Almost all available forms of sentence may be passed by the Crown Court1, although certain forms of sentence are available only in the cases of offenders of specified ages, or are subject to restrictions upon their use in relation to offenders within specified limits of age2. A magistrates' court may also commit an offender to the Crown Court for sentence where it considers its own sentencing powers inadequate in light of the seriousness of the either-way offence3 or where he has indicated that he would plead guilty to an either-way offence and the court has committed in to trial
