Offences under the malicious communications act are either way offence.This means the matter can be dealt with in Magistrates court or crown court.
The maximum sentence for the offence is 6 months imprisonment and or fine at the magistrates court, or up to 2 years in the Crown court.
If the only offence is low level malicious communications then yes magistrates would likely deal with the matter.
However, then nature of the communications (conspiring to rape a 13 year old) is also a very serious offence that could be prosecuted.
Then hopefully only the communication offence to worry about.
Your very welcome.
