Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of LEE) v CHIEF CONSTABLE OF ESSEX (2012)

PUBLISHED January 20, 2012

[2012] EWHC 283 (Admin)

Whilst police officers had administered a caution to an adult offender for offences under the Criminal Justice Act 1988 s.160 in ignorance of a recent, and therefore relevant, Home Office Circular, they had nevertheless substantially complied with it by the procedure they adopted, and the caution would not be quashed on that basis.
