R v H (2012)

PUBLISHED July 26, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1797

Convictions for sexual offences were safe where the trial judge had minimised the effect of a juror's comments to the rest of the jury as to her personal knowledge in respect of the defendant's alibi. The situation that arose was of the defendant's own making in a case where there was very strong evidence against him.
