Criminal negligence

Criminal negligence is a far more serious form of negligence that usually involves the death of another individual. The defendant has failed to perceive the serious nature of his or her actions and instead precipitated a gross violation of the standard of care expected on an individual.

Crown Court

The Crown Court hears criminal cases that have been committed for trial before a judge and jury by a Magistrates Court. They also hear appeals for cases that were first dealt with by a Magistrates Court.
