An irregularity in the information or summons is cured by the defendant's appearance to answer the charge1. Where more than one defendant is charged with the same offence under one of the Acts in respect of which a penalty is imposed on every person offending against the statute, each of them is liable to the full penalty if convicted2. A defendant who is convicted may appeal to the Crown Court3, or he may require the justices to state a case for the opinion of the High Court
