What is a Magistrates’ Court?
What sentence can a Magistrates’ Court give?
The punishments in the Magistrates’ Court are:
- up to six months in prison or up to 12 months in total for more than one offence
- a fine of up to £5,000
- a community sentence such as doing unpaid work in the community
- a combination of punishments – such as a fine and unpaid work in the community.
If a sentence is longer than six months the Magistrates’ Court can commit a case to Crown Court for sentencing.
