[2004] EWHC 1369 (Admin)

In circumstances where the magistrates' court had given an unqualified indication to a defendant that he would not be committed to the crown court for sentencing, the defendant had a legitimate expectation that he would not be sentenced at the crown court and a later decision to so commit him would be quashed.
