R v KATIE SINGH (2010)

PUBLISHED January 15, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 591

In a trial for possession of criminal property where the issue was whether or not the defendant knew or suspected that money given to her by her cohabitee was the proceeds of crime, the judge had been correct to permit the Crown to cross-examine her on luxury items in her home in order to suggest that her cohabitee's lifestyle must have told her that he was involved in crime.
