[2004] EWCA Crim 821

The defendant's conviction for attempted murder was safe as the judge had been right to allow evidence of the defendant's previous conviction for a similar offence to be adduced given the strong identification evidence and to rebut possible innocent explanations given by the defendant. The jury had been clearly and carefully directed as to how they could use the evidence.

CA (Crim Div) (Hunt J, Crane J, Rose LJ)
