Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
Are you pleading guilty or not guilty?
You can’t go to crown court for common assault. I assume that is what the charge is, assault by beating?
The matter will be set down for a trial and the magistrates will decide whether you are guilty or not guilty.
You can get her to give evidence on your behalf.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
Unlikely you would be found guilty. No, you can’t take it to crown court as it is summary only meaning magistrates court only.
Does that clarify?
You can use duty, that is fine. The first hearing will be plea only.
The second hearing will be trial.
Bail conditions stay unless lifted or you are found not guilty.
Yes, if you plead not guilty there will be a second hearing.
The first hearing is not the trial.
You should consider a public access barrister to represent you.
