Always elect Crown Court trial wherever possible.
They may well say that their powers are not suitable and commit itanyway but you are much better off in the Crown Court than in the magistrates.Nobody has any respect for the Magistrates Court. It is just degrees ofdisrespect really.
If you are facing this then on no account consent to trial bymagistrates .
The only good thing about trial by magistrates is that theirsentencing powers are capped and they do generally give people lower sentences.Of course, if you are a cynical person, you might think that the reason thatthey do that is to prevent appeals which would shine sunlight upon their unfairand unarguable decisions.
