[2012] NICA 46

The safety of a conviction for murder was not affected by the judge's refusal to admit evidence that the defendant had previously pleaded guilty to assault in a related attack. The fact of that conviction would have been to the defendant's discredit, and any benefit from introducing the evidence was at best marginal.
