Accused Committed To Stand Trial – Committal Process

Being committed to stand trial is the term given to the process after a committal where an accused is fighting the allegations against them. As opposed to being committed for a plea of guilty.

The matter is then sent to the Court that has the jurisdiction and will be hearing the matter. Almost always sexual offending charges are heard in the County Court. On very rare occasions sex charges are heard in the Supreme Court.
