[2008] EWCA Crim 1162

Where a defendant had been charged with alternative counts, the trial judge should not have taken a verdict from a jury on the less serious count before giving them more time to consider their verdict on the more serious count, but that had not rendered unlawful their subsequent verdict of guilty on the more serious count.
