What types of cases are heard in the Crown Court?
Liverpool Crown Court representation: Some offences “indictable only” can only be heard in the Crown Court. These types of cases are the most serious and include murder, manslaughter, rape and intentional wounding. Other cases such as fraud, drug offences some assaults are ‘triable either way offences’ and can be dealt with either by the Magistrate’s Court or Crown Court.
