R v S (2007)

PUBLISHED February 8, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 335

Although a judge had failed to consider the list of factors relevant to hearsay evidence under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.114(2), the decision to admit as evidence a document summarising the circumstances of the defendant's previous conviction was correct, as the circumstances of the alleged offences were very similar to those of the conviction offence.
