R v NOEL MORAN (2007)

PUBLISHED November 29, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 2947

A judge had been correct to admit evidence of a defendant's involvement in a previous violent incident with a co-defendant, as it went towards an important matter in issue between the Crown and the defendant. In addition, letters from two jurors expressing concern that an incorrect verdict had been reached, essentially amounted to a change of heart and formed no basis to interfere with the conviction.
