[2007] EWCA Crim 1472

It was unhelpful for a trial judge to give to a jury the Judicial Studies Board's specimen directions in relation to bad character by reference to the terms of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.101 without relating them to the facts of the case, and to include a direction that referred to a person with bad character being less likely to tell the truth.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Phillips LCJ, Henriques J, Teare J)
