[2012] EWCA Crim 1036

The principle in R. v Briggs-Price (Robert William) [2009] UKHL 19, [2009] 1 A.C. 1026 only arose in the most limited circumstances, namely where the Crown sought to prove the criminal offence of money laundering with a view to establishing benefit. It did not arise where the Crown sought to rely on criminal offending other than a conviction to establish the existence and quantum of a defendant's benefit from criminal conduct. The burden of proof on the Crown in such circumstances remained the civil standard, not the criminal standard.
