[2007] EWHC 3218 (Admin)

Where a woman's conviction for the manslaughter of her baby son had been quashed on the basis that fresh medical evidence might have led the jury to reach a different conclusion, the requirement under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 s.133(1) that the fresh evidence demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt that there had been a miscarriage of justice was not fulfilled, so she was not entitled to compensation.
