[2013] EWCA Crim 1371

A judge had erred in informing the jury of his decision that a victim lacked mental capacity to make an admissible witness statement where the defendant had asserted that the victim had mental capacity to make a contract with him. However, that did not render the conviction unsafe as the evidence before the jury of the victim's dementia and its deleterious effect was overwhelming.
