What is the Crown Court?

The Crown Court is one of the 3 senior courts under England and Wales law, carrying out 4 different types of activity, namely:

  1. Appeals of decisions at Magistrates Courts
  2. The sentencing of defendants that are found guilty at Magistrates Courts for more serious offences
  3. Trials where it is required for a jury to sit
  4. Sentencing of those defendants that are found guilty within a Crown Court


Crown Courts can often deal with the most serious criminal allegations and offences where a judge and jury will often be present to cast judgement on the defendant(s).
