R v (1) O (2) J (3) S (2008)

PUBLISHED March 6, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 463

A ruling made after the close of the prosecution case that the bulk of the evidence of the Crown's key witness was inadmissible and that the jury would be directed to ignore it could fall within the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.58, and an application made on the day after the ruling for permission to appeal against it could be sufficiently immediate for the purposes of the Criminal Procedure Rules 2005 r.67.2(1) and r.67.5(1).
