Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of F) v SOUTHAMPTON CROWN COURT (2009)

PUBLISHED July 7, 2009

[2009] EWHC 2206 (Admin)

A judge had applied the wrong test when refusing to grant pre-sentence bail. It was not a question of whether the judge was sure that the offender would turn up or stay out of trouble but whether there were substantial grounds for believing that he would abscond or commit further offences.
