Answer Charge Hearing

During the answer charge hearing , the defendant will be required to either plead guilty or not guilty.

If they plead guilty, they will be committed for sentence. If they plead not guilty, they will be committed to a superior court if the magistrate determines that there is a 'case to answer'.
