Could you explain what’s the difference between indictable offences and summary offences?
Very briefly, an indictable offence is one where the accused is (probably) tried by judge and jury whereas a summary offence is tried in a magistrate’s court
There are exceptions and alternatives (for example an offence could be triable either way) but the first paragraph is most likely the extent of knowledge required for F4
Summary offence is now ok for me but unfortunately not indictable offence.
Could you just give me a brief example of indictable offence?
Again, briefly, indictable offences are typically the really serious ones like rape and murder
