star this property answer text <p>The latest annual report and accounts are now available on the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) Website. The table below shows that, during each of the last four most recently available years, conviction rates have remained stable in both magistrates’ courts and at the Crown Court.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>2014-2015</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015-2016</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016-2017</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2017-2018</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Magistrates' Courts Conviction Rate</p></td><td><p>84.2%</p></td><td><p>83.8%</p></td><td><p>84.8%</p></td><td><p>84.8%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Crown Court Conviction Rate</p></td><td><p>79.4%</p></td><td><p>79.2%</p></td><td><p>78.9%</p></td><td><p>79.9%</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Data Source: CPS Management Information System</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Cases prosecuted at magistrates’ courts tend to comprise minor or less serious offences with a greater proportion of defendants pleading guilty (78.0% during 2017-18, compared to 70.9% at the Crown Court). By way of example, motoring cases comprise over 21% of cases in the magistrates’ courts but only 2% in the Crown Court.</p><p>In contrast, a greater proportion of cases triable on indictment at the Crown Court are serious and complex in nature, and defendants are more likely to plead not guilty. During the most recent year, 16.8% of prosecutions at the Crown Court resulted in a trial, with a conviction after contest rate of 54.0%, compared to 9.1% of magistrates’ courts prosecutions and a conviction after contest rate of 62.1%.</p>
