[2013] EWCA Crim 1723

A judge's refusal to discharge a jury, following the acquittal of one of the accused on the basis that there was no case to answer, did not render the remaining offenders' convictions unsafe. Even though the acquitted individual had run a cut-throat defence which implicated the others, the judge had correctly directed the jury as to the consequences of the acquittal and fully summarised the evidence for the jury.
