R v J (2009)

PUBLISHED December 17, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 2800

Two convictions for possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply were a nullity where the document upon which the offender was convicted had not been signed and therefore was not a valid indictment, despite the fact that the offender had suffered no injury as a result.
