R (on the application of BOOTA) v GWENT MAGISTRATES COURT (Defendant) & CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (Interested Party) (2012)

PUBLISHED July 30, 2012

[2012] EWHC 3550 (Admin)

A defendant's conviction for assault was quashed as a judge had erred in refusing a submission of no case to answer, as the circumstantial evidence at the end of the prosecution's case did not justify conviction.
