Practice and Procedure

R v B (2009)

PUBLISHED October 9, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 2113

Convictions for indecency with a child and indecent assault were safe, as the judge had correctly left to the jury the possibility of hearsay evidence forming evidence of a confession by asking it to decide whether the witness was telling the truth and, if so, whether the evidence was capable of being a confession.
