[2013] EWCA Crim 258

The case of R. v Caley (David) [2012] EWCA Crim 2821, (2013) 177 J.P. 111 demonstrated that when considering the discount to which a defendant was entitled for a guilty plea, the court had to consider when the defendant had the first reasonable opportunity to indicate, not just to enter, a plea of guilty. That opportunity generally arose not at the plea and case management hearing but at the defendant's first appearance before the magistrates, or immediately on arrival at the Crown Court.
