Practice and Procedure

R v JAKE BROWN (2013)

PUBLISHED May 8, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 1064

An offender was not entitled to the full number of days credit for time served on bail under a qualifying curfew condition, as required under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.240A(2), as he had treated his bail conditions with a significant measure of contempt. He had only allowed his liberty to be restricted when it suited him and, applying s.240A(4), it would be unjust to give him full credit.
