Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of CARSON) v EALING MAGISTRATES COURT (2012)

PUBLISHED May 4, 2012

[2012] EWHC 1456 (Admin)

A police bail condition that a woman should not continue to reside at her own home, imposed following her arrest on suspicion of the racially aggravated harassment of her next-door neighbours, was disproportionate where she had not been charged with any offence and the bail conditions would remain for several months, there was no allegation of violence or criminal damage and it was a very serious matter to exclude someone from their own home.
