County Court Representation

The County Court (Criminal Division) is a higher level court above that of the Magistrates Court.  Matters in these courts are heard by a Judge. County Courts will also conduct appeals from the Magistrates Court. These courts also conduct criminal trials with juries for indictable offences such as:

  • serious theft,
  • armed robbery,
  • drug trafficking,
  • sexual offences,
  • fraud and dishonesty offences,
  • culpable driving,
  • serious assault and
  • income and sales tax offences.

Offences that cannot be heard by the County Court jurisdiction include;

  • treason
  • murder and
  • associated offences
