R (on the application of RYAN TINNION) (Claimant) v READING CROWN COURT (Defendant) & CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (Interested party) (2009)

PUBLISHED November 3, 2009

[2009] EWHC 2930 (Admin)

A recorder had erred in ruling on an appeal against conviction that evidence from two witnesses as to a young offender's alibi was inadmissible because of the offender's failure to give notice of his intention to call the witnesses to give alibi evidence. Even if the offender had been required to provide a defence statement with details of alibi witnesses, such a failure would not render the evidence inadmissible.
