Liam was convicted of a criminal offence by a Magistrate’s Court.
If Liam has grounds to appeal, which court will the case move to next?
Court of Appeal
Why is the answer B and not A? Could you please help me with this sir… isn’t crown court the next level higher than magistrates to hear appeals of criminal cases?

If you both were to look at the thread with the same heading from xyzc with six posts in the thread, you’ll find that I answered this same question last week

Sir im so confused, bpp says all criminal case appeals go to crown court.. both the diagrams of english civil court say the same thing… Why would a criminal case appeal go to county court I assume that is what you said in the other thread right? It is a criminal case and not a civil case

Kaplan text says the same thing that from magistrates court, case on questions of facts (i.e whether defendant is guilty or not) goes to crown court.. but case stated appeals on point of law from Magistrates court goes to high court.
Could you please explain the answer for the mcq with the help of these references It’ll help a lot please sirrr

Please forgive me! I must have been having a senior moment there and missed the point of the fact that Liam had been convicted of a criminal offense
You are, of course, correct and that the appeal is made to the Crown Court
Technically, appeal is made to the Magistrates Court but the appeal is heard in the Crown Court but, for our purposes we accept that decisions made by Magistrates in Magistrates Court criminal cas may be appealed to the Crown Court
I do sincerely hope that that is now clear and again I apologise for my earlier mistake

It is absolutely ok sir.. Thanks a ton..
SO im assuming that the answer given behind bpp, which says that the appeal would be to high court is wrong.

That I believe I can agree with – the appeal will be in Magistrates Court against the magistrates’s decision and the appeal itself will be heard in Crown Court
I’m glad to have sorted that one out … even though it did take some time
