Where a person has been convicted or acquitted of a criminal offence under the Armed Forces Act 20061 or has had such an offence taken into consideration2 when being sentenced, then a civilian court3 may not try that person for any offence for which it would be debarred from trying him if he had been convicted or (as the case may be) acquitted by a court in England and Wales of the offence4.
An offence, however, allegedly committed by a reservist under service law which is triable by the court martial may be tried summarily by a magistrates' court
