[2009] EWCA Crim 544

A conviction for unlawful wounding with intent was quashed, as the judge had misdirected the jury by stating that they had to be sure that the prosecution had proved that the offender had intended to cause grievous bodily harm or to wound, rather than directing them that the prosecution had to prove intention to cause really serious harm. As there was not enough evidence to prove that the offender had intended to cause really serious harm, the conviction was replaced with one of unlawful wounding.
