English term or phrase: plea before venue
In either-way offences, a somewhat complex procedure, known as plea before venue, takes place in the Magistrates' Court. First, you indicate how you intend to plead to each of the charges. If you enter a guilty plea, then the Magistrates' Court goes on to consider sentence, but may still decide to commit you to the Crown Court for a heavier sentence than they have power to impose.
