Hi what is your query please?
Hi thank you for your message, the offences are summary only offences therefore the matter should not be referred to the crown court no and should be dealt with in the magistrates court.

Hi thank you for your message, yes I understand. When your matter got transferred to the crown court last time was this along with another offence?
Hi thank you for your message, yes so a case can only be transferred to the crown court from the magistrates court for sentencing in very certain conditions including circumstances where the summary only offence is sent with a triable either way i.e. a case that can be tried either in the magistrates or crown court. Therefore, it is likely in your previous case that is what happened but in this instance all the offences are summary only and so cannot be sent to the crown court for trial.
