I was reading into the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006.
At the sentencing section, I note the following:
(a)on summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 12 months or to a fine not exceeding the statutory maximum or to both;
(b)on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to a fine or to both.
I thought that in a Magistrates' Court, the Magistrates could not sentence somebody to over 6 months imprisonment per offence, and in the case of numerous offences the total combined sentence could not exceed 12 months.
Based on this, how could a defendant be sentenced to 12 months on summary conviction for just a single offence?
