If you are charged with an offence, you will be required to attend the Magistrates' Court. This is where less serious offences (e.g. theft, criminal damage and common assault) are tried. The case can be heard either by a bench of magistrates (otherwise known as Justices of the Peace) or by a district judge.
If your case is more serious or complex, or you have requested trial by jury, your case could be sent to a Crown Court.
