R v OSBORNE (2010)

PUBLISHED March 24, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 547

Fresh evidence showing that an offender was suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder when he committed murder was not admitted, as it would not afford any ground for allowing his appeal against conviction on the basis of diminished responsibility.
