Will there be a jury?

By

In the Magistrates Court all aspects of the case are dealt with by a judge alone. If you plead not guilty, it will be a judge that hears the evidence and determines whether you are guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty (or are found guilty), it will be a judge that sentences you.

If you plead not guilty in the District Court or Supreme Court, it is a jury that will hear the evidence and determine whether you are guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty (or are found guilty), it will be a judge that sentences you.
