Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of GOLROKHI) v CHELMSFORD CROWN COURT (2013)

PUBLISHED October 10, 2013

There was nothing to suggest that a guilty plea to an offence of entering the United Kingdom without a passport had been equivocal. The Crown Court on hearing the offender's appeal against conviction had not erred in failing of its own motion to consider whether the plea had been a nullity as a result of the offender's claim that she had not been advised of possible defences.
