court. The Crown Court also deals with appeals against decisions of the magistrates’ court. Appeals here are heard by a judge and two lay magistrates.
