[2006] EWHC 3146 (Admin)

Although a magistrates' legal adviser had failed to ask the accused whether he pleaded guilty or not, as required under the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980 s.9, the appellant had not been disadvantaged by the error and it could not be said that the proceedings were a nullity. The magistrates had erred in conflating two separate by laws into one information.
