R v AYHAN MURAT (2011)

PUBLISHED December 13, 2011

Where a defendant was committed to the Crown Court for sentence for both either-way and summary-only offences, provided the power of the magistrates' court to commit for sentence had been properly exercised in respect of one or more of the either-way offences in accordance with the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 s.3, a mistake in recording the statutory basis for committal for the summary-only offences would not invalidate the committal.
