R (on the application of AHMED) v BRADFORD MAGISTRATES' COURT (2008)

PUBLISHED October 29, 2008

[2008] EWHC 2934 (Admin)

A decision of a magistrates' court to convict an individual for an offence of assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty was quashed where its decision had given the impression that it had not applied the correct criminal standard of proof but rather the civil standard.
