R v T (2010)

PUBLISHED July 12, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 1878

Criticism of a judge's remarks made when giving a good character direction in a trial for violent disorder was unjustified. Taking the summing-up as a whole and analysing all that was said about the offender's character, the summing-up did not render the jury's guilty verdict unsafe.
