The decision of magistrate court in criminal cases can be appealed to which two of the following courts?
A) crown court B) High court C) court of appeal
This question is in Kaplan kit and answer there is A&B
Shouldn’t the answer be A&C because I haven’t read that high court deal with any criminal case appeal
So the High Court has 3 civil divisions (Chancery, Queens Bench and Family). But it also has a Criminal Division so criminal cases may well be appealed to the High Court.
I hope this clarifies.
But question asked for two court in which decision could be appealed. Which one is excluded and why??? I haven’t seen or read any criminal division of high court in textbook
If you are appealing from the Magistrates you cant jump to the Court of Appeal.
You therefore have to either appeal to the Crown Court or the High Court (Criminal Division).
