[2012] EWCA Crim 1939

Following committal for sentencing, a Crown Court had acted beyond its powers when sentencing an offender to nine months' imprisonment for an offence of theft. The case should have been committed to the Crown Court for sentencing under the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 s.6 rather than under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 Sch.12 Pt 2 para.8(6) with the result that its sentencing powers were limited to those of magistrates.

CA (Crim Div) (Irwin J, Nicola Davies J)
