Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
No, I am sorry.
It will be committed to the nearest crown court from the Magistrates court covering the area in which the offence was said to have been committed. It is listed for ease of the prosecution rather than the defendant I'm afraid.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?

Hi, what if I moved before it went to the magistrates court?Also if I moved to a new address, would this new address be named in the media or would they mention my original address?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
It wouldn't make any difference.
The issue is where the crime was committed.
They will need your new address and you may be on a condition of residence.

Thanks. Would the media be able to mention the original address even though I wouldn't be living there anymore.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, they could but they won't do that. They would have no reason to do so.
