Practice and Procedure

R v SAM HALLAM (2012)

PUBLISHED May 17, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1158

The court quashed as unsafe convictions for murder, violent disorder and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm. The convictions had been based on flawed identification evidence and, as a result of fresh evidence, the basis of the Crown's case had fallen away.
